Gardner-Webb Bulldogs vs LSU Tigers NCAAB Betting Game Preview

The Tigers are pretty big SU favorites, which may mean looking elsewhere for value. The Tigers have not been good ATS this season, which might make the Bulldogs. Your other option is to go with the OVER/UNDER.

Why bet on the Gardner-Webb Bulldogs

Gardner-Webb (4-6) came out of a layoff with a very solid 73-53 win over Furman on Saturday night. As nice as that win was, it was only their second road win in 7 attempts this season. The Bulldogs have only had 1 game on the betting board this season, and they failed to cover in that one. That single game did hit on the OVER, though, which may well be your best bet here if you are looking to put some money on the Bulldogs. They are 4th in the Big South Conference right now, and are probably keen to get to conference play so that they can get a few more wins under their belt.

The Bulldogs will face LSU.

Why bet on the LSU Tigers

The Tigers (4-4) got their season off to a perfect start by winning their opening 3 games, but they have struggled since then, going just 1-4. All of their wins have come on home court, so they certainly have that in their favor heading into this match-up. The Tigers have not been very effective ATS this season, and are a pretty miserable 0-6 ATS so far, which makes them a much better straight up bet here. 4 of their 6 games have gone OVER this season, but 3 of those OVER results have come on the road. This is a game that the Tigers will almost certainly win, but deciding which way to go on this one is not as straightforward as it may appear.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

This should be a pretty comfortable win for the LSU Tigers, but there are certainly doubts as to whether or not they will be finally able to break out of their ATS slump this season. I’d like them to win by 20 in this one.
