BookMaker has the Alabama Crimson Tide listed as 3-point favorites at home against the LSU Tigers on Saturday night in week 10 of the college football season. Alabama has won eight of the last ten and two of the last three meetings in the series. The Crimson Tide are 5-4-1 ATS in the last ten while the Tigers are 2-1 ATS in the last three matchups. The LSU Tigers are 5-3 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS on the road, and 3-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Alabama Crimson Tide are 5-3 ATS overall, 3-2 ATS at home, 5-3 ATS as a favorite, and 4-1 ATS in conference games on the year.
If Alabama wins this game they will likely be going to the SEC Championship game as this is their toughest opponent left this season and they have dominated the series, winning eight of the last ten and two of the last three games. The Crimson Tide have also been one of the best teams at covering the spread in their conference games going 4-1 ATS in conference play which is why I am laying the points when the Alabama Crimson Tide host the LSU Tigers on Saturday night.
