Bowl season is underway. The LSU Tigers and Purdue Boilermakers will compete for postseason bragging rights at the Citrus Bowl at Camping World Stadium on Monday at 1:00 PM ET. He’s had 1,005 combined offensive yards so far, so expect a fast-paced game.
LSU took a big hit four weeks ago with a 50-30 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs. Despite the loss, the Tigers featured strong performances from WR Malik Neighbors, who caught 5 passes for 128 yards with 1 TD, and WR Kaishon Butte, who caught 6 passes for 107 yards with 1 TD. I gave a show. Near the top of the highlight reel is Jaden Daniels aiming Butte off his 53-yard TD bomb in the first quarter.
Meanwhile, a matchup between Purdue and the Michigan Wolverines four weeks ago came to an end at halftime, but Purdue were completely dominated in the second half, 29-9. Purdue was reluctant to take a nasty punch to the gut against Michigan, 43-22. The boilermaker certainly knew that he was 16 points behind on the points spread, but the foresight did not prevent the result. Their loss was one rush he scored a touchdown with RB Devin Mockobee and for 162 yards he caught 13 passes he shouldn’t overshadow the performance of WR Charlie Jones.
Most of the team’s points came courtesy of special teams who contributed 16.
The Tigers are the favorites in this match and are expected to have a 14.5 point margin of victory. LSU has disappointed bettors in the last two games in a row, so now may not be the best time to take his LSU against the spread.
A few numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: LSU ranks 15th in the nation when it comes to interceptions thrown, with only six in the season. However, Purdue picked up the ball 14 times to enter the contest and place 19th in the nation. We’ll see which of these strengths (offensive or defensive) wins.
