Here's a list of the most important factors influencing LSU betting futures expectations, as offered by an experienced handicapper, so read on before placing your college football futures bets.
LSU has won 8+ games in 15 straight seasons. Defense should rank among the best in the SEC with 10 returning starters.
LSU returns 18 starters, among them Heisman Trophy frontrunner after setting LSU's single-season rushing record, Leonard Fournette
Returning quarterback Brandon Harris (Also, add in Danny Etling - Purdue Transfer) at the QB position. (Backup QB - if betting season Over)
They will get the two leading receivers back — along with a new position coach in Dameyune Craig — in hopes of reinvigorating a stagnant passing attack. Whoever drops back to pass has a very talented receiving corps with Malachi Dupre leading the way.
Sophomore Derrius Guice could give Fournette an opportunity to lighten his workload at the RB position.
LSU's Third Defensive Coordinator In Three Seasons,
Dave Aranda ushers in a new era, bringing a 3-4 alignment to Baton Rouge for the first time in Les Miles' tenure.
The scheme may change, but LSU's loaded D will not
D Line one of if not the best in the country return all of the 2 deep and bring in 3 recruits who will all push for playing time
Great interior offensive line returning but the tackle positions are still a bit of a question and this must be considered when placing your College Football Picks. Although a bunch of offensive lineman on the roster have playing time.
The linebackers will be turned loose from all four spots, while the front three's job is to dominate between the hash marks and crash into the backfield. With superstar line coach Ed Orgeron handling the front three, expect it to be an absolute killer.
The penalties slow to a crawl. Flags have been a problem in the past for LSU, but after doing okay in 2014, the Tigers were hit 97 times last year.
