Stephen Nover Free Saturday CBB Play
LSU vs. Georgia,
02/16/2019 18:00 EDT
Point Spread: +8½/-115 Georgia
I really like LSU coach Will Wade. I'm not nearly such a fan of Georgia coach Tom Crean. Having said that, though, I'm going to be backing the Bulldogs catching the Tigers in a monster letdown spot.
The Tigers had their biggest comeback of the season this past Tuesday - and it came on the road against fifth-ranked Kentucky. The Tigers pulled out the victory on a tip-in at the buzzer.
Now, though, LSU has to go back on the road against desperate Georgia and cover nearly a double-digit spread. I don't see it. The Tigers are good, but they've also been fortunate. They've won three overtime SEC games and five of their past six games have been determined by six points or less.
The Bulldogs have lost five in a row. The last time, though, the Bulldogs were this big of a 'dog was six games ago. That was at LSU. Georgia was plus 10 1/2 and covered losing, 82-72. The Bulldogs scored 44 points in the paint. Their front line, featuring star big man, Nicolas Claxton, more than held their own.
Now Georgia is getting nearly this many points at home while catching LSU in a tough situational spot. The Bulldogs are 6-1-1 ATS the past eight times against the Tigers.
