You never know when LSU might just flip the switch and start playing like one of the most talented teams in the country. It could be this week though it definitely does not seem likely.
Auburn has already banked a big win but they probably need to be perfect until at least Alabama if they really want to have a shot at the playoffs. That means a nice home win in a spot where they definitely could be dealt a loss even though they are favourites.
The Tigers did not build upon their nice win over Miami in a high profile game last week. The win over the Hurricanes was a great sign but this program is still not where it should be.
That is because the offense is just nothing special. It really does not make sense that they can’t recruit a quarterback. Joe Burrow has the pedigree of coming from Ohio State bu through a couple of games is completing less than 50% of his passes.
The LSU defense is capable of slowing any team in the nation. They have speed all over the field and will make it tough for Auburn to do what they want to. If they can turn them over then maybe they can win.
Auburn passed its first test in beating Washington in the opener but can’t lose sight of what is in front of them. They have road games at Georgia and Alabama in November. A loss now would be a shame.
Against the Huskies they proved they can win a grinder which this one very well may be. I like that they are not trying to run quarterback Jarrett Stidham as much. He can do it but is better as a passer.
Alabama and Clemson will steal the defensive headlines but the Tigers defense is really good, especially up front. They will be able to have success against an attack that does not feature much from LSU.

Auburn as the home favourite is the play in this one, especially if you tease it down, though you may not have to.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Auburn -10
The home Tigers are not going to dominate, they are just going to win. Win each half by a TD and you get the cover.
LSU will have trouble moving the ball on the ground. They will have to open things up and then will make some mistakes.
