Vanderbilt is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, 0-4 against the spread in their last four Saturday games, and 6-13 against the spread in their last 19 home games against a team with a winning record. LSU is 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games, 7-3-2 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 3-7-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. The road team has covered the point spread in six of the last eight meetings of these two.
The total is set at 138 and it should go soaring past that number so my free pick is Over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
