With spring sports all in the rearview mirror, we are full steam ahead for football season. The Louisiana State Tigers don’t officially kick off the season until Sept. 4 in Los Angeles, but there is still plenty to discuss in regards to the team.
The 2020 campaign left a sour taste in the mouths of the Tigers but a new year is a new opportunity for the Bayou Bengals.
LSU Tigers Wire looks at regular win total, SEC Championship, and CFP odds for the 2021 football team.

Regular Season Win Total: Over 8.5 (-105) Under 8.5 (-115)
Last season the Tigers finished with an even 5-5 record following their 15-0 2019 campaign that ended with the CFP National Championship. The Tigers are looking for a return to prominence and it will all begin when LSU travels to the Rose Bowl to battle the UCLA Bruins.
Southeastern Conference Championship: +1200 (Fifth-best)
National Championship: +3500 (Eighth-best)
Overall LSU is the No. 8 team in the CFP National Championship odds. They are in front of Florida but trail Alabama, Georgia, and Texas A&M as far as SEC teams are concerned. Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin all are ahead of LSU as well.
