LSU-Mississippi State Line

The LSU-Mississippi State line was listed anywhere from -3.5 to -4 favoring Louisiana State.  The sports betting public was all over LSU in this game. 

LSU destroyed Northwestern State last week and enters this game at 2-0 after beating the almighty Oregon Ducks the week prior.  Oregon was ranked number 3.  The Mississippi State game will present the Tigers with yet another significant challenge early on in the season.

While it is a shortened week for LSU, head coach Lee Miles isn’t concerned.

"I look forward to it, to be honest with you," he said. "I think the change in schedule will be good for us."

The Bulldogs, who enter this game with a 1-1 record, do lead the SEC in total offense at 588 yards per game and have scored 11 touchdowns in two games.

The Bulldogs couldn't make a final play the last time LSU was in town, a 30-26 Tigers victory Sept. 26, 2009. LSU stopped Mississippi State three times inside the 3-yard line in the final minutes to win its fifth straight in Starkville.

The Tigers won their 11th in a row in this matchup last Sept. 18, 29-7 in Baton Rouge.

While LSU may have won 11 straight in this series Straight Up, Against The Spread is a different story.  Mississippi State has won 3 of the last 5 ATS head-to-head.

The last at-home game was lost by just 4 points, but that is still a number above the current spread.
