The Sam Houston State Bearkats have gotten absolutely destroyed when they've played any team worth mentioning this season, and they've failed to cover each of their last eight games. The LSU Tigers are one of the better offensive teams in the country at the moment, and they've done a decent job of making things tough defensively. There could be a lack of motivation with this being a subpar opponent and it being an early Monday game, but it's LSU and the points or pass. Sam Houston State is a bad basketball team.
