LSU was Inconsistent All Season

LSU has been inconsistent all season and at times it has been hard to figure out what team is going to show up. In the SEC Tournament, LSU scored only 60 points against Mississippi State and that led to the 10 point defeat. Trae Hannibal had a strong game putting up 18 points, four rebounds, and one assist. LSU on the season is averaging 76.3 points while their defense is giving up 74.7 points per game. Guard Jordan Wright is averaging 14.8 points while shooting 41.3 percent from the field.

Can North Texas Play Enough Defense?

North Texas has leaned on the defense when they have had success this season, and they are going to need the defense to step up here. In the last game against Florida Atlantic, North Texas scored 71 points, but the defense gave up 77 points. Jason Edwards did have a strong game, putting up 26 points and four rebounds. North Texas is averaging 69.1 points while their defense is giving up 63.1 points per game. Jason Edwards is averaging 19.1 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field.

LSU vs North Texas Betting Prediction

North Texas needs good defense to find success, but I don’t trust their defense here. LSU on the season is averaging 76.3 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. North Texas is averaging only 69.1 points, and they aren’t going to have the offense to keep this game close. LSU is going to pull away, and they will get the job done here. Back LSU against the spread.
