The LSU Tigers and the Auburn Tigers always go at it with manic intensity. This will be especially true on Saturday in a game with national title implications.

Why To Bet On LSU

The Tigers from Baton Rouge – who can be distinguished by being called the Bayou Bengals instead – are the masters of the late-game escape. Somehow, this team managed to win against Tennessee Volunteers despite playing incredibly poorly. Somehow, this team managed to survive a blind, over-the-shoulder fake-field-goal lateral by a holder – a lateral that bounced once on the ground before the kicker picked it up and ran with it for a first down – in a road win at Florida Gators. Somehow, this team just manages to dig out close wins left and right. LSU is never pretty, and its offense has been a mess this season, but at the end of the day, the Bayou Bengals are unbeaten, and they have a pretty good defense with fast athletes who just might be able to contain Auburn’s sensational quarterback, Cameron Newton. If LSU gets a big defensive effort from all of its studs, particularly do-everything cornerback Patrick Peterson, it could limit Auburn’s points and turn this game into an old-fashioned 16-13 slugfest. That’s the kind of game LSU is equipped to win. Auburn will triumph if it scores 30 or more points, but if LSU keeps the score in the high teens or the very low 20s, it has a good shot this weekend on the Alabama Plains.

Why To Bet On Auburn

The Tigers are at home, for one thing, as they welcome LSU to Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn has played all of its really big games at home thus far, taking down Clemson, South Carolina Gamecocks, and then the Arkansas Razorbacks this past weekend. Auburn is a thriving team that’s full of confidence and has been able to finish games strong. Auburn uncorked 28 fourth-quarter points to blow past Arkansas, and that came after the twin takedowns of Clemson and South Carolina. In each of those two games, Auburn erased double-digit first-half deficits (17-0 against Clemson and 20-7 against South Carolina). This is a team that’s never going to crumble when things go bad; it will always fight back.

The biggest reason to take Auburn, though, is Cameron Newton. LSU doesn’t have him, and Auburn does. Newton doesn’t throw tons of passes each game – he threw only 14 passes this past Saturday against Arkansas, completing 10 of them – but the big yet speedy signal caller is continuing to overwhelm opponents with his running ability. It’s hard to deny the ability of a man who takes center stage in a 65-43 win for his team. Newton might have thrown for only 140 yards against Arkansas, but he generated a 65-point onslaught for his team by running for 188 yards and bowling over Arkansas defenders in the process. The spectacular display lifted Newton to the top of the Heisman Trophy list while other pursuers were eliminated. If Newton plays well, Auburn wins, period.

How The Game Will Play Out

Newton will indeed play well, but LSU’s defense will put up a good fight. In the end, the Bayou Bengals’ offense won’t have enough juice to prevail. This game will stay close – Auburn will win the game, but LSU will cover the number.
