20/1 is fair/not great odds(LSU a solid dog in 2 of 12 games(16%), nearly 3 games if count 2 pt LSU/Ole Miss preseason line). 9/1(the original premise of this thread if you can f@cking read?) are very poor odds given the question marks of this team(which they may well answer..the talent is there though unproven)
Like I stated earlier, preseason #2 LSU back in 2007(anywhere from 7/1 to 10/1 or more depending when wager), of which anyone with eyes knew they were gonna be more well rounded and better than preseason #1 USC(3/1), with the deepest well-balanced O/D roster in the country, was in the same exact price range.
Six years later, with question marks aplenty, a changed SEC landscape with Saban now at Bama, a much now deeper SEC, a loaded UGA, much better USCe, now added ATM, and unfavorable road schedule..you wanna take the same pitiful Vegas sucker number??
Think about it, the same Vegas that will let you bet LSU to go unbeaten or 1 loss and champ for a meager 9/1 payout, wants you to lay -$1.40 to -$1.50 just to bet LSU Under a 9-3 regular season!!!!
