LSU vs. Auburn betting odds were coming in at Auburn -6 a la Sportsbook.com.  This is where the line opened.  Sportsbook.com, however, was one of the few online sportsbooks still offering LSU vs. Auburn at this number.  Most books had taken the line down to -5.5.  Gambling911.com was observing even action on this game coming into Saturday. 

The two remaining SEC unbeaten teams meet Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. LSU has won four of its games by seven points or less this year. Auburn has also had some close calls, winning three games by exactly three points.

LSU’s unblemished record is puzzling, considering the Tigers have 2.4 turnovers per game and have yet to reach 225 passing yards in any of the seven contests. LSU has been lucky, but it has also been very good on defense, ranking third in the nation with just 242 YPG allowed. The Tigers are sixth against the run (84 YPG) and eighth in passing defense (159 YPG).

LSU has not yet faced a player that is the caliber of Auburn QB Cameron Newton. The Heisman front-runner is averaging 305 YPG of total offense with 13 TD and five INT. Newton’s 124 rushing YPG leads an Auburn team ranked sixth in the nation in rushing offense (284 YPG) and sixth in scoring (40.7 PPG). Newton has led Auburn to a whopping 47.3 PPG average in its last four games.

LSU has won the last three in this series, has covered the assigned spread in the last two games played vs. Auburn and has covered the current spread in the last six games played in this series.

LSU is 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0 while Auburn is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.

Auburn is just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a Against The Spread win. – Carrie Stroup, Gambling911.com.
