Neither the LSU Tigers or the Auburn War Eables have covered the spread this season. Auburn has played and won twice straight up, but it took overtime to beat the Jacksonville State Gamecocks (+40) 27-20 last week. That’s Jacksonville State from the Ohio Valley Conference in the FCS. LSU has played just once, edging out the Mississippi State Bulldogs 21-19 as a 4-point road chalk. LSU’s season opener against McNeese State was postponed because of sever thunderstorms around Baton Rouge.
This figures to be a tough matchup for Auburn. First-year starter Jeremy Johnson has already thrown five interceptions this year, and he’ll be facing a LSU defense that statistically ranks among the nation’s best. Auburn is also missing a number of injured players on offense. LSU will be looking for revenge after getting hammered in a 41-7 decision to Auburn (–7 at home) last year. Auburn is 2-3 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings.
