The Tide amasses 485.4 yards each game. Young’s stats this season, 1,906 passing yards and 18 TD passes, aren’t as good as they were last season, but the Tide is a much better rushing team in 2022 than they were in 2021. Last season, the Tide averaged 147.8 rushing yards per game. This season, Alabama is averaging 211 rushing yards each contest.
Bama’s D gives up yards, 295.6 per game. To be fair, the Crimson Tide got into a shootout with the Tennessee Volunteers, a game Bama lost 52-49.

Take away the 52 Alabama allowed to Tennessee and the average drops to 11.6 each contest.

Alabama vs. LSU Expert Betting Predictions
LSU has played great football in their last couple of games. So much so that the CFP Selection Committee ranks them in the top ten in the first official College Football Playoff Rankings. The top ten ranking looks good on paper, but Louisiana State should fall out of the top ten, maybe even out of the top fifteen, after Saturday.
LSU faces one of the best teams in college football. Bama had a chance to beat Tennessee in Knoxville but their defense tired late in the fourth. If not for that game, the Tide would be the CFP’s top team.
Jayden Daniels is playing well but Alabama has enough speed on defense to contain Daniels’ rushing ability. LSU’s defense gave up 35 points to Florida. So Young and his mates should have no trouble scoring points. Also, Alabama is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings at LSU. The Tide rolls to a win and cover.
