LSU vs TCU betting preview, pick
LSU is supposedly rebuilding, but is there any doubt the Tigers still have more talent than TCU?
The Tigers return roughly 12 starters, including senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger. Top tailback Jeremy Hill is a question mark for the Tigers, his status undetermined due to an off-field arrest.
TCU gets senior quarterback Casey Pachall back. Pachall missed all of last season, while working through personal issues related to drug and alcohol abuse.
He’ll bolster an offense that returns seven starters. The Horned Frogs are just 1-8-1 ATS in the last two seasons in non-conference play and opened as small 4-point road favorites.
LSU is an impressive 10-1 SU in their past games 11 as a road favorite (-4.5 at Bovada).
