BATON ROUGE, LA (TheSpread) – LSU has come up short in the SEC and national title race in recent years. Can the Tigers find a way to get to the top this season?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for LSU has been set at 8.5 this season. The over has odds of -110 to take place, while the under is listed at -120.

LSU went 10-3 in the 2013 season but was just 5-3 in the SEC, which was below expectations for Les Miles. Miles is entering his 10th season as coach of the Tigers and has a 95-24 record in his nine years with the program.

On offense, LSU has six starters back from a group that averaged 35.8 points and 453.3 yards per game, but the unit lost quarterback Zach Mettenberger, receiver Odell Beckham and running back Jeremy Hill. LSU has a solid foundation up front, which should help the quarterback situation. LSU appears torn between sophomore Anthony Jennings and freshman Brandon Harris to be the one to play under center. Miles has even indicated that both could play early on in the season.

Defensively, LSU allowed 22 points and 340.7 yards per game in 2013. The unit has six starters back from that group. The Tigers should be strong up front with returning ends Danielle Hunter and Jermauria Rasco. D.J. Welter is also returning at linebacker after having 80 tackles last season. In the secondary, LSU will be young, but the pressure from up front should help the youthful corners have strong numbers.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

LSU opens the year with a game against Wisconsin in Houston. That game will be a physical challenge for both teams, but the Tigers could find themselves in trouble with the Badgers as they break in new skill-position players. The Tigers will host Mississippi State, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Alabama in SEC play while hitting the road to face Auburn, Florida, Arkansas and Texas A&M. LSU could be great, but could also struggle. It will be decided by the offense. The Tigers should be more than capable on defense, but if they can’t score, they will likely come up short in some key games this season.
