The Auburn Tigers and LSU Tigers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The Auburn Tigers look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Auburn Tigers are averaging 83.9 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 68.2 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Bryce Brown is averaging 17 points and 2.2 rebounds while Jared Harper is averaging 15.2 points and 6.3 assists. Chuma Okeke is the third double-digit scorer and Austin Wiley is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Auburn Tigers are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free throw line. The Auburn Tigers are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.5 rebounds per game. The Auburn Tigers have lost four of their last five road games.

The LSU Tigers look to stay hot after winning 13 of their last 15 games. The LSU Tigers are averaging 83.4 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 73.2 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Tremont Waters is averaging 15.6 points and 3.2 rebounds while Naz Reid is averaging 13.9 points and six rebounds. Skylar Mays is the third double-digit scorer and Ja'vonte Smart is dishing 2.3 assists. The LSU Tigers are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free throw line. The LSU Tigers are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game. The LSU Tigers have won 10 of their last 11 home games.

TheTigers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Southeastern and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Tigers are 11-0 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Louisiana State and 20-8 ATS in the last 28 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Tigers last 6 overall. The over is 6-2 in Tigers last 8 overall.

The Auburn Tigers have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the LSU Tigers, but this is an inconsistent basketball team and hasn't been good at all on the road. LSU hasn't only won 13 of its last 15 games, but it's winning by an average of 15.4 points while shooting 49.8 percent from the field at home this season. We have two teams heading in different directions, and we only have to lay a bucket. I'll gladly take the LSU Tigers and the small chalk. 

Pick:
LSU -1.5
