LSU Wins, Bettors Rejoice

The oddsmakers liked the LSU Tigers, so did the public and for good reason. LSU easily knocked off the Ohio State Buckeyes in the 2008 BCS National Championship game. The victory gives the Tigers their second NCAA College Football national title in the last five years.

The game was never really close despite early scores and a late mini-rally by Ohio State. Turnovers and missed opportunities on offense and defense were the ultimate demise of the Buckeyes. Crowd noise from the home fans at the New Orleans Super Dome no doubt played a role in the Tigers commanding victory. At times the Buckeye's looked confused and unorganized.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog had made LSU -3.5 point spread betting line favorites over the Buckeyes. Our College Football Public Betting information recorded a total of 155,763 point spread bets on this game and over 57% of those bets were placed on LSU -3.5. The Tigers covered the -3.5 point spread easily and then some with the 38-24 victory.

Online sports books no doubt took a beating on this game with 57% of the public taking LSU -3.5.

The over was an easy winner as well. Prior to the game the over/under odds were set at 47.5 total points by Bodog oddsmakers. That number really never stood a chance in this high scoring affair. At the end of the third quarter the score was LSU 31 Ohio State 17.

Future bettors were also pleased with the Tigers Victory. Bettors who placed future wagers on LSU at the beginning of the 2007 at 10/1 will be paid $10 for every $1 bet.
