LSU vs Texas: What the Experts Say About the Tigers Chances
In what is billed as one of the best games, not only of September, but of the entire college football season, the 6th ranked LSU Tigers take on the #9 Texas Longhorns in Austin Saturday evening.
But to many, the question isn't only whether the Bengals can take down the 'Horns, but if Coach O's boys can, as the gamblers say, "cover the spread."
If recent past is prologue, the Tigers may take take down Coach Tom Herman's team, but "covering" may be another story altogether.
"The No. 6 LSU Tigers went 5-0 straight up and 3-2 against the spread last season in the month of September. The Tigers will try to extend their September winning streak to six games on Saturday night when they visit the No. 9 Texas Longhorns.
LSU is a 6.5-point road favorite on the college football odds in Austin... and steady betting action on the Tigers has moved this line from its opener of LSU -3 all the way down to LSU at -6.5."
LSU an Texas kickoff Saturday evening at UT's Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium at 6:30. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
