LSU had a tense matchup versus Florida State in their opener, ultimately falling 24-23 in a tough result. The Tigers were able to get their first win in week two 65-17 over Southern, and another victory came the next weekend with a 31-16 result over Mississippi State. 

In the New Mexico matchup, LSU scored in every quarter and cruised to an eventual 38-0 shutout win. QB Jayden Daniels finished with 279 yards on 24-of-29 passing. Noah Cain was the top rusher with his 94 yards and two scores off 11 carries. 

Over on the Auburn side, they blew out Mercer in their 2022 opener by a score of 42-16. The Tigers had a tougher time versus San Jose State but still escaped 24-16. Auburn would take their first loss in week three versus Penn State with a 41-12 blowout result. 

Back on Saturday versus Missouri, Auburn blew an early 14-0 lead but eventually held on for the 17-14 overtime victory. Quarterback Robby Ashford managed 127 yards passing and also led the rush with 46 yards and a score from 15 carries. 

LSU is 3-0-1 ATS in their last four conference games and 4-0 ATS in their last four on grass. LSU is 5-2-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. 

Meanwhile, Auburn is 5-1 ATS in their last six in October and 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games. Auburn is 0-5 ATS in their last five overall. 

PICK: I’m probably staying with LSU. The Tigers put on a clinic in the New Mexico game, bagging 633 total yards (414 passing), 7.9 yards per play and 28 first downs. LSU held the Lobos to just 88 total yards and two first downs on the other side. The Tigers have been rolling over the last three games. 

As for Auburn, they posted just 217 total yards with 3.3 yards per play against a tricky Missouri team in their overtime win. The Tigers have just 26 combined points over the last two weeks, and they’ve only scored more than 24 points once this year. I don’t think they’ve got the firepower to cover in this one, but it should be an interesting matchup. 

Andrew's Free Pick:
LSU Tigers -6.5
