Coaches Ed Orgeron of LSU and Dan Mullen of Florida don’t have much in common. To illuminate, Orgeron is a delegator and motivator. Strategy and whiteboards are not for him. By contrast, Mullen is a master tactician. But he is arrogant and lacks political skills. Orgeron and Mullen have one thing in common. They anger fans and gamblers alike. Once upon a time, a matchup of LSU and Florida was appointment viewing. These days the Gators and Tigers are afterthoughts. All of which makes Saturday’s College football betting matchup an intriguing matchup.
