LSU Tigers Odds – Tigers ready to pounce after hangover

NCAAF oddsThe favorable LSU Tigers odds deceived a number of bettors last year as the National Champs had a hangover year. Even after losing so much talent to the NFL, online betting handicappers still believed their squad to be a contender. The public was a year off - the LSU Tigers odds of winning this year are much better.

LSU Tigers odds: Jefferson now running the show

  • Charles Scott, Brandon LaFell are dangerous offensive weapons
  • 13 starters returns from last year’s team
  • Tigers will look for revenge against Ole Miss, Florida

The LSU Tigers odds to win the SEC West division are even with Alabama and Ole Miss at +200, but they have a leg up based on experience. They’ll have to use it because the division – and the conference – figures to be very tough this year.

College football betting fans know that the Tigers’ ship sank last year based on two reasons: shoddy quarterbacking and a feeble defense. Quarterback Jarrett Lee threw seven interceptions that were returned for touchdowns, which is unacceptable. The good news is that Jordan Jefferson has taken over full time at the position, and he is far more dangerous weapon. Not only is he more accurate with the ball, he has a stronger arm and is a threat to run. Jefferson was a true freshman last year and the experience he gained was fairly valuable.

He’ll be joined by a couple of big time playmakers, which is what truly makes the LSU Tigers odds legit in the SEC. Running back Charles Scott and wide receiver Brandon LaFell are among the best in the business, which will provide plenty of support for Jefferson. The sportsbook odds makers are putting more faith in LSU this year because the Tigers defense has enhanced significantly. Six starters are back on that side of the ball, which means the Tigers odds of winning on a weekly basis will be improved.

The Tigers were unexpectedly poor last year, and a lot of their SEC neighbors took advantage. Ole Miss put a spanking on them (31-13), Georgia (52-38), Florida ran up the score (51-21) and they nearly lost to Troy. This is a team that is going to be motivated to really bounce back.
