Alabama at LSU 2010 College Football Picks: Alabama, the highest ranked team in the BCS Standings at No. 6, travels to play 10 LSU at Death Valley down in Baton Rouge on Saturday (3:30 pm ET, CBS). The Crimson Tide still have a solid chance of representing the SEC Western Division in the SEC title game if they win their remaining conference games, which includes a home date with No. 2 Auburn in the Iron Bowl, Fri. Nov. 26.
BetUS lists Alabama as a 7-chalk road favorite versus LSU on the BetUS.com college football board with a 45 total. LSU backers are getting +230 odds on the BetUS moneyline while Alabama is giving -270.
Both Alabama and LSU have one conference loss this season and either one, with a little help, could find itself in the SEC Championship game. Alabama controls its own destiny as they get to play SEC West leader Auburn head to head later in the month.
The Crimson Tide are coming off a 41-10 road win at Tennessee in Week-9. Alabama covered the betting spread as a 17-chalk favorite while the 51 combined game points went over the posted 47 total. Bama ended a two game ATS skid with the 31-point win. Overall, Alabama is 5-3 ATS on the season while the total has also gone UNDER in 5-of-8 games.
LSU is coming off a 17-24 loss at Auburn last week, for their only SU blemish this season. The Tigers haven't been great for backers covering the betting line going 3-4 ATS this campaign.
Reno Gold's pick: I think betting the UNDER, on the 45 total is the best play. Both teams play good defense and those defenses will dominate this game.
