LSU bounced back from its first loss of the year by tallying a 63-7 win over New Mexico State as 43-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for a second consecutive contest.  The Tigers extended the nation’s longest regular-season non-conference winning streak to 49 straight games, which is important to consider when making your Week 6 college football betting picks.  It’s important to point out that the visiting team has won 12 of the last 14 meetings in this particular series.  LSU is 1-4 ATS in its last five Southeastern Conference affairs.

The Tigers’ offense has had 21 of their 26 touchdowns scored by either freshmen or sophomores this season, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page.  LSU got a major performance out of first-year running back Leonard Fournette against the Aggies—rushing for 122 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns.

Auburn is 4-0 SU and 2-2 ATS through four contests this season, as it comes off a 45-17 victory over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs as 32.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while winning the statistical battle in each of those affairs.  The Tigers have dropped six of their last seven meetings in this series, including a 35-21 defeat as 17-point road underdogs last year, but it was only out-gained by 20 yards in that matchup.  Auburn is 9-0 ATS in its last nine conference games.

The Tigers own a 13-game winning streak at Jordan-Hare Stadium dating back to their home finale of 2012, as they look to put up 30 or more points in this contest, considering they’ve compiled a 308-5 SU all-time record when doing so.  Auburn is becoming more balanced offensively due to Nick Marshall’s improvement in the passing game, as he threw a career-high three touchdown passes last week.  Marshall is a dynamic playmaker and has four career games with 100-plus yards rushing and 100-plus yards passing in the same contest.

Sports bettors will likely back the Auburn Tigers due to the home team covering the number in four of the last five installments in this rivalry.
