The Blazers do not have an easy task in their quest to earn a bowl invitation, as they must win their last two games, including Saturday’s away game against LSU, where they are 0-4 this year.
If they want to win their first victory away from home on offense, the key will be what their ground game, led by the nation’s leading runner, DeWayne McBride, can do. The running back has rushed for at least 120 yards in each of his team’s games this year and accumulated 17 touchdowns, which is why UAB is sixth in the circuit in average ground yards per game with 246.4.
Defensively the Blazers have also done a decent job conceding an average of 21.3 points per game and ranking 15th in the nation in lowest average yards allowed per pass with 181.6.
Betting on the LSU Tigers
- Regular Season Record: 8-2
- Spread: -14.5
- Moneyline from BetMGM: (-650)
- Over/Under: 50.5 Points
The Tigers’ season is considered one of the biggest surprises in the nation as they finished as SEC West Conference champions and are currently ranked sixth in the AP rankings.
The amazing thing about this team is that week after week they manage to find ways to come out on top without dazzling in any specific area. Offensively they rank 39th in average points per game with 32.6, while ranking 39th in total yards per game with an average of 425.2.
On the defensive side, the tone is the same. While they allow just 21 points per game, they are the 34th ranked defense in total yards average with 347.4 and defending the ground attack, the Blazers’ strength, opponents average 139.9 yards on the ground.
LSU is in great momentum and at home they have a 5-1 record unlike UAB, which playing as a visitor has been a real calamity this season.
However, the Blazers have a very good team and should not be overwhelmed by a Tigers team that has won four of its last five games by ten points or less.
Prediction: UAB Spread.
