LSU enters this contest as a clear home favorite on the spread (-14.5) and moneyline (-710). The takeback on a UAB upset win is nearly 5/1 at +490. The total currently sits at 50.5 points, which is about a TD below average compared to this week's college football projected totals.
UAB vs LSU Prediction & Pick
Speaking of rushing, UAB averages 248 rushing yards per game to rank top-5 in the country. The nation's No. 2 rusher DeWayne McBride has rushed for 120 yards or more in every game with 17 touchdowns. The Blazers' defense is the best in Conference USA allowing 21 points and 338 yards per game.
The problems for UAB are on the road, where they have turned the ball over 10 times in four games while going 0-4 SU/ATS with three losses as a favorite.
LSU's defense should contain UAB's offense and hold them under 300 yards. The Tigers may just turn to their power game and run more if they build a lead, but projections don't have them much over 380 yards of offense either. That would point to the underdog.
Final Score Prediction: LSU: 27 | UAB: 16

UAB vs LSU Best Bet

There is a huge strength of schedule discrepancy between these two teams with LSU (No. 4) and UAB (126). And LSU is still pushing for a longshot chance to make the CFB Playoff. It's a night game in Death Valley too and the Tigers may have no mercy.
UAB also needs a sixth win for a bowl invitation, and will clearly be looking forward to next week's game at La Tech. The Blazers have lost all five games this season by one score with four road losses failing to break 17 points three times. UAB has not played a team as physical and powerful as LSU, but this is a game they can take their shot at the big boys. Or will they just collect the paycheck and take their medicine in the Bayou? Let's lean on a lower-scoring result instead.
Bet: Under 50.5 Points (-110)
