LSU Doesn’t Lose Back-To-Back Games In Death Valley

LSU’s last appearance in front of its home crowd saw the Tigers drop a tough 10-0 decision to Alabama and though that may have been a bitter pill to swallow, they may be in a good spot this week when they host the Florida Gators. The Tigers have not lost two home games in a row since 2002, winning their past 13 games in Death Valley following a loss in their previous home outing.

SHARK BITES

  • The visiting team is 1-4 SU and ATS in the last 5 games between Florida and LSU.
  • The UNDER has gone 7-1-1 in LSU’s nine games this season.

Since Ed Orgeron took over for the departed Les Miles, the Tigers have been near unstoppable, as they are 4-1 SU and ATS in their past five outings. LSU has averaged 32.6 points per game while holding opponents to 11.6 points in their past five games.

Florida has been dealing with more than its fair share of injuries, having lost multiple starters on both sides of the ball over the past few weeks. The Gators have leaned on their defense, as they have held opponents to 14 points or less in seven of their nine games.
