Auburn-LSU Prediction

Here’s a series battle between two West teams that badly need some wins in the final weekend of league play. LSU has lost 6 of its last 10 and Auburn 7 of 10. These two are very even at hitting while Auburn has the edge batting and LSU in fielding. Auburn has played about .500 ball on the road this season. This series should be close to a tossup so you go with the home team. LSU 2 wins, Auburn 1 win.
