SEC Championship odds and spread: Tennessee vs. LSU

The point spread and betting odds preview of the SEC Championship game Tennessee vs. LSU.

SEC Championship odds and spread: Tennessee vs. LSU In this section we will take a look at the point spread and odds on the SEC Championship game between the No.14 Tennessee (9-3) and the No.5 LSU (10-2), as well as stats and other factors that could affect the outcome of this Saturday match-up in Atlanta, Georgia. The Tigers were tasting sweet BCS title game until they welcomed Arkansas at home last week, and a triple overtime victory for the Razorback spoiled the LSU's plans. But statistically not everything is lost and LSU will give 110% on Saturday against the Volunteers in the SEC championship game. The current point spread on the Tennessee vs. LSU game is sitting at -7.5 points chalk the Tigers at the online odds maker Bodog Sports. And the odds at Bookmaker are favoring LSU -275 with Tennessee underdog with betting odds of +235.

 There was a little scare today among the bookies, when LSU quarterback Matt Flynn found himself on the injury list and the odds makers pulled out all odds on the SEC Championship game for a review. But Matt Flynn was later reported as probable for the game against Tennessee and now the betting odds and point spread are posted as noted above. LSU safety Curtis Taylor, however, remains questionable for the game against the Vols and LB Derrick Odom, DE Ricky Jean-Francois and DT Charles Alexander are all out for the season. Tennessee also has some injuries to report - defensive end Xavier Mitchell is still questionable for the game against LSU, cornerbacks Antonio Gaines and Marsalous Johnson, running back LaMarcus Coker and defensive tackle Chase Nelson are all out for the rest of the season.

 Statistically, LSU is leading Tennessee in every aspect. Offensively the Tigers post 455.4 yards for 40.2 points on average per game, compared with the Vols with 412.8 yards and 35 points per game on average. LSU is also coming out with better defense, allowing 289.8 yards per game for 20.1 points and Tennessee is allowing on average 413.1 yards for 28.7 points. If these stats prove true in the SEC Championship game, LSU will have no problem covering the -7.5 points spread against Tennessee. Keep in mind, however, that Tennessee is 6-2-1 against the spread in its last 9 games and LSU is 1-7-1 against the spread in its last 9 games.
