LSU will take its perfect 4-0 record on the road for its biggest test of the season to date, as it has outscored its first four opponents by a 173-88 margin, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks. The Tigers have won 34 straight games when reaching 30 or more points, while they’ve managed to win their last 29 contests in September. LSU is 1-2 SU and 0-3 ATS when the betting line is between +3 to -3 the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 2-1 in that situation.
The Tigers have recorded 400-plus yards of total offense in each of the first four games of a season for the first time in school history, while quarterback Zach Mettenberger is now 14-3 during his time on campus. LSU is 16-12-1 all-time against Georgia, including a 2-2 mark during the Les Miles’ era. The program has compiled a dominating 50-19 record against SEC opponents under Miles, including an 18-8 mark versus teams hailing from the Eastern Division.
Georgia has won its last 14 home games at Sanford Stadium, which ranks as the third-longest home winning streak in school history, which also happens to be the longest such active streak in the conference in that situation. The Bulldogs are attempting to beat two Top-10 teams at this venue in the same season for the first time in school history, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds page. Georgia is 9-2 SU and 5-6 ATS in September since 2011, with the OVER going 10-1 in those 11 opportunities.
The Bulldogs are 31-45-2 all-time against ranked opponents at their current stadium, as they prepare to welcome ESPN’s College GameDay on campus for the first time since 2008. Georgia will need a huge game from senior quarterback Aaron Murray, who became the first player in the SEC to tally three consecutive 3,000-yard passing seasons a year ago. Murray has thrown 81 touchdowns and just 17 interceptions in his 30 wins as a starter for the program.
Sports bettors will likely play the total in this affair, as the OVER is 5-1 in the last six meetings.
