Oklahoma vs LSU 2019 Peach Bowl Final Betting Analysis

Joe Burrow is great. Burrow doesn’t play defense, though. The LSU defense must stop the most electrifying quarterback in college football on Saturday. Jalen Hurts, the Alabama transfer, finished second to Burrow in Heisman voting.

Hurts threw for 3,632 yards. He threw 32 touchdowns to 7 interceptions. He completed 71.8% of his passes. All great stats but the stat that matters most are Jalen’s rush yards and rush touchdowns. Hurts ran for 841 yards. He scored 12 rushing touchdowns. He’s impossible to stop because unlike other rushing quarterbacks, Jalen is massive. Hurts is 6’ 2” and 219 pounds.

LSU should win the Peach Bowl on Saturday. But if we back the Tigers, we give Jalen Hurts and Oklahoma a 13 point lead. That’s impossible to do. Yes, LSU’s defense is better than Oklahoma’s. It’s not good enough to contain the best dual-threat quarterback in NCAAF. LSU wins the game. Oklahoma wins against the spread.
