Three years ago, the LSU Tigers were embarrassed to settle for Ed Orgeron as a compromise head coaching choice. Now Orgeron has the Bayou Bengals in position as the favorite with the CFB Odds to win the College Football Playoff. The Oklahoma Sooners are in the College Football Playoff for the third consecutive season. This time they at least have a semblance of a defense. The defending national champion Clemson Tigers flexed their powerful muscles down the stretch run to impress everyone about their chances for a repeat. And the Ohio State Buckeyes are looking like the most complete team in the land. Let’s take a look at the 2019 College Football Playoff!

2019 College Football Playoff Odds Analysis
LSU is an understandable favorite with the CFB odds as the undefeated SEC champion with the Heisman Trophy favorite in quarterback Joe Burrow. Clemson is also understandable as the undefeated defending national champion that has looked unbeatable down the stretch. Ohio State was impressive all year and looked more complete against tougher competition for 2019. Oklahoma could bring value as the underdog with a high-octane offense to go with a defense that is no longer helpless. The gambling public will likely flock to the top three picks while the Sooners may get action from bargain hunters.
Oklahoma vs. LSU -11, OU 76, 4 p.m. ET, ESPN
Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts is an Alabama transfer with plenty of familiarity against LSU. Borrow is now the top favorite to win the Heisman and be the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. LSU showed improved defense down the stretch and turned rendered a strong Georgia Bulldogs team into a pitiful helpless wannabe giant in the SEC championship game. Hurts brings the added dimension of top tier running ability but LSU is peaking at the perfect time with a stretch run that was terrifying to witness. Oklahoma is a very good and capable team but LSU has developed into a powerhouse.
Clemson -2, OU 63, vs. Ohio State, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN
It is interesting that Clemson is the number three seed and yet is the team that nobody wants to play. The Tigers toyed with Virginia in a massacre win in the ACC championship game while Ohio State got a scare from Wisconsin in the Big Ten title matchup. Indeed, the Badgers led the Buckeyes 21-7 at the half before OSU pulled themselves together with an impressive rally and 34-21 win. It was the first game all season in which Ohio State was truly tested. This is the most even matchup of the College Football Playoff. At the end Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence could be the difference maker in this one.

This is the most impressive and even foursome in the history of the College Football Playoff. Sure, Oklahoma is the underdog but has the capability of making a surprise run and win an upset title. Clemson has the championship experience and LSU has remade itself in a way that nobody could have fathomed a couple of years ago. Ohio State is in the unenviable task of going undefeated but having to face Clemson. Oklahoma wants a track meet in their matchup with LSU but do they have enough weapons?
