College football betting lines favor #7 LSU as they go on the road in SEC play to face Mississippi State on Saturday.
Not many people know what to make of the Tigers this season as they have started 3-0 but really haven’t played anyone. Going up against Mississippi State in college football odds might not tell us much either since the Bulldogs are not very good.
College football betting lines have LSU as a 12.5 point road favorite at the online sportsbook in this game. LSU has outscored their three opponents this year by a combined 85-35 but that really is meaningless in online betting considering the opponents have been Washington, Vanderbilt and Louisiana Lafayette. The win over Washington looks better now in college football betting lines after the Huskies upset USC last week. The concern for LSU is an offense that hasn’t done much.
LSU will find out how good they are in college football betting lines soon since after this game against Mississippi State they play Georgia and Florida.

"We are just so close to busting some really big plays you can see that on the playing field. You really can. We are getting really close and I think it is going to come really soon."
