LSU is 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games and 4-17 ATS in their last 21 Saturday games. The over is 4-0 in LSU’s last 4 games. Florida is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 7-1 in Florida’s last 8 games. The road team is 7-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.
LSU has been horrible this season and they only have two conference wins on the year. Florida is missing their leading scorer and has lost three of their last four games, but they did beat Georgia in their last game. LSU is only shooting 41.5% from the field and will be on the road for this game. Florida is the better team in just about every metric, but the absence of Castleton is huge. I like LSU with the points in this one.
