Friday, November 26, 2021 at 7:00 pm
LSU Tigers -9
The Penn State Nittany Lions & LSU Tigers will square off at Raider Arena in the Emerald Coast Classic and I think LSU will have no issue winning this won by double-digits.
Penn State comes into this game with a 3-1 record, however, they haven’t faced the toughest of competition to start the season and in their one road game, Penn State got dominated by UMass by an 81-56 margin. Penn State has been nothing more than average on both ends of the court this season and have struggled with turnovers as they come into this matchup ranked just 325th in turnover margin.
The Nittany Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss & 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win & 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.
LSU has been extremely impressive to start their season as they are 5-0 to start the season while winning those game by an average of 34.4 ppg. LSU recently beat Belmont by 30 points and as the Tigers come into this game ranked 25th in scoring offense & 2nd in scoring defense, I think LSU has no trouble winning this one by double-digits and covers this spread. Good Luck!
