Free NCAAB Pick:

Alabama Crimson Tide -8.5

The Alabama Crimson Tide were finally taken off their hot streak with a road loss against a very good Oklahoma squad, and they should have no problem rebounding against and LSU team that has really struggled to find an identity as of recent. While Alabama won’t hit 23 three-pointers like they did in the first game, they are still very talented on the offensive attack as they are averaging 79.9 PPG and they have a handful of guys who can score the basketball with 4 different guys averaging over 11 PPG. The LSU Tigers gave up a 7-point lead in the final minute of their recent clash against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, and that is a testament to their terrible defense. Final Score Prediction, Alabama Crimson Tide win and cover ATS 78-66.
