We are back with another College Football edition of CLE's Totals. We are coming off a win last Saturday with our TCU v WVU over which brings our record to 2-1 on these plays. Let's keep it rolling this week as we head down to Death Valley for a huge SEC showdown between LSU and Alabama.
LSU comes into this one ranked 10th in the 1st CFB Playoff rankings with a 6-2 record overall, while being in a 3 way tie for 1st in the SEC West with a 4-1 record. They are coming off a much deserved bye week following a 45-20 win over a, then undefeated, Ole Miss team. Bama comes into this one ranked 6th in the 1st CFB Playoff rankings with a 7-1 record overall and part of that 3 way tie for 1st in the SEC West with the same 4-1 record. They are also coming off a bye week following a 30-6 beatdown of Mississippi St. two weeks ago.
We should see a lot of offense here Saturday night. We all know what Bryce Young and the Alabama offense can do, ranking 18th in the nation in yards per game (485.1 YPG) while also ranking 4th in the nation in points per game averaging 43.1. LSU has improved immensely offensively this year, scoring 40+ points in their last two games vs. quality opponents in Florida and Ole Miss. They rank in the top 35 in yards per game (over 450 YPG) while ranking 28th in the nation in points per game averaging 35.1. Do I think this game turns into the crazy shootout like the 2019 version? No, but I believe plenty of points will be scored in this highly anticipated matchup.
The Play: LSU v Alabama o56.5 (-110)
