Alabama-LSU Prediction and Spread Pick

It is hard to understand how top-ranked LSU is an underdog after winning in OT at Alabama and now playing in what will be a decided home field advantage in The Superdome.

Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide ranks first in the country at yards allowed per game (191.3) with LSU #2 allowing 252.1 yards/game. Offensively, LSU ranks #13 in points scored with 38.5 and Alabama ranks #16 with 36 points a game.

The Crimson Tide is led by Doak Walker award winner Trent Richardson (1,583 yds, 20 TDs) and QB A.J. McCarron (2,400 yds, 16 TDs). The Tigers are sparked by dual QBs Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee, who combined for 20 TDs and nearly 2,000 yards, and RBs Michael Ford (755 yds, 7 TDs). Spender Ware (700 yds, 8 TDs), and freshman sensation Kenny Hilliard (320 yards, 8 TDs).

Points will clearly be at a premium for this game, which is where LSU Heisman finalist Tyrann Mathieu comes into play with his knack making big plays as a punt returner. Look for the Tiger’s to claim the national title in convincing fashion, pulling away from the Crimson Tide in the 2nd half.

  • Prediction: LSU 27 | Alabama 10
  • Spread Pick: LSU +2
