Word from several online sportsbooks is that the sharps have been betting the Under. There is no word on any sharp action on the side as of this moment.

Tua leads the Tide against LSU this weekend

Tua’s health remains a question mark.

Players

QB Tua Tagovailoa has been listed as questionable for this game. The Heisman candidate has been dealing with injury and missed the last game. But there is little doubt from us that he will be playing.

LSU starting outside LB Michael Divinity quit the team earlier this week. He is leaving for “personal reasons”. He had 23 tackles and 3 sacks for the Tigers this year.

Our Thoughts

The old saying “You got to beat the man to be the man” comes to mind in this game. Alabama has ruled this rivalry. The Tigers are playing great football behind Heisman candidate Joe Burrow and have a stellar defense. But, can they go into Alabama and beat the Tide? I want to say yes. But, when I look at the stats and trends they all point to Alabama. Alabama is a TD better than LSU on a neutral site. Factor in the home field and Alabama should be able to win by a TD or more. We can picture a slug-em-out type of game where Alabama is able to outpace LSU at the very end. Bet this game now at any one of the top ranked sportsbooks.
