I will win 10 units because of it
I usually play 1-5 units on a game. But, since this is the last game of the year, and the hype all on Bama, I will win 10 units with the best team in college football.
I dont like the idea of a rematch game. LSU already won IN BAMA...which is a much better win than on a neutral field with 5+ weeks of prep. But, it wont matter anyways, LSU is on a mission.
I think its hard to say which teams are the best of all time. But, when LSU wins tomorrow night, I think they have a claim for it. This will be the 4th top #4 team they beat this year. Already beating #4, #1, #3 and now #2. I am pretty sure no college team has that on their resume.
LSU is an ATS coering machine. They are 10-3 ATS this year. The only 3 covers they didnt have were again NWST in which they missed by 3, Kentucky they missed by 1.5 and W Kentucky they missed by 9. A combined 13.5 for the 3 games they didnt cover. All 3 games in which they had no motivation for what so ever, and were 28+ point favorites in all 3.
Moving on the my breakdown of the game.
Its funny to see all the BAMA fans "claim" they "DOMINATED" the 1st game.
I am not sure why they claim this. Bama gained 56 more yards that game. That isnt domination.
The 18 yd line is the closest that Bama got all game long. That isnt domination.
LSU got inside the 15 yard line 3 times and inside the 10 2 times.
So, red-zone possessions were LSU-3 and Bama-1. I dont see the Bama domination there.
Yeah, people say Bama missed 4 field goals. But, they were 44, 49, 50 and 52 yards. Not exactly chip shots for NFL kickers, let alone college kickers.
The biggest play Bama had was a screen pass on 3rd down to Richardson.
Richardson had 89 yds with only 3.9 yds per carry. His longest run was 24 yards, so besides that he had 2.9 yds per carry. Not exactly domination.
One thing I think Bama fans forget is that LEE threw 2 awful picks that allowed Bama to start on the Bama 47 and LSU 35. Lee will not see the field tomorrow night.
This is a WAY better LSU team that played in Bama and won. With Jefferson behind center, the offense is 1000% better. The special teams in so dangerous.
So, in Bamas eyes, they dominated game 1. But, I just dont understand how they keep saying that. If you have 1 red-zone possession all game to the 18 yard-line, that is NOT DOMINATING ANYTHING!!!
LSU will be 11-3 ATS after tomorrow night, and be in the debate for one of the best college teams of all time
Bring home those 10 units
