The opening spread for this game is set at -2-points, favoring Florida. The Gators are 3-2 ATS this season and have won both of their games played at home. The Tigers are 3-4 ATS this season, although are winners in six of their last seven SU.

Despite this early success for Will Wade's club, LSU is still searching for its first road win this year (not counting a neutral court game vs. SIU-Edwardsville).

Betting Analysis – LSU Tigers

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 6-1
  • ATS: 3-4
  • SU - Home: 6-0
  • SU - Away: 0-1
  • O/U: 3-3-1

LSU is a dangerous team with almost no recognition of being one. The Tigers average a scary 86.9 points per game, which quietly ranks 17th nationally. The Tigers also hold the sixth-most efficient offense in the country with a 121.6 rating.

The fewest amount of points LSU has scored is 77, which occurred in its last game against Texas A&M. LSU has seen 81 or more points in all six games prior, which begins with Cameron Thomas. Thomas averages 24 points per game, one of the country's best scorers. This team is loaded with talent outside Thomas though, seeing four players average 13.5 points or more per game.

Darius Days leads the team in rebounds, with 8.6 per game and will be key in winning the glass battle against Florida. To be honest, winning the glass game might not matter with the amount of ways LSU can score.

LSU ranks 15th nationally in overall field goal percentage (51%), 11th nationally in two-point percentage (62%), 80th nationally in three-point percentage (37%), 16th nationally in free throw percentage (78%) and 17th nationally in total points scored per game. There isn't an area from the court in which LSU can't score points from.
