The LSU baseball team lost two series late in the regular season but opened the SEC tournament against South Carolina with the type of performance that reminded fans and bettors alike why the Tigers were ranked No. 1 so much of the season.
LSU is back to being the national title co-favorite with Wake Forest, leading to a discussion on Thursday's edition of "Bayou Bets," the twice-weekly sports betting show on Bet.NOLA.com, about where the odds might go from here.
The show is sponsored by Caesars Sportsbook, official odds partner of The Advocate and Times-Picayune.
Hosts Zach Ewing and Jim Derry had slightly different opinions on what LSU's prognosis was, but both were optimistic that the Tigers could make a run at Omaha.
Also discussed: the NBA playoffs, and why the Denver Nuggets have been so under-appreciated; the outlook for the Saints defense in 2023; and our dream sports road trips.
The show airs live at 4 p.m. every Monday and Thursday on the Bayou Bets YouTube channel and can be viewed on demand there anytime.
