2019 LSU V. Alabama College Football Free Betting Total
The most anticipated college football game through the first 10 weeks of the 2019 season takes place on Saturday and LSU visits Tuscaloosa to take on Alabama. With both teams sitting at 8-0 the winner will undoubtedly be ranked number 1 in the College Football Playoff Poll and will have the inside track to get into the playoff. The story to the leadup to this game is who will not be there. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is a game-time decision and is expected to play but no one knows if he will be at 100 percent or not. On the LSU side, the defense will be missing their best pass rusher Michael Divinity has left the team for personal reasons and their secondary is banged up.
For this free pick, I’m going after the total of 63. This total is kind of ridiculous if you ask me. 63 points is way too high for this matchup. Long gone are the days of 2011 when these teams last played both undefeated when neither team scored a touchdown. They have arguably the two best quarterbacks in the nation and talented skill players all across the field. That being said there is no way this game will be a shootout to warrant betting the Over 63. Tua will not be himself and won’t be able to get out of the pocket as he used to therefore he will susceptible to more sacks, hits and pressures. This will take away the big play down the field and help LSU’s banged-up secondary to not have to cover as long. On the other side, I love LSU’s offense but they have not played a defense as good as the one they will see on Saturday and they will be playing in the most hostile of environments. The defenses will come to play and keep this game in the 50s. The Pick: Take The Under
