LSU Season Odds

The LSU Tigers are hoping that with a little less turmoil this offseason that they’ll compete for a national title this season.

In February of last year, LSU head coach Les Miles had to indefinitely suspended quarterback Ryan Perrilloux for violating team rules. Then in May, Miles booted Perrilloux off the team for reportedly failing a drug test.

The situation seemed to have a negative affect on the Tigers’ season, as LSU finished a disappointing 8-5. They did have a resounding 38-3 win over Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, but the Tigers’ season was largely a disappointment.

Miles is hoping that with running back Charles Scott (1,174 yards), quarterback Jarrett Lee (1,873 yards) and receiver Brandon LaFell (929 yards) all returning offensively this season, that LSU will get back on track in 2009.

Defensively, the Tigers will return safety Harry Coleman (71 tackles), defensive end Rahim Alem (8 sacks), and defensive back Chris Hawkins (three interceptions).

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING have given LSU 20/1 odds to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. Considering last year was a rebuilding year for LSU, the Tigers should be much improved in 2009. But their defensive front four needs to step up so that the defense on a whole can wreak as much havoc as they did last year. Offensively the quarterback play must be improved this season as well, especially considering the amount of quality defenses they’ll face in the SEC.
