LSU and TCU meet in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers have been filling pockets all season. Their 14-6 record against the spread is the second-best clip in the conference.

The Horned Frogs, meanwhile, covered just one of their first eight games to start the season. However, they’ve rattled off eight wins against the number over their previous 10, a span featuring upset wins over Iowa State and Kansas State.

*Odds as of Saturday morning

LSU’s defense is the stingiest in the country, ranking No. 1 in field goal percentage allowed (35.9%) this season. The Tigers have absurdly held 12 of their 20 opponents to 60 points or fewer.

Due to the defensive tenacity, LSU has gone under the total at the seventh-best mark in the nation for teams with at least 15 games.

TCU, meanwhile, is the top “under” team in the Big 12, cashing nine of 15 contests.

Overall, the two programs are a combined 23-12-2 to the under in 2021-22.

The total for this matchup opened 123.5 but has since ticked up in the 126 range.

Best LSU Odds: -2.5 (-110) (BetMGM)
Best TCU Odds: +3 (-107) (SugarHouse)
Best Over Odds: Over 126 -(107) (SugarHouse)
Best Under Odds: Under 126 (-110) (DraftKings)
