Betting LSU Tigers
The Tigers are the best online sportsbooks’ road dogs. The Tigers allowed an SEC-record 623 yards through the air in a season-opening loss to Mississippi State. In the road loss to Missouri last week, LSU allowed 406 passing yards and four TD passes.
“I told the players to put it on me,” Orgeron said. “It starts with the coaches. I told the coaching staff that we’ve got to coach them better, got to get better. I’m not going to put it on the players. We’ve got to execute better, but we’ve got to practice better. There are some things going on in that film, some busts, guys running wide open.”
Orgeron swore to simplify the defense, hoping that his players can get the hang of some basics before going back to an expanded playbook. “I don’t care if we have to play one defense and one coverage. Play it, play it right, do whatever we need to do, put our athletes in a good position and let them make plays,” Orgeron said. “I’m going to make sure that any defense that’s called that we run it right all week and our guys understand it. If we don’t understand it, we’re not running it.”
Orgeron added that missed assignments were a major issue against Missouri. “I do believe there was some miscommunication going on,” he said. “Guys were out of position. Guys didn’t play stuff right. We’ve got to make sure our guys know everything that we’re going to do. If not, we’re not going to run it. Not letting people run by us and score touchdowns uncontested — that would be a great start. I don’t want to single anybody out on defense. When you give up 45 points, nobody is playing well.”
Betting Florida Gators
The Gators are the home chalk, per the best offshore gambling sites. Florida lost 41-38 to Texas A&M on a last-second field goal. Florida head coach Dan Mullen has turned his attention to defense; his team’s and the opponent’s.
“I probably spent more time than normal with the defense,” Mullen said. The Gators are allowing 495.0 yards per game. That ranks 72nd among 76 FBS teams playing this season. LSU ranks 71st at 494.7 yards per game.
Mullen wants more physicality up front, and has prompted his staff to assess personnel usage. “We went through each guy,” Mullen said. “We went through, ‘Are we asking guys to do things they can do well? Where are we being mismatched? Where is, right at this moment, where is their strength? Where is their weakness? And are we highlighting their strengths and protecting their weaknesses?'”
Mullen added that the Gators have been playing “short-handed defensively.” However, he hopes some players will be available this week. “We’ve got a great coaching staff, and I know our scheme is sound,” Mullen said. “But now, as guys are performing here on a live basis within a game, there’s a lot of new faces out there for us as well. Are we putting them in a position to make plays? What we’ve got to do is make sure we’re moving the guys into the right spots to be able to make plays.”

Neither school is playing well defensively. This clash of dueling defensive deficiencies could result in a shootout. So users of the best offshore gambling sites might want to bet on the over. Otherwise, take Florida to win and LSU to cover.
