Auburn vs. LSU: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet

The Auburn Tigers are going for their ninth straight win on Saturday and they will be doing so as heavy favorites. BetMGM favors Auburn by 13.5 points ahead of their matchup with LSU in Neville Arena.

Both teams are coming into the game with plenty of momentum after starting conference play 2-0. LSU (10-5) has won its last five games, including a 15-point win at Texas A&M to open SEC play.

Auburn (13-2), is also fresh off a double-digit win over the Aggies, beating them by 11 on Tuesday night. Auburn has won the last two meetings between the Tigers, with both wins coming by at least 15 points.

Here is everything you need to know about the matchup before placing any bets.

Advice and Prediction

It is a massive spread at 13.5 points but Auburn is playing great basketball right now and LSU has only played two true road games this season. A packed and fired up Neville Arena should impact the visiting Tigers and give Auburn a boost.

After having a tough shooting night on Tuesday, I’m expecting Auburn to bounce back with a strong performance and pick up the victory, covering the spread in the process.

Best Bet: Auburn -13.5
