Point Total: 63.5
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
LSU hasn’t been able to play since Halloween, and Arkansas has been able to fight through its issues to get on the field over the last few weeks.
Both defenses are meh, both offenses are fun against fellow meh teams, and meh + meh in this case equals what should be a screaming shootout.
LSU was able to hold down Vanderbilt. That was about it, and in the one other game it didn’t give up a bazillion points was a 52-24 win over South Carolina.
The 11 points against Auburn were alarmingly low, but even in that game the total got to 59.
Arkansas played a good defensive battle in the 24-13 win over Tennessee, and the Mississippi State and Georgia games were held to under 40 each, but the offense was able together to 31 points in three of the last four games. LSU scored 34 or more against everyone but AU.
If these two can just be what they usually are, the total should flirt with 70 and you should be just fine.
This would easily be the pick of the week, but there’s an all-timer of a point total game that is a once-in-a-generation opportunity …
