What Hailey Van Lith Transfer to LSU Means for Women’s College Basketball National Title Odds

The best team in women’s college basketball just got even better as star guard Hailey Van Lith announced her transfer to LSU to join the women’s college basketball national champions.

Van Lith will now team up with college basketball star Angel Reese and head coach Kim Mulkey to make the Tigers the betting favorite to win the national title next season.

Van Lith joins LSU with one season left of college eligibility. The 5-foot-7 guard scored 19.7 points per game at Louisville last season, including 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists. She led the Cardinals to the Final Four last season, losing to South Carolina. Louisville lost to Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Elite 8 this season.

As women’s national title odds are updated across sportsbooks, the Tigers are now the betting favorite at most.

At FanDuel, LSU is the favorite at +450 ahead of Connecticut (+600), Virginia Tech (+750), Utah (+750) and Iowa (+750). They’re tied with Connecticut as the favorites at Caesars with +400 odds (Utah is +1400, Virginia Tech is +2000…always shop for the best odds!).

The best odds on the market for LSU to win the national championship are at DraftKings, where the Tigers are still +500 and behind UConn (+400).

Van Lith and Reese will pair the most formidable duo in college basketball. Reese averaged 23 points and 15 rebounds per game. They’ll be the favorites in the SEC after South Carolina faces significant roster turnover, including Aliyah Boston heading to the WNBA as the No. 1 overall pick.

UConn, always a national title contender, will get star guard Paige Bueckers back from injury and Clark returns for Iowa as other stars in the women’s game.
