The LSU Tigers haven't lost to Auburn since 2016, and it certainly doesn't look like the oddsmakers believe that 2020 is going to the year that bucks this trend either.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, the odds and spreads around more than 100 of this fall's biggest matchups are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

LSU vs Auburn Spread 2020

Sitting months away from the 55th all-time meeting between these two football programs, LSU has already opened as a 1-point favorite to beat Auburn on the road in Week 12 at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

LSU lost an NCAA-record-tying amount of talent to the 2020 NFL Draft, including their star QB and 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow. The Auburn Tigers, on the other hand, return a ton of younger talent from a year ago, including star freshman (now rising true sophomore) QB Bo Nix.

There's still plenty of time for things to change between now and this 2020 rivalry kickoff, but the Tigers remain early favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes we may see, Auburn is currently set to host LSU at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020.
