The guys over at The Saturday Edge were nice enough to ask me to contribute on their site for a piece regarding LSU's 2012 football fortunes. The Saturday Edge is a relatively new site dedicated to gambling/handicapping for college football. It's a well put together site, and the content is outstanding. I'm grateful they asked me to contribute there.
The topic was the over/under for LSU's win total for the 2012 season. Most sports books have the Tigers at either 10 or 10.5 wins. I give a quick preview on the team and some thoughts on how many games they may win. Below is a quick preview along with a link to read the entire story. I really encourage you to give it a quick read and to check out the site.
LSU finished last season with a perfect 12-0 regular season mark, and the oddsmakers seem to believe the Bayou Bengals have the talent to repeat that feat by setting LSU’s 2012 college football win totals at over 10 (-145) and under 10 (+125) and over 10.5 (+130) and under 10.5 (-170).
Helping us preview and project LSU’s 2012 season win totals is Kris Brauner of Saturday Night Slant. SNS is a great place to get the latest analysis, insight, and news on LSU Football and Recruiting.
Same as last year, only better
LSU’s strengths will be the same as they were in 2011. A stifling defense, solid running game, and outstanding special teams.
Even though they’ll be without first rounders Michael Brockers and Morris Claiborne, LSU’s defense should again be stingy.
