The LSU Tigers have proven themselves to be a legit team both within the SEC and in the country. They are now ranked 22nd after winning nine of their last ten games. They also atoned for a setback to the Arkansas Razorbacks in their last outing by edging the Mississippi State Bulldogs most recently.
The Auburn Tigers have also returned to form as they atoned for a three game losing streak by winning three straight games. Their win versus the struggling Florida Gators marked the third straight game to where their defense has allowed 65 points or less to opponents.
LSU, needed overtime to pick up the win as they outscored a high-scoring squad for the Bulldogs 9-5 en route to the victory. Tremont Waters shined on the offensive yet again for LSU as he ended with 26 points along with 5 assists. Naz Reid also put in a monster game off the bench in ending with 29 points while grabbing 9 rebounds in the victory.
Guard Waters (16 ppg) has been the tip of their success, offensively, as he not only shoots 45% from the floor, but, has put in big performances throughout the year at the shooting guard position. Skylar Mays (13 ppg) has also showed a ton of potential at point guard for LSU while Reid (14 ppg, 6 rebs) is an intimidating presence in the lane at 6’10”.
This will be the first meeting of the year amongst these teams as LSU has won four of their last five games at home. Of course, LSU will also want to remain in hot pursuit of the Kentucky Wildcats for the number two spot within the SEC with an all-important victory on Saturday .
The Auburn Tigers relied on their leading scorer on the season in Bryce Brown (17 ppg) as the guard was able to score 14 points to lead Auburn past the offensively challenged Florida Gators. The defense for Auburn held the Gators to just 4-20 successful attempts from three-point range as well in the loss.
The resurgence for the Tigers has certainly their ability to hunker down defensively. In fact, the Tigers are allowing just 61 points per game during their current winning streak. On the other hand, their offense has returned to form in scoring 80 or more points in three of their last four games.
Brown has been the go-to guy on offense for Auburn throughout the year. However, guard Jared Harper (15 ppg, 6 ass) has provided a lift to his squad as well by shooting 38% from three-point range this season. Finally, Chuma Okeke (10 ppg, 6 rebs) continues to be the dirty man of the crew in collecting rebounds while locking down the lane for his team on a nightly basis.
Look for this matchup to be an exciting one as LSU has been dominant as home, as stated. Auburn, on the other hand, enters this matchup losers of three of their last four road games, overall. Also, each of those losses were by an average of nine points.

Free Auburn Tigers vs LSU Tigers NCAAB Prediction:
While one can expect a fast-paced matchup in this contest versus two teams that can certainly score the basketball, one should also expect the defenses to decide this game late.
In all, I happen to believe that this allows LSU to have much of an advantage as their defense has been lights out, particularly at home. With that being the case, look for the home team Tigers to grind out an exciting win in this SEC contest while hitting some huge baskets down the stretch as they will pick up an 87-81 victory over a solid Auburn squad.
4* Free NCAAB Betting Pick: LSU Tigers -1.5
I will back LSU for this contest with the small spread as they have had a huge advantage playing in front of their home fans throughout the season. Auburn, on the other hand, has struggled away from home lately and will do so, yet again, as the home team will neutralize Brown and company just enough in which to squeak out a victory.
