The 9th ranked LSU Tigers are coming off poor offensive performances which lead to their first loss of the year. They return this week coming off their bye week following a loss to then number one ranked Florida Gators. The Tigers were held to three points, their fewest points since a 7-3 loss to Auburn in 2006. They had 162 total offensive yards which were their fewest since managing 149 in a loss to Arkansas in 2000. Tigers quarterback Jordan Jefferson struggled especially going 11 for 17 for 96 yards and one interception. The offensive line for the Tigers has been struggling allowing 11 sacks in the last two games. Despite Jefferson’s ineffectiveness, coach Les Miles said he wasn’t planning on benching the sophomore in favor of Jarrett Lee, who was the Tigers starter last season before losing the job to Jefferson late in the year. While its offense is struggling, LSU expects another tight contest with Auburn. The last five meetings have been decided by a combined 19 points, with LSU winning three of five, including the last two. Last season, each were ranked in the top 10 when LSU pulled out a 26-21 victory, scoring with 1:03 remaining in the fourth quarter. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below.

Auburn vs LSU Predictions:
Final Score Prediction -LSU 28 Auburn 17
Spread Prediction – Bet LSU to cover the 7.5 point spread. I expect LSU to rebound big from the disappointing loss to Florida. Auburn averaged 45.3 points in its first four games, but has been held to 21.0 in the last three. Much of the dropoff can be attributed to quarterback Chris Todd’s struggles. He threw 11 touchdowns in the first four games, averaging 254 yards passing, but has thrown only one score in the last three. LSU is hungry to prove to the nation that they are for real and want redemption. Auburn has lost its last four trips to Baton Rouge, with its most recent victory there coming in 1999.
