The game is being played on Saturday, but it was already drawing more betting action than any other event for the upcoming weekend. The LSU vs. Auburn betting odds have moved very little since opening at LSU -2 ½. Since that time, approximately 50 percent of the reporting online sports books have moved the line to -3.

More than 96 percent of the action was going the way of LSU, a team that is 3-8-1 ATS (Against The Spread) in their last 12 games overall.

This promises to be the most watched and bet on game of the upcoming weekend between two of the nations top ranked college football teams.

Charles Scott keeps leaving battered tacklers in his wake and LSU's running game looks as powerful as ever. If the seventh-ranked Tigers don't find a passing game to match, they may not have it so easy when they begin Southeastern Conference play at Auburn next weekend, writes Brett Martel of Rivals.com.

Figuring out some of the problems with the Tigers' offense might not be too difficult. They had 12 penalties in the game, many of them holding calls and false starts. They have lost six fumbles in the last two games.

Auburn also ranks 102nd nationally in red zone offense, scoring only 69 percent of the time when driving inside the opponents' 20.

The perfect record helps the players keep the faith in the offense.

"People are doubting it now, and saying that it's not working and it's not going to work," tight end Tommy Trott said. "But we really are so close.

"When we start moving the ball, we shoot ourselves in the foot. Once we take care of those silly penalties like holding ... Things will change when we get rid of that. The scoreboard will start to light up a little bit more."

An analysis of this game line by Gambling911.com shows that this game played in Auburn makes both teams nearly dead even with LSU perhaps having only a one point edge. Hence, an Auburn cover looks especially likely. These two teams tend to play very close games in recent times and they have been alternating wins, with LSU having won by a much larger margin of 6 points the last time they both met.

The Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings, however there was limited information related to the under and movements at press time Tuesday.

LSU vs. Auburn Betting Odds were available at BetUS.com, which had the line at Auburn +3 at press time Tuesday.
