LSU lost to Florida as the offense was completely shutdown in the second half. The Tigers come limping home after suffering their very first loss of the season. They have no time to wallow in grief as they have to get ready for the top-ranked Gamecocks led by coach Steve Spurrier.
The Gamecocks trounced the Georgia Bulldogs and the impressive win propelled South Carolina in the rankings and has fans thinking National Championship. Marcus Lattimore is the anchor of the offense for South Carolina and will attempt to run the rock against a stout LSU defense. If Lattimore is ineffective the Gamecocks will look to quarterback Connor Shaw to try and win the game. Shaw is a great game manager but he will have to make quick decisions to avoid the pressure from the Tiger’s aggressive defensive approach.
The Tigers need a better output from the offensive if they want to win this game. Zach Mettenberger is an upgrade at quarterback from a year ago, but he has still struggled this season. The Tigers have a good enough running game to set up the play-action.
The Tigers are 11-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 13 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game, 9-4 ATS when playing a team with a winning record, and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games.
LSU is a much better team at home and in the frenzied atmosphere of Death Valley the Tigers will get the big win over South Carolina.
