#6 Alabama Crimson Tide at #10 LSU Tigers

Line: Alabama -6

LSU is the most overrated team in the nation in my opinion. They lost two weeks ago for the first time at Auburn 24-17. They did have an extra week to prepare this week, so expect them to come out ready to play. Alabama could be considered the most underrated team. They have went out and beat ranked teams this week more convincingly than LSU has. Alabama also had an extra week to prepare for this one.

Stats to consider:

Alabama Crimson Tide:

  • Alabama is 7-1 with a 4-1 SEC record.
  • They are 3-1 on the road this season.
  • Points against per game: 12.5 (2nd)
  • Points for per game: 34.3 (24th)
  • Passing yards a game: 253.9 (36th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 186.9 (30th)

LSU Tigers:

  • LSU is 7-1 this season with a 4-1 SEC record.
  • They are 5-0 at home this season.
  • Points against per game: 15.6 (10th)
  • Points for per game: 25.5 (73rd)
  • Passing yards a game: 138.8 (113th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 179.1 (34th)

What to watch for:

  • The Alabama running game: Trent Richardson and Mark Ingram. Richardson has 606 yards and 5 TDs while averaging 7 yards a carry. Ingram has 544 yards with 8 TDs while averaging 6.4 yards a carry.
  • Alabama Senior QB Greg McElroy has 1,781 yards 11 TDs and only 3 Ints. His favorite target has been Junior WR Julio Jones who has 669 yards and 3 TDs. He had an extra week to heal up his hurt hand.
  • Both defenses come in ranked inside the top 10 in points against. LSU is ranked at 10 while Alabama is 2.
  • The one thing you know what your going to get from LSU is Junior RB Stevan Ridley who has 723 yards and 6 TDs.
  • The one thing LSU isn’t so sure about is their QB play. Junior QB Jordan Jefferson started the season as the starter and has continued to start, but has been relieved by Junior QB Jarrett Lee the last four weeks.

With a sports pick, I look for overall consistency. LSU has shown no consistency throwing the football at all this season. Alabama will throw the kitchen sink at the LSU offense early and often. Look for Alabama to control this football game from the get go.
