Betting Odds: LSU ML (-130) - Over/Under (56.5)
Pick: LSU ML (-130)
Sunday night, takes us to the marquee matchup of week one where the LSU Tigers and head coach Brian Kelly open up the season with a massive top ten matchup against Florida State and head coach Mike Norvell here in this one. This is a top 10 match up to open up the college football season and both of these teams have aspirations of reaching the college football playoffs this year as well. This is going to be a competitive and close game throughout all four quarters and it should provide us with potentially one of the best college football games of the season.
The LSU Tigers come into this season with plenty of expectations after a successful first year under Brian Kelly last season. They will be looking to make good on those expectations with a quality performance in the opening game of the season against Florida State on national television in front of a worldwide audience. They had some major victories last season like their win over Alabama, as they made it all the way to the SEC championship game before running into the eventual national champions, Georgia. Unfortunately, for LSU they were unable to pick up the victory against Georgia but they didn’t finish their season on a high note with their blowout victory over Purdue in the bowl game.
LSU comes into the opening game of the 2023-24 college football season after winning double digit games last year and they will be looking to build on that and potentially get themselves in a position to make the college football playoffs this year. They have Jayden Daniels returning behind Center after an impressive first season in Baton Rouge and he will be looking to get the job done once again and help them pick up a massive top 10 victory to open up the season. This will especially be a tough test for Brian Kelly, as we have seen in the past that he has struggled to get his team going in huge primetime matchups when he was with Notre Dame for over a decade.

Florida State has high hopes this season under Mike Norvell after they have completed a lengthy rebuilding process over the last few years. The program will be hoping that this is the season that at all finally comes together for the Seminoles and they can return to being a powerhouse within the college football world. They are arguably one of the favorites to take home the ACC title this season as well and it starts with picking up a victory in this massive season open in the form of a fellow top 10 team in the form of the LSU Tigers.
Last season Florida State ended the season with a record of 10-3 as they won double digit games with their bowl game victory over Oklahoma to end the year. They ended the season ranked inside the top 10 in the country and heading into Mike Norvell’s fourth season they will be looking to improve upon that finish from last season. In four seasons at the helm in Tallahassee, he has picked up 18 victories and 34 games and this team is the best team yet as he finally has his own recruits on the roster and ready to play. He will be looking to pick up a statement victory for the Seminoles in the opening game of the series against LSU here on Sunday night and take a massive step forward in the direction of this Florida State football program.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- LSU won double-digit games last season
- LSU is the betting favorite in this game
- LSU has won three out of their last five
I expect the LSU Tigers to get the job done in the opening game of the season against the Florida State Seminoles here on Sunday night. In my opinion, LSU has the better quarterback, and I look for them to take advantage of their quarterback play in this one and pick up a massive victory over Florida State to open up the season.
