Texas A&M vs. LSU Expert Betting Predictions
On paper, Texas A&M should spank LSU. But there is an intangible on LSU’s side that could lead to an outright victory. Saturday is Ed Orgeron’s final regular season game as LSU’s head coach. In 2019, Orgeron attracted Joe Burrow from Ohio State and together with offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi led the Tigers to one of the most amazing National Championship marches in college football history.
Two seasons later, Orgeron is out the door. Based on all accounts, LSU players love Coach O, which means they’re going to lay it all on the line to send their coach off the field at Tiger Stadium with a victory.
Emotion can mean a lot in a rivarly game. All the emotion belongs to LSU. To make things more difficult for Texas A&M, the Tigers have enough talent to keep this close, and A&M has lost 2 of its last 3 road games straight up.
