2020 LSU Football Betting Predictions

 

LSU Tigers Betting Odds & Forecast

2020 LSU Tigers Schedule

  • Sept. 26 vs. Mississippi State
  • Oct. 3 at Vanderbilt
  • Oct. 10 vs. Missouri
  • Oct. 17 at Florida
  • Oct. 24 vs. vs. South Carolina
  • Oct. 31 at Auburn
  • Nov. 14 vs. Alabama
  • Nov. 21 at Arkansas
  • Nov. 28 at Texas A&M
  • Dec. 5 vs. Ole Miss

Losing the Heisman-winning QB is going to be one of the biggest reasons LSU finds this year to be a little tougher, as presumed starter Myles Brennan gets comfortable in his new role. Joe Burrow isn't the only guy gone from last year though, and ultimately those losses as a whole will be felt more then LSU wants to believe right now.

The Tigers do get to be at home for the Alabama game this year, but road trips to Auburn and Texas A&M in the second half of the season look like severe slippery slopes for this 2020 LSU squad.

LSU Odds to win SEC West in 2020

Yes (+400)

Getting a SEC West title means you've always got to go through Alabama at the least, and LSU might not be good enough to do so in 2020. With Texas A&M (+400) and Auburn (+500) nipping at LSU's heels in that division race, and the Tigers playing on the road against both those foes, a 'yes' wager here likely needs a lot of help.

LSU Odds to win SEC Championship

Yes (+600)

Not a whole lot changes here in terms of LSU's prospects of this happening, and getting only an extra +200 on the price compared to the division odds when a win over Florida or Georgia is also required doesn't seem completely worth it. No program outside of Alabama has repeated as SEC champs since Tennessee did it back in the late-1990's and it's tough to think that the 2020 LSU Tigers will be the ones to snap that streak.

LSU Odds to Make 2020-21 College Football Playoff

Yes (+400) or No (-560)

This is a line that doesn't really make much sense in backing the 'yes' given the other futures available on positive LSU results, because for near certainty a SEC championship for LSU would have them playoff bound as well. And if it doesn't, then no SEC team is getting in. You can get +600 on winning the conference wager above.

The off chance the Tigers don't win the conference crown but do slide into the playoffs 4th or something isn't worth the discounted price at all. If a bettor really believes in LSU being a program that keeps the streak alive of defending champs making the playoffs again, they'll only do so with another perfect or one-loss regular season. That's the kind of season you've got to figure the Tigers have in 2020 to really consider that this happens.

LSU Odds to Win 2020-21 College Football Playoff

Yes (+1600)

All those recent champs may have found a way back to the playoffs, but none of them have successfully defended to date. LSU could be capable if they jump through all those earlier hurdles to be in the position to, but if all those hurdles are passed, there are much better future bets listed here to cash in on.

LSU Odds for Players to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy

The Tigers currently have two players listed in the Heisman Trophy Odds betting market.

(Position, SEC Player, School, Odds)
  • QB Myles Brennan, LSU 14/1
  • WR Ja'Marr Chase, LSU 66/1

LSU Tigers – Postseason Forecast

LSU climbed the mountain top in 2019, but the Bowl game they land in after 2020 will be a few notches lower. The Tigers have gone bowling every year this century (since 2000), and that won't change this year. It will likely be played in 2020 still with a late-December offering likely, as this team drops a few games along the way this year.

LSU Tigers Season Prediction

It's hard to really 'over' in the preseason on a college football team that comes into the year with a new QB taking over the starting position. Nevermind that team being the defending national champions at all, teams that turn things over to a new signal caller can't thrill any bettor to fall in love with 'overs' and 'yes' wagers without seeing something significant on film from the QB.

Yes, Myles Brennan got plenty of mop-up duty last year, but LSU's now the hunted, and a nine-win campaign is likely where they top out this year. However, oddly enough, the futures I would consider here are quite contradictory in general.

The 'under' 9 wins at plus money would be the first as if a ceiling of nine wins is the belief, going below that is a must. But should that projection be wrong in the end, well then it's another 10+ win season for LSU and a shot at the SEC West and/or conference title at +400 and +600 are likely in the cards. 2020 should be one or the other for LSU.

LSU Tigers 2019 Recap

Can't do any better then what the 2019 LSU Tigers accomplished. They went undefeated at 15-0 straight up (SU), won the national championship and had the Heisman winning QB under center for them to boot. Ed Orgeron got his program over the hump and made the most of his roster peaking together, and last year is always going to be one that LSU fans remember for a long time.

Really hard to match that type of success in successive years, but the 2020 LSU Tigers are surely going to try. If it's more of a restocking the talent as opposed to fully reloading things, LSU's got a chance at being on the national scene again this year, and each of the last four national champions made it back to the playoffs the following season. LSU fans just have to hope that the team isn't too caught up in trying to relive 2019 too much.
