Auburn hopes home cooking will help lead to an upset over LSU

Auburn Football

The home team is 14-2 SU in the last 16 games between the Auburn Tigers and the LSU Tigers. Auburn hopes to keep that trend going this Saturday at home against LSU.

SHARK BITES
  • Auburn is 0-9 ATS in its last nine games after losing as a favorite.
  • LSU is 9-1 SU in its last 10 games in Week 4.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of LSU's last seven games.

Auburn is 19-7 SU in its last 26 home games overall, but the team's current home stretch of 6-7 SU and 2-10-1 ATS is much less impressive. In the team's last four games as a home underdog, the Tigers are 0-4 SU and 1-2-1 ATS.

After sitting out of LSU's 34-13 win over Jacksonville State, Leonard Fournette returned to help lead the team to a 23-20 win against Mississippi State last week with 147 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. Fournette was slightly less effective on the road than he was at home last season, averaging 5.9 yards per carry away from Death Valley compared to 6.9 yards per carry at home.
