LSU Texas A&M Betting Predictions – LSU In Tough Against Explosive Aggies’ Offense

Posted by Blake Frazier on 10/18/2012 6:49:23 PM

After barely escaping with a 23-21 win over the previously undefeated South Carolina Gamecocks last sports betting weekend, the road for the No. 6 LSU Tigers won’t get any easier when they face the No. 18 Texas A&M Aggies at College Station this Saturday. LSU is in the midst of a stretch that includes a ridiculous stretch of five-straight games against nationally ranked SEC opponents, and after splitting the first two will need a big road win this weekend to remain in the national title picture.

College Football Betting Line: LSU Tigers – 3.5

The Aggies are coming off a 59-57 win over No. 23 Louisiana Tech and have won five-straight since opening their season with a close loss to the No. 2 Florida Gators. Texas A&M has scored at least 30 points in each of those five wins, setting up a tough test for the Tigers’ eighth-ranked scoring defense.

College Football Betting Preview: LSU

With a virtually non-existent passing game under quarterback Zach Mettenberger, LSU has relied on an efficient rushing attack and stout defense to get to 6-1. Mettenberger has completed just 46-percent of his passes the past two weeks while throwing two interceptions, and has connected on just one of his five passes in the red zone. Losing three starters on the offensive line certainly hasn’t helped, but the Tigers have been able to move the ball on the ground with freshman running back Jeremy Hill leading the way last week with 124 rushing yards. The ability to slow down the Aggies’ offense will be what makes the difference for this talented LSU team, which will be on the road for the second time in three weeks.

College Football Betting Preview: Texas A&M

Texas A&M has scored at least 48 points in four of its victories, right around its average of 47 so far this season. Freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel was a monster for the Aggies in their win against the Bulldogs, registering an SEC-record 576 total yards and six touchdowns, three on the ground and three through the air. Texas A&M will need to keep its star quarterback up against a talented Tigers’ front, and one of the keys will be protecting the football and avoiding costly turnovers. Manziel has thrown three interceptions over the past two weeks after throwing none in his first four games, and will need to be that much more careful with the ball this week as LSU guns for turnovers.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Tigers would not have covered this spread in either of the past two online sportsbook weeks, so it doesn’t make much sense to expect them to do it this week at College Station.  The Aggies’ offense is firing on all cylinders heading in to this meeting, and as long as they avoid costly turnovers they should have no problem at least keeping it close until the very end.
