The Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 conference games. The Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in October. The under is 7-3 in Tigers last 10 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Tigers last 7 games overall. The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Auburn and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
The LSU Tigers should be favored, but this line is a little too thick for my taste, knowing that Auburn can still get after it defensively and Jordan-Hare Stadium is never an easy place to play. Also, while talented and the better team, LSU can be sloppy with the ball at times that would certainly allow a home dog to hang around. We're getting more than a free touchdown with Auburn at home. I'll take my chances.
