LSU, the nation’s third ranked team, has yet to be tested this season, and it will not be tonight either as it takes the field against the WAC’s Idaho Vandals (8:00pm ET start time, ESPN3). Idaho vs LSU Odds see the Tigers producing another double digit victory as they are presently listed as a -42.5 against the spread home favorite. This evening’s game total is set at 54.5 points.
LSU demolished North Texas 41-14 in its opener at Tiger Stadium, taking care of its first scheduling cupcake, but it moved onto a bigger brand last weekend in the Washington Huskies.
No offense to Washington and its solid football tradition, but the Huskies represented about as much of a challenge (maybe even less so) to LSU as the Mean Green did. The Tigers upended Steve Sarkisian’s over-matched squad 41-3 in Baton Rouge to improve to 2-0 on the season.
LSU registered 437 yards in the win while holding Washington to 12 first downs, 183 total yards, and 26 rush yards.
The Tigers steady diet of sweets should continue tonight with an Idaho team that lost to FCS school Eastern Washington in its opener and to Bowling Green last weekend. Simply put, this score will get as ugly as LSU Head Coach Les Miles wants it to.
Free Pick: Lean to LSU at -42.5, but the Over 54.5 looks better.
Idaho vs LSU Odds:
Idaho Vandals +42.5 (-110), Over 54.5 (-110)
LSU Tigers -42.5 (-110), Under 54.5 (-110)
