The LSU-Alabama game is one of the most anticipated games of the year. The opening line for the game has Alabama favored by 3 points. Can you believe it? 3 points! Is there any game that’s more fun to bet on than this game?
The game features one of the best rivalry in all of sports. Every year, the heated competition between these two programs just gets better. It’s like they’re on a level playing field, but one school just wants to beat the other school. Every game has been a battle for the ages, but this year is supposed to be different. LSU is playing at home, which should provide an extra boost to the Tigers’ football team. They are also coming off an incredible season where they finished 12-2 and won the SEC West. A lot of people are anticipating a fantastic finish to the season and a possible playoff run. Can you blame them? It’s a rivalry that has graced us with some incredible games. The last few years haven’t been kind to LSU, as they haven’t been able to close the gap between the two teams, but this year is looking to be their year.
It’s hard to handicap a game when you don’t know the circumstances leading up to the game. What happened last year? Did LSU play poorly? Did Alabama play well? We don’t know. What we do know is that these two teams are always good against each other, and this year is no different. The question is, will the public be inclined to pay more attention to this game than usual?
The betting line for this game has opened up tremendously. The over/under for the game is set at 44.5, which is crazy considering the line before the season began was Alabama favored by 3. When you’re handicapping a game like this one, you need to look at a few key stats. First, the two teams don’t play well together. They’ve combined for 24 victories in their history, and only four of those have been decided by three points or less. Second, this game is always close. Can you imagine a game that was decided by more than 3 points? Third, the turnover margin has been incredibly tight throughout the years. Last year, LSU turned the ball over 12 times, while Alabama had just 10 turnovers.
It’s hard to say at this point. The atmosphere surrounding the game is expected to be electric, and the betting public is definitely on the side of the home team. For now, it’s difficult to avoid picking Alabama, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens before making any further predictions.
