Miller: How I’m Betting LSU-Miss. State

LSU is in a really though sandwich spot this week after a big home win against Florida and with Auburn on deck. Mississippi State is in a tough spot every single week that they take the field these days thanks to a bad defense and anemic offense.

In this matchup in particular, LSU has a massive advantage when it drops back to pass. The Bulldogs’ defense ranks 78th in opponents QB rating so Joe Burrow should have a field day.

The new LSU offense passes the ball more than almost anyone in the country and when they do, they’re very explosive, ranking No. 7 overall in percentage of explosive pass plays.Mississippi State’s defense is dead last in the nation in allowing explosive pass plays.

It’s going to be a really rough day in Starkville for the home team but look for LSU to take out their starters and run the ball in the second half in preparation for their matchup with Auburn.

When LSU is at full throttle in the first half, Mississippi State has no shot of slowing down its passing game.

Pick: LSU 1H -10.5
