Saturday morning reports tell us that online sportsbooks will be wearing purple and gold today as they pull for the LSU Tigers +6.5 as they host Auburn this afternoon.

<p>It's interesting to note that the lookahead line that was released this summer had LSU pegged as 7 point favorites for this bout, but losses to Mississippi State and Troy have obviously given sports bettors a reason to question this team's ability to perform consistently. </p><p>Given that today's schedule lacks the high profile matchups that we have seen in previous week's, this Auburn-LUS game takes center stage and ultimately is getting most of the attention from bettors as well. Some books are reporting that this game is getting close to double the action than any other game on the schedule and 85% of the early bets are coming in on Auburn.</p><p>Unless there is a late surge of sharp money on LSU closer to kickoff, you can bet that your bookie will be praying that the boys from Baton Rouge walk away with the cover this afternoon. </p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/college-football/battle-of-tigers-in-baton-rouge-will-go-to-visiting-auburn/81945"><em>Get out Auburn vs LSU Picks &amp; Predictions Here</em></a><br />[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3187733, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,93,169,1275,19], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p>
