As the season approaches, it's time to start looking at NFL and college predictions. Oddsmakers predict 11 victories for the Saints and 10.5 for LSU.
According to the online sportsbook, Bodog.com, whose lines generally equate to most of the books in Las Vegas, over/under totals for the NFL and college football do not include playoff, bowl or conference championship games.
Writes the website about the Saints total: "This exactly the number I had in my mind. I'm more of a pessimist than an optimist, so given age and their division. I lean to under 11."
Here's how the sportsbook's totals for other NFL teams:
Green Bay 10-6
NY Giants 10-6
Tampa Bay 10-6
St. Louis 7-9
San Francisco 6-10
New England 14-2
NY Jets 11-5
Kansas City 10-6
San Diego 9-7
Mississippi State 6.5
Ole Miss 3.5
South Carolina 10.5
Bodog.com predicts LSU wins over New Mexico State, at Mississippi State, at West Virginia, Kentucky at Tennessee, Western Kentucky, at Ole Miss. The Tigers' game with Oregon, Auburn, at Alabama and Arkansas are rated as tossups.
The website doesn't predict any loses for the Tigers.
Bleacher Report has ranked the top 50 loudest college football stadiums. The website ranked LSU's Tiger Stadium the loudest in the land. "When your crowd registers on a seismograph, you come in at No. 1 . LSU, the other Death Valley, is the most frightening place for a team to play, especially if you are unfortunate enough to schedule a game at night. A game in Tiger Stadium is a guaranteed sellout no matter who LSU is playing that week."
Florida ranks No. 4, Tennessee No. 8 and Auburn No. 16.
