Prediction: Take LSU and the points

Sean Salisbury of Total College Sports believes LSU is the choice in the big game against Alabama. Salisbury included this in his weekly picks video. Salisbury is 8-4 on the year against the spread and was 2-1 last week. Salisbury said it was “tough to pick,” but he simply does not believe Alabama will beat LSU by five points.

His other picks include USC rebounding from the loss to Stanford with a win over Colorado. Salisbury will lay the 21 points.

His last pick for the week features another team seeking a rebound win in Wisconsin. Wisconsin faces Purdue as a 26.5-point favorite. Salisbury says to lay the points. Purdue is going to get a “butt-whopping,” according to Salisbury’s Total College Sports analysis.
