One day after release, online sportsbook stops accepting bets for LSU's offseason QB competition
If you missed the news on Monday, online sportsbook BetDSI has released prop bets for several offseason quarterback competitions around the SEC.
The offseason quarterback competitions at Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Texas A&M and Tennessee all have odds listed but if you haven’t wagered already, you missed the opportunity to bet on the battle at LSU. When the prop bets were released, the competition in Baton Rouge had the following odds:
- Joe Burrow +130
- Myles Brennan +270
- Lowell Narcisse +360
- Justin McMillen +510
The reason you can no longer wager on that prop bet? It has been taken off the board due to heavy action in favor of Joe Burrow. BetDSI explained the decision to remove the LSU prop bet, as well as the Michigan QB competition.
“When we see heavy, sharp money on one side of a prop like this, it usually means information has been leaked,” a BetDSI oddsmaker said in an email to SDS. “Shea Patterson (-190) received a flurry of action for the Wolverines’ race while Joe Burrow (+130) was getting hammered on the LSU line. Two touted transfers, maybe we just had the odds too low, or maybe someone knows something we don’t.”
Basically what that means is LSU has already made the decision to start Burrow and many in Baton Rouge already know the answer or the betting public has a ton of faith in the Ohio State graduate transfer to start for LSU when the team opens the season in Arlington, Texas to face Miami and money was pouring on his selection.
Which one do you think it is?
