Why To Bet On Alabama

The Crimson Tide are still defending national champions, and what’s really going to help them in this game is the fact that they are coming off a much-needed bye week. Last year, quarterback Greg McElroy saw his performance improve dramatically after a mid-season bye week. This year, one shouldn’t expect anything different for a man who has still lost just one game in one and a half seasons. Alabama was certainly pushed and taught in practice over the past two weeks by head coach Nick Saban, who knows how to prime the pump and get his team ready for big games such as this one. The coaching matchup between Saban and Les Miles is a mismatch, and that’s one of the biggest reasons to trust Alabama in this game. The Tide’s off week should also make their offensive line that much more powerful and effective against the teeth of LSU’s defense, which is its defensive front. As long as Alabama doesn’t turn the ball over, the Tide should be able to post a reasonable amount of points, probably something in the low to mid-20s. Against LSU’s woeful offense, that should be more than enough. The Tigers have failed to establish a reliable signal caller all season long and have never found a rhythm with their passing game. As long as the Tigers remain inconsistent on offense, Alabama’s main defensive weakness – the secondary – will not get exposed, and that’s a very important thing to remember about this game.

Why To Bet On LSU

The Tigers do not play that well at home during day games, but at night, the Tiger Stadium crowd in Baton Rouge will be revved up and ready to go. LSU will be surging with adrenaline after its own much-needed bye week. The Tigers had a chance to heal up after a punishing war with the Auburn Tigers on Oct. 23. They also had a chance to spend a lot of time on the practice field and clean up the issues that are plaguing their passing game. Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson have played musical chairs throughout October, so as November arrives, perhaps the bye week will create improvements under center. LSU has to exploit the Alabama secondary, and if there was ever a time when the Tigers could do just that, it’s after a bye week, when offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has had a chance to do extra work with his quarterbacks. The other thing that will give LSU some hope entering this game is that Alabama’s rushing offense is in the middle of the SEC. The Tide have not been as effective running the ball as they were last year. If LSU can stack up the run and make Alabama a one-dimensional offense, they’ll have a very good chance of keeping the game low-scoring and close.

How The Game Will Play Out

Alabama’s bye week will create the best performance this year from the Tide. The defending national champions will play up to their reputation, and LSU will not have much of a chance once the Tide get rolling.
