LSU Tigers vs Alabama Crimson Tide Odds, Prediction, and Pick

Not only is the match-up between the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide this week the best match-up of the week, it is also the biggest and most anticipated match-up of the entire year. The Tigers are sitting with the number 1 ranking in the country, and are up against an Alabama team who currently holds the number 2 ranking in the nation. These two teams are fighting to finish atop the SEC West, and this match-up will essentially decide who wins it, unless Arkansas can come out of nowhere and get a bit of luck to take it down. The winner of this game will not only most likely represent the SEC West in the championship game for the SEC, but could potentially end up playing in the 2011 National Championship. And now we take a look at this match-up, as we have two teams who are sitting undefeated with 8-0 records, and are 5-0 in SEC play.

The LSU Tigers have been a bit of a surprise, but have scored over 35 points in every game but one this season. On the other side of the ball, they have only given up more than 11 points twice, which shows how well-rounded of a team that this Tigers squad really is. But possibly the most impressive thing about this team, is that five of their eight total wins have been against teams who were sitting in the top 25. Now when you take a look at the Tide, you find some stats that are interesting close. They have scored over 34 points in every game but one this season, and have only given up more than 11 points one time all season. Of their eight total games, they have beaten three top 25 teams. This match-up will kick off at 8:00pm EST on Saturday night.

You have to love this game between two of College Football's juggernauts. This game between the Tigers and Crimson Tide will be talked about all week, and most likely talked about for the rest of this season. While this is a match-up between two teams with excellent defenses, and excellent offenses; only one team will be able to represent the SEC West in the SEC championship game. I see this game being a field goal game, but more than that, I can't see the LSU Tigers losing by more than 3. The team is too well coached and well-rounded to bow out, and they are the number 1 team in the country currently. I think that the Tigers have actually flown under the radar a bit, as crazy as that sounds, and I think that they will go on the road and get a massive win. I'm taking the Tigers to win by a field goal.

I just can't see the Tigers getting blown out in this one. As great as both teams are, I think it'll be an incredibly close match-up. This is why I like the LSU +4.5 side of the bet so much. On top of this, you can get some good odds for betting on the Tigers to win the game outright as well. I'll be picking the Tigers on the road, and also betting on them to pull of the upset with the odds as well.

  • Pick: LSU Tigers +4.5
