Texas A&M vs LSU Prediction

LSU is coming into this game as a 6.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. LSU has just 1 game left on the season and they need to win it to become a bowl eligible team. This will be the last game that Ed Orgeron ever coaches for LSU at home and if they lose it will be the last game he coaches for them ever. There is too much on the line here for LSU not to give their best performance here at home and they will likely play this game with a lot of heart and a lot of passion for their coach to try and give him one last bowl game as well. The best bet to place in this game is on LSU to cover the spread as they will be a tough team to beat on Saturday and will keep the game close at least and possibly even win SU.
