The national championship is set, and oddsmakers have made LSU a slight favorite against Clemson.
The initial line posted Saturday night at SportsBetting.ag showed LSU listed as a 3.5-point favorite over Clemson. However, early wagering forced a move to LSU -4, then -4.5 and then finally the current spread of -6.
The game’s over/under is set at 68.5 points, which is by far the highest total in CFP title game history (see complete list below).
The moneylines, or the odds for each team to just win the game, are LSU -210 and Clemson +180.
Current odds SportsBetting
LSU started the season with 30/1 odds to win the CFP National Championship. Clemson’s odds were 13/2, or +650.
LSU’s dominant victory against Oklahoma, as well as the close contest between Clemson and Ohio State, impacted the calculation of the championship odds. On Thursday, SportsBetting.ag posted look-ahead lines for each of the four matchup scenarios and at that time an LSU-Clemson game was listed as a pick ’em or tossup.
