Even with the 2020 college football offseason already impacted by some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, most programs don't have to wait until August to see the scheduling challenges that await them later this year.

In fact, most FBS Power 5 college football programs already have their entire 2020-21 season schedules finalized, including the LSU Tigers. And with a finalized schedule in hand, the spreads and betting odds to win each game aren't long to follow.

With that being said, here's a look at some early predictions for the outcomes of LSU's five biggest games in 2020 by the odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
