LSU 18/1 to win 2015 FBS Title

LSU Tigers 2015 college football playoff odds

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Will the quarterback position hold LSU back from competing for a national title in 2014-15?

The Tigers lost a lot of marquee talent in the offseason, including starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. Receivers Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are also off to the NFL, as well as running back Jeremy Hill, guard Trai Turner, safety Craig Loston and defensive tackles Ego Ferguson and Anthony Johnson.

The good news for LSU is that Turner is the only starter that won't return to the offensive line. Tackles La'el Collins and Jerald Hawkins are back, as well as interior linemen Vadal Alexander and Elliott Porter. Losing all of that skill position talent on offense will hurt, but at least the Tigers will be experienced in the trenches.

On defense there are holes to fill, especially along the interior of the defensive line. But defensive ends Jermauria Rasco and Danielle Hunter return, as well as linebackers Kwon Alexander and D.J. Welter. Both starting cornerbacks return from a year ago (Jalen Mills and Tre'Davious White), as well as safety Corey Thompson.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, LSU is 18/1 to win the 2015 college football FBS championship and has 5/2 odds to make the four-team playoff this season. The key to the Tigers' success might be young quarterback Anthony Jennings, who proved to be more than capable when Mettenberger went down with an injury last year. But whether or not he can throw the ball with consistency is up for debate. If he proves that he can beat teams with his arm on a weekly basis, then LSU will be fighting for a playoff berth late in the year.
