2021 LSU Tigers Football Betting Predictions

June 7, 2021
by Stuart Durst

2021 LSU Tigers Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After 2019’s championship-winning season, the Tigers couldn't repeat the magic finishing just 5-5. In an uncommon season, and the departure of star quarterback Joe Burrow, nothing was the same. With an 8.5 win total set, you’ll need an impressive 9-3 bounce-back season to cash that ticket. With championship-winning coach Ed Orgeron at the helm, an easier schedule, and a healthy quarterback competition between two young talented arms, Tigers fans have lots to look forward to this year.

A good preseason best bet is LSU over 8.5 wins +100. While they will have some tough tasks against divisional opponents including Alabama, Texas A&M, Florida, and Auburn, they have the experience it takes to get the job done. While most teams have question marks all around the field, LSU just needs to figure out their starting quarterback situation and they should be in a great spot to turn it around.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 8.5 Wins +100

LSU Odds to win 2021 SEC Championship

Yes +1000

While you might be getting some very generous odds at +1000, this isn't a number I'm interested in. Even if LSU puts together the exciting nine or 10 win season I expect them to, it will be incredibly hard to win the SEC championship. Even if they manage to beat Alabama, in the regular season, coach Saban has a reputation for never repeating his mistakes. While LSU is a strong tier-two team, a championship-level team is required to win the SEC and they're just not there yet.

LSU Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +2500

For a team that just won a championship two years ago, +2500 is a very intriguing number. Unfortunately, the task is a bit too difficult for an LSU team with plenty of challenges along the way. I have high expectations for LSU - but beating teams like Alabama and Georgia is a step too far. If you can't resist getting some action in, I would recommend starting with the win totals then going progressively lighter on some of these long shots.


Derek Stingley, Jr. +5000

Max Johnson +5000

Tyrion Davis-Price +10000

Betting on a defensive back to win the Heisman trophy is flat-out crazy. There has been one defensive back to even win this award, Charles Woodson in 1997. While Derek Stingley, Jr. may be one of the most impressive defensive talents in the league, I’m staying as far away from this as possible.

Starting quarterback of the LSU Tigers Max Johnson is seemingly going to be in the Heisman conversation for a long while. With new offensive coordinator Jake Peetz recently saying "We want to make this Quarterback University" we should be excited about whoever ends up with the job.

Johnson ended up with some pretty impressive stats last season and should have plenty of opportunities to earn Heisman consideration. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything in particular that stands out about this bet, just another longshot quarterback.

While Davis-Price will try to rekindle the success of former hyphenated last name LSU superstar Clyde Edwards-Helaire, there isn’t enough of a defined role for him to be in serious contention. It’s already hard enough to compete for the Heisman as a running back, especially if you’re competing for playing time.
