Blitzalytics Analysis


Line LSU (-13.5) Over/Under 75 Against the Spread - Oklahoma (5-8) LSU (8-5)


LSU has steam-rolled pretty much everyone in their path, including a 37-10 demolition of Georgia in the SEC Championship game. Oklahoma snuck into the playoff after Georgia’s loss. They needed overtime to defeat Baylor for the BIG-12 Championship. This game will be the story of the two quarterbacks. Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, may have solidified his status as the #1 pick with an almost 80% completion rate and a 44-6 ratio. Jalen Hurts has been the Oklahoma offense, accounting for 4,900 yards of offense and 50 touchdowns. The defenses will be under constant pressure, although LSU’s defense seems to be peaking at the right time with two consecutive good outings versus Georgia and Texas A&M.


The Degenerate Menace Says: It is really tough to see Oklahoma’s defense being able to hold the Bayou Bengals to less than 35 points. While LSU’s defense has been playing better, they too will struggle to hold Oklahoma’s offense down. However, Oklahoma’s propensity to turn the ball over more will be the difference in the game.


Prediction: LSU 45 - Oklahoma 24
