Why Louisiana Tech is a good bet at +20.5?

LA Tech might have the perfect mix of offense and defense to keep it close versus one of the top teams in the nation. The Bulldogs average 42 points per while only allowing an average of 21.5.In their last game, LA Tech held opponent Southern to 17 points while scoring 54 points on their end. The Bulldogs covered a massive -34.5 spread by 2.5 points. If they play up to their potential versus favored LSU, they could hang with the Tigers.

Why #6 LSU is a good bet at -20.5?

LSU’s already beaten two teams straight up as an against the spread dog, and they did it while polls had both teams ranked in the Top 10. LSU dominated then #9 Miami 33-13. Last Saturday, they demolished #7 Auburn 22-21.This is the first time since they won the National Championship with Matt Flynn under center that LSU has a quarterback that can control the flow of a football game. Joe Burrow hasn’t had a chance to truly show what he can do because LSU had to play perfect football to beat both Miami and Auburn.He should show what he can do on Saturday.

Louisiana Tech at #6 LSU Final Analysis

Although the line has dropped a full point from LSU -21.5 to LSU -20.5, most college football handicappers believe in the Tigers. It makes sense because while LSU has played great in 3 straight games, LA Tech struggled to beat South Alabama 30-26 in Week 1.There’s also the trend about the Bulldogs failing to play as well as they can after scoring 40 points in their previous game. LA Tech can put up points. Nobody can put up points versus LSU if the Tigers’ defense plays as well as it usually does.The bottom line is that if you back LA Tech, you’re saying that LSU bounces into a bad performance because they beat rival Auburn last week. That’s hope, not handicapping. I like the LSU Tigers to cover.
