LSU @ Mississippi State

"We played the right way for four quarters," Tigers head coach Brian Kelly said of the lopsided win over Grambling the week before. "Now we need to take that against an SEC opponent. That's the next challenge."

On paper at least, this should be another Tigers victory as they come into this game as the -9.5 favorite.  That number hadn't changed throughout the first half of the week leading up to this game.

LSU is still rated at No. 16 on Sagarin (83.86) while Miss State comes in at No. 38 (77.06) with its 2-0 record.  We get a number of -4.56, indicating a significant 5-point overlay. When we see this, it's important to check on injuries.  The Bulldogs secondary is a bit depleted with safety Ja'Kobi Albert out for the season but he's not worth a 5-point difference and his injury was preseason so that's already factored in.

Overlays in this spread range though have tended to be good to the favorites despite overlays greater than five points in general tending to be more beneficiary for the dog.

Comparables last year included:

The two closest comparables witnessed the underdogs covering.

FLA +10 to +9.5 FSU.  The road dog FSU didn't just cover, they won by 7 points.  Here we had an overlay of 3 to 3.5.

LSU -9.5 to -10 Texas A&M.  The Aggies also covered and won and there was an overlay of 3 to 3.5.

The next two games were pushes for many with the total falling on the number 10.

Syracuse +10 / +9.5 Wake.  The home favorite Wake covered and pushed with 10 point win and we had an overlay of close to 2 points.

Texas Tech -10 / -9.5 vs. Oklahoma State whereby the favorite, Oklahoma State, managed to cover with a 10 point win (push for those who had them at -10).  There was an overlay of 1 with the 9.5.

Texas -9.5 vs. KU also saw the favorite win, however, we had an underlay on that line of 3.5.

Using the current spread, the Bulldogs are 6-3 Against The Spread vs. LSU in the last nine meetings.

Mississippi State +10 (available as of Wednesday at DraftKings) looks like the more likely outcome.

LSU vs. Grambling Week 2

Jayden Daniels threw for 5 TDs and 269 yards as No. 14 LSU routed Grambling 72-10 following an embarrassing Week 1 loss to FSU.

LSU @ FSU Week 1

The line opened Tigers -2.5 and has only moved down a half point at a handful of sportsbooks.  It will be played in Orlando, giving the Noles what is pretty much home field advantage.

We get a line of LSU 3.68, suggesting an underlay of 1. Last year's college football betting model suggests a strong edge for LSU at this number.

This is the only game matching ranked opponents: No. 5 LSU, No. 8 Florida State.

The Seminoles won a wild Week 1 game last year in New Orleans against the Tigers. Neither was ranked at the time.
