The No. 10 LSU Tigers host the No. 17 Florida Gators on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on CBS and open as 6.5 point favorites according to VegasInsiders.
According to oddshark, LSU is 5-1 on the season but are 3-2-1 against the spread, 1-2 against the spread while playing at Tiger Stadium and 0-1 in SEC games against the spread at home.
Florida is 4-1 on the season, 2-3 against the spread, 1-1 against the spread away from The Swamp and 1-0 against the spread in road conference games.
The recent rivalry between the two sec teams has been split right down the middle with each team earning five wins over the past 10 meetings with the average score of the 10 games decided by less than a field goal. Florida’s average score in the past 10 meetings is 22.2 while LSU’s scoring average is 19.4.
While the record is 5-5 straight up, LSU is 3-6-1 against the spread against Florida in the last decade, but Florida is 3-8 against the spread in it’s last 11 games.
LSU lost straight up at Florida last season 14-6, but this game should see more points on the scoreboard despite Florida’s No. 1 scoring defense in the conference.
