LSU Tigers vs Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide remain undefeated on the season, but they face one last road test in perhaps the most hostile environment in College Football. LSU are undefeated at home, and come in off the bye week having beaten Mississippi State and Georgia last month. Alabama have had everything their own way this season, especially on the scoreboard, but this Tigers defence is capable of limiting the points, and Tua Tagovailoa’s arm, to keep things close.
Chris Weidman vs Ronaldo Souza
It’s tough to forget Chris Weidman once knocked out Anderson Silva, twice. The American’s been dealt a harsh dose of reality since then though, losing three of his last four fights in the UFC before defeating Kelvin Gastelum via submission last year. It’s been a long time in between drinks for the 34-year old, especially compared to Ronaldo Souza, who has fought twice this year. Both of these veterans are capable of throwing haymakers, but expect a cautious, and respectful approach in the early rounds that should see it last the journey.
Newcastle vs Watford
Watford have held their last two opponents scoreless, which makes tonight’s odds a little peculiar as it appears the bookies are having a tough time separating the two. To make things more interesting, the Magpies remain winless through 10 rounds, with management once again coming under fire for a lack of interest in the transfer window. Still, we’ve seen great clubs fall at St. James’ Park before, and for that reason, take a tip from the bookies and back the draw.
