The Pick

LSU -1.5

The spread started out Ole Miss -1, so the money has come in on LSU to win this game. LSU has looked a lot better over the course of the season, and Daniels seems to be in a good rhythm. The offense is averaging 443 yards of total offense this season. At home in a big spot here, Brian Kelly and his family get their first signature win at LSU.
