LSU vs Auburn Prediction & Pick
LSU has gotten the better of Auburn over the years, winning 31 of the 54 all-time head-to-head matchups. Things have shifted in Auburn's favor lately after winning each of the last two meetings between the SEC rivals, however, I'm backing LSU this weekend.
At the end of the day, Auburn's defense just isn't that great, giving up 372.7 total yards per game (No. 54) so far. That's the type of matchup that LSU can do some damage against after averaging 466 total yards (No. 24) this season and 44.7 points over the last three games.
Auburn might have looked solid so far, but LSU has the edge due to its offense.
Final Score Prediction: LSU: 28 | Auburn: 20

LSU vs Auburn Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
While the winner has varied, the majority of the most recent LSU-Auburn battles have been fairly close. In fact, five of the last six meetings have been decided by five or fewer points.
Keeping that in mind, I don't think that LSU will cover the 8.5-point spread on the road. LSU might be the slightly better team, but Auburn is competitive and has the home crowd support to help keep things close.
Bet: Auburn +8.5 (-115)
