Auburn Tigers Vs LSU Tigers | College Football Week 9 Betting Odds & Pick
Auburn (6-1) At LSU (7-0) Betting Odds And Prediction
Joe Burrows, the hottest quarterback in the nation, wants to keep shining as the LSU Tigers host the Auburn Tigers. This will be one of the best college football games during Week 9.
Burrows’ stock could rise in the next couple of weeks. After facing Auburn, LSU will go against Alabama in Death Valley.
Let’s look at the betting odds and our prediction for the Auburn vs. LSU game this weekend:

What the NCAAF Odds say about the Auburn vs. LSU Matchup
LSU opened -11 in most markets, but the line has been bouncing around all over the place. The oddsmakers set the line as high as -12.5 but now is back at -11 at MyBookie.ag.
So far, 51% of the money is coming on LSU’s side to cover the spread.
Auburn Tigers’ Edge Over LSU
The loss to Florida three weeks ago still haunts Coach Gus Malzahn. Auburn bounced back by scoring 51 points on Arkansas last week. That result means very little, though. A massive victory against the Razorbacks is not good enough to be an indicator of anything.
Malzahn is one of the best coaches in College Football when it comes to finding weaknesses in his opponents. I would expect Auburn to be aggressive on offense against LSU. That’s the only way to beat the Tigers, and he knows it.
Exploiting The Weaker LSU Defense
Part of LSU’s culture used to be having a filthy defense that could stop even the most potent offenses. That’s in the past. LSU still has a good defensive unit but it has been vulnerable against strong passing offensives this season.
LSU has allowed 297.0 passing yards per game to Power 5 teams with a 7.4 yards-per-attempt average this season.
Freshman Bo Nix can expose them if the game plan is aggressive enough this weekend. That’s where Auburn can cover the spread in this game.
LSU Tigers’ Edge Over Auburn
The problem when facing LSU is teams usually want to match them score for score, and not many have a talented QBs like Joe Burrows.
Burrows is now the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy listed +115 at MyBookie.ag.
Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts is second at +150, and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa comes in third at +325.
Burrows Exceptional Season To Continue
Let’s put Burrows’ fantastic season in context. Over the last four games, Burrows has thrown 17 touchdowns against just one interception. He already set the school record with 29 passing TDs so far this year, and there are still four games left.
LSU’s offense is second in the league averaging 50.1 points per game because of Burrow’s insane momentum. The only better team is Oklahoma, which averages 50.4 PPG.
Yet, the Sooners play inside the Big 12, where sometimes playing defense seems to be optional. LSU is doing this in the SEC, and that’s beyond impressive.
Auburn vs. LSU Tigers NCAAF Week 9 Prediction
LSU is a National Championship contender listed at +400 to win the title.
After beating Florida two weeks ago, the team realized they have a phenomenal roster that can take them as far as they want to go. The next two weeks against Auburn and Alabama are the perfect opportunity to confirm that.
At +8000, Auburn is in an entirely different league. The College Football playoffs look like a longshot, but to keep the dream alive, they need to beat LSU. There is no other way.
LSU Dominating Each Game
LSU’s offense is both impressive and fun watch. It can do it all and it doesn’t seem to slow down.
Two weeks ago, Florida tried to match them in scoring and could not do it. The Tigers won by two touchdowns. I can see the same thing happening to Auburn this weekend.
LSU is just playing lights out. Every time they score, it will add a ton of pressure to Auburn’s freshman QB Bo Nix and he will be forced into mistakes. Bet LSU -11.
Our NCAAF Bet: LSU Tigers -11
