LSU is a 1-point favorite and the total is set at 139.5. It is surprising to see LSU only as a 1-point favorite at home here. LSU has arguably been the better team this season and with the home crowd behind it, I think the Tigers find a strong conference victory. It is going to take a lot to stop Oscar Tshibwe on the glass, but I think LSU has enough answers athlete-wise to compete.
