With Army struggling to find consistent form and LSU looking to solidify their spot as one of the premier teams this season, Saturday’s matchup will surely offer some free NCAAF point spread picks.

Reed, with his 191 rushing yards and two touchdowns, has proven to be a formidable running back, while Alston’s ability to stretch the field with his impressive 29.6 yards per reception average could pose problems for LSU’s secondary.

|When:||Saturday, October 21, 2023 at 7:30 PM ET|
Bryson Daily QB vs. Jayden Daniels QB
Army’s Bryson Daily, despite enduring some struggles, has shown he has the arm strength to make an impact. With 712 passing yards, six touchdowns, and a commendable 9.2 yards per pass attempt, Daily has had moments of brilliance. However, his decision-making under pressure, evidenced by four interceptions and being sacked six times, might be a concern going up against LSU’s formidable defense.
In stark contrast, LSU’s Jayden Daniels has been nothing short of spectacular. Throwing for an impressive 2,294 yards with 22 touchdowns, Daniels boasts an incredible passer rating of 197.7. His 73.1% completion rate speaks volumes about his accuracy, and with only three interceptions, his decision-making has been exemplary. Daniels’ ability to keep plays alive, even under duress, will be crucial in this matchup.
NCAAF Odds/Point Spread: LSU Tigers -10000, Total Odds: 57.5
Given LSU’s impressive form and the challenges faced by Army, the betting odds are heavily in favor of the Tigers. A spread of -28.5 for LSU suggests bookmakers anticipate a significant victory margin. However, with a total set at 57.5, there’s an expectation for a high-scoring affair, which could be influenced by both teams’ offensive prowess.
Army Black Knights Betting Trends
Army’s betting trends highlight some areas of concern for potential bettors. With an 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games, they have often outperformed expectations. However, their 2-4 SU in the last six games and 1-6 ATS in October could deter some. The trend suggesting that the total has gone over in 8 of Army’s last 9 games played in week 8 is another statistic to consider, pointing towards a potential high-scoring encounter.
LSU Tigers Betting Trends
The Tigers have been fairly reliable for bettors, with a 4-2 ATS in their recent six games. The fact that the total has gone over in LSU’s last 10 games, combined with their 5-1 SU in their last six, showcases their offensive capabilities and their ability to pull off wins. Furthermore, their impeccable record of the total going over in their last six home games is indicative of their dominant home form.
Army Black Knights vs. LSU Tigers 10/21/23 Betting Picks
Given the current form and trends, it’s hard to look past an LSU victory. Their offensive juggernaut, combined with Army’s inconsistencies, hints towards a potentially one-sided affair. However, considering Army’s knack for high-scoring games in week 8 and LSU’s home game over trends, betting on an over for the total points might be a wise choice. As always, bettors should approach with caution and do their research.
