The Auburn Tigers have won their first three games of the 2013 campaign, but they'll prepare to dress up as underdogs for the first time under head coach Gus Malzahn on Saturday.
College football handicappers will find that Auburn has won 16 of its last 17 road openers in conference play.
The LSU Tigers have outscored their first three opponents by a 138-57 margin, with quarterback Zach Mettenberger throwing for nine touchdown passes.
Over the last two-plus seasons, LSU is 9-0 straight up and 6-3 against the spread as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points, with the OVER going 6-2-1 in that situation.
I'm going to recommend that readers play the total, as the UNDER is 4-0 in the LSU Tigers' last four conference openers.
