LSU starts its season against Florida State. LSU was 10-4 last season and Florida State was 10-3. In a battle between 2 excellent teams, should you look to the side, total, or props to make a winning NCAAF pick for this game?

BetUS host Gary Segars, and college football expert handicappers Kyle Hunter and Parker Fleming preview College Football Week 1 game between LSU and Florida State. They'll go over the best value college football odds available and betting trends and share their College Football expert predictions.

This is definitely the Game of the Week as FSU comes into this one ranked No. 8 in the nation and LSU No. 5.

The line opened Tigers -2.5 and has only moved down a half point at a handful of sportsbooks.  It will be played in Orlando, giving the Noles what is pretty much home field advantage.

We get a line of LSU 3.68, suggesting an underlay of 1. Last year's college football betting model suggests a strong edge for LSU at this number.

The Seminoles return the bulk of their roster from last season’s 10-3 campaign, including star quarterback Jordan Travis and stud defensive end Jared Verse.  LSU also returns most of its starters.

LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels total passing yards number was coming in at Over/Under 234.5.  Travis number was 248.5.

This will be Brian Kelly's debut as head coach for LSU.

“We know what’s in store for us,” Kelly said. “It’s an outstanding football team. Mike Norvell’s done a great job building his program back to elite status.”
