LSU Tigers Championship Odds for 2022: Will Brian Kelly Turn LSU Over in Year 1?

The LSU Tigers won a National Championship in 2019 behind one of the more stellar teams in college football history. Each side of the ball was literally stacked with NFL talent and the LSU Tigers brought home another Championship.

At LSU, expectations are always extremely high. But they're higher coming off a National Championship. Unfortunately for LSU, most players on that 2019 team went into the NFL Draft and that left LSU was major holes to fill.

With so many new faces, LSU was also trying to things out through a pandemic, with fewer practices and all that. So, therefore, the Tigers started to struggle and by 2021, head coach Ed Orgeron was fired and replaced by former Notre Dame head coach, Brian Kelly.

Kelly is going to have to develop talent and keep talent in Louisiana, but he'll also have to get major contributions from a handful of transfers this season.

The Tigers are currently +7500 to win the National Championship, but are they more clear contenders than the oddsmakers are giving them credit for?

It's never easy in the SEC. Many rosters in the SEC are currently unrecognizable, with so many transfers leaving their first SEC schools for their second.

LSU had them happen to them already this season, with Eli Ricks and Dwight McGlothern leaving for Alabama and Arkansas respectively. The Tigers also lost quarterback Max Johnson to Texas A&M.

But LSU also got some good news in the transfer portal. Former LSU starting quarterback, Myles Brennan elected to return to LSU once Johnson left the team. Brennan is likely the starter for LSU but there's still going to be competing against two other young quarterbacks.

Brennan was an LSU fan favorite during his time in LSU and was only leaving the Tigers to find an opportunity to play elsewhere. But with Johnson exiting, Brennan was given another chance at LSU and should more than likely play quarterback.

It's assumed that Brennan's return is what may have kept wide receiver Kayshon Boutte from transferring out of the program too. So far, Kelly has continued to impress on the recruiting trail and is adding staff members that have plenty of ties with Louisiana football.

It's not going to be easy in his first season, but every new LSU coach has won a National Championship at LSU. Kelly wanted talent that was good enough to beat teams like Alabama and Georgia. Now he's got that opportunity. While it's going to take time, Kelly is adding some really solid transfers including Jarrick Bernard-Converse at cornerback from Oklahoma State.

Kelly also added Joe Foucha at safety and Greg Brooks Jr. at cornerback from Arkansas while finding his running back for next season in Noah Cain, who was a star at Penn State.

Kelly also added a couple of University of Louisiana transfers as well. So there's going to be talent at LSU. It's going to be hard to beat Alabama with Bryce Young or even get by Georgia with Stetson Bennett. But overall, LSU will be competitive and deserve a little sprinkle on +7500 if you're feeling risky enough.
