Can Alabama Continue its Dominance Of LSU?

The rivalry between Alabama and LSU has been one-sided of late, with the Crimson Tide winning the past five meetings between the two teams. Alabama’s venerated defense has held LSU to an average of just 12.6 points per game in those five outings. The Tide will look to extend their longest series winning streak since winning 11 consecutive in the 1970s through the early ’80s when they travel to Death Valley on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 games between Alabama and LSU.
  • The UNDER is 7-0 in LSU’s past 7 games within the SEC.
  • Alabama is 9-0 SU in its last 9 road games against teams with winning records.

’Bama is simply the best team in the country and you need look no further than its record against ranked opponents. The Tide have won 12 consecutive games against ranked opponents while going 10-2 ATS in those outings. This season alone, Alabama has outscored ranked opponents 231-103.

LSU has been a different team since firing Les Miles and promoting Ed Orgeron to the role. The Tigers have gone 3-0 SU and ATS while averaging 41.7 points per game under Orgeron. It will be imperative that LSU gets Leonard Fournette going after the running back was held to 31 yards on 19 carries against Alabama last season, which effectively ended his Heisman bid.
