The No. 5 Auburn Tigers are 0-2 ATS over their last two games after going 13-0 ATS in their previous 13 games. Auburn will look to avenge its only regular season loss from 2013 on Saturday when it hosts the No. 15 LSU Tigers.

Auburn is a 7.5-point favorite at home against LSU, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Since losing to LSU on Sept. 21, 2013, Auburn is 13-1 SU and 12-2 ATS.

The Auburn offense had a rare off day against Kansas State two weeks ago, escaping with a 20-14 win on the road in the Tigers’ lowest scoring game since Alabama shut them out in their final game of the 2012 season. The offense bounced back nicely in a 45-17 win over Louisiana Tech but narrowly failed to cover the spread as a 32-point favorite. Auburn is a perfect 8-0 SU and ATS in its last eight games against SEC opponents.

LSU visits Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium this Saturday night at 7:00pm ET.

LSU is 4-1 SU and ATS through the first five games of the season, but the loss certainly sticks out. The Tigers fell to a Mississippi State team that was 2-21 SU in its previous 23 games against ranked teams. LSU has outscored lowly Sam Houston State, Louisiana-Monroe and New Mexico State by a combined 150-7, but needed a late comeback to beat Wisconsin 28-24 and lost 34-29 to Mississippi State. LSU is 6-1 SU in its last seven games against Auburn.

The UNDER is 10-4 in the last 14 games between these two teams, but the OVER is 5-0 in Auburn's last five conference games. Saturday's total is set at 56 points at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

LSU turns to true freshman quarterback Brandon Harris as Anthony Jennings has struggled in his playing time this season. Harris has looked good, but this will be his first taste of a hostile road environment. Auburn will try to do a better job of solving LSU's defense after scoring just 21 points against the Tigers last season.
