The Alabama Crimson Tide need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Alabama Crimson Tide are averaging 83 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 78.9 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Kira Lewis Jr. is averaging 17.1 points and 5.4 rebounds while John Petty Jr. is averaging 15.5 points and 7.2 rebounds. Jaden Shackelford is the third double-digit scorer and Alex Reese is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Alabama Crimson Tide are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The Alabama Crimson Tide are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.3 rebounds per game. The Alabama Crimson Tide have lost their last two home games.

The favorite is 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The home team is 15-7-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings.

The Alabama Crimson Tide are really good at home, and you usually favor the home team in rivalry games where the crowd can make such a difference. The problem is the LSU Tigers are the better team no matter how you slice it, and they already beat Alabama by 24 points a couple of weeks ago. In the victory, LSU shot 51 percent from the field and had five scorers with double-digit points. I wouldn't be shocked if Alabama won this game, but we're getting  free point with the better team. It's always tough to pass that up.
