The National Champion in college football heads into the new season with a huge target on their back. In the case of the Alabama Crimson Tide, very few teams have been able to hit that target, with the current champs winning it all 5 times in the last 9 years. Taking them down begins with getting ahead of them in the division, but even that is no guarantee that they will be put down. Auburn won the SEC West last season, but all for naught. This season, Auburn already look as though they might once again be going after the Crimson Tide, but it also looks as though the LSU Tigers might also be in the mix for NCAA Football Betting favorites to win it all.They had a massive win in Week 1 of the season and this week they will have what essentially amounts to a glorified scrimmage. The Tigers will welcome in the Southeastern Louisiana Lions for their home opener in a game that is currently off the board. This is not that surprising when you have one of the best programs in college football going against an FCS opponent.

Why bet on the Southeastern Louisiana Lions?You have to feel a little sorry for the Lions after they came so close to upsetting UL-Monroe in Week 1, losing 34-31 in a game that they entered as a 20-point underdog. Over the past several years, the Lions have played a number of lined games and have failed to win any of them. In the last 10 lined games that they have played during that stretch, they went 4-6 ATS, so it’s not as if they have consistently been a whipping boy for those bigger teams.We all know that these types of games are all about the smaller teams getting a big payday while allowing the bigger programs that they play to get in an opportunity to give playing time to some of their bench guys. The Lions will be out here to keep things as respectable as possible.
Why bet on the LSU Tigers?The LSU Tigers appeared to have given themselves a tough opening game this year when they opted to get the ball rolling against a Miami Hurricanes that flirted with a playoff spot last season. The game proved to be a whole lot easier for LSU than expected, as they cruised to a 33-17 win in a game that was even more one-sided than the final score suggests. The Tigers were, at one point, up 33-3 and cruising before taking their foot off the gas in the latter stages of the game.They were surprisingly good on offense against a D that was one of the best in college football last season. Their defense was no surprise, as it has always been good. They were particularly stout against the run, holding Miami to just 83 yards.
