The LSU Tigers are 8-2 SU in November since 2011

Arkansas hits the road for its final game of the 2013 campaign, as it tries to snap an eight-game losing streak, which includes a 24-17 overtime defeat to the Mississippi State Bulldogs as 2.5-point home underdogs last Saturday.  The Razorbacks will be playing their fifth top-15 team, which ties the regular season school record and simply can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page.  Underclassmen have made 88 starts this season for the program, with true freshmen accounting for 25.  Arkansas is 3-9 SU and 2-10 ATS on the road the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 9-3 in that situation.

The Razorbacks have rushed for at least 200 yards in seven of 11 games this season, including 225 versus the Bulldogs.  Arkansas first-year head coach Bret Bielema is 10-2 SU in regular season rivalry trophy games, but this is his first such experience in the Southeastern Conference.  Offensively, the team has allowed just seven sacks through 11 games, which is the lowest total in the SEC and tied for the second-lowest mark in the country.

LSU has alternated wins and losses over its last five games, as it comes off a 34-10 victory over the Texas A&M Aggies as 3.5-point home favorites in Week 13, while going UNDER the betting total of 75.  The Tigers are 36-20-2 overall in this series, including a 10-2-1 mark in games played in Baton Rouge.  The team comes in averaging 37.5 points and 465.5 total yards per game, with quarterback Zach Mettenberger throwing for 2,926 yards and 22 touchdowns.  LSU is 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS in November since 2011, with the UNDER going 5-4-1 in that situation.

The Tigers lead the nation in third-down conversion percentage, while they’ve won 30 of their last 31 games in Tiger Stadium dating back to the 2009 season.  LSU leads the nation for the longest streak of seasons with at least eight wins at 14 in a row.  It’s important to point out that the squad is currently occupying the No. 17 spot in the BCS standings.

Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to their 5-1 ATS mark in their last six meetings.
