Clemson Tigers Betting

It wasn’t meant to be for the Clemson Tigers. The Tigers were out to win their third national championship in four years against the LSU Tigers on Monday night in New Orleans, but they couldn’t overcome Joe Burrow and LSU’s high-powered offense. Trevor Lawrence had a rather pedestrian game by his lofty standards in the 42-25 loss, failing to throw for a touchdown while completing less than 50 percent of his passes. The defense allowed LSU to gash this unit for 628 total yards, but there is a silver lining in all this for Clemson. Dabo Swinney’s Tigers are the current betting favorites to win the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship Game, and their futures odds are significantly lower than Alabama, Ohio State, and LSU.

2020 Season Preview

Lawrence is the frontrunner to win the 2020 Heisman Trophy. He will be entering his junior year at Clemson in 2020, and he has lit college football on fire over the past two seasons. Lawrence has already been dubbed the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck, and some are already saying that he is the most pro-ready quarterback to come out of college since Peyton Manning. In his first two seasons at Clemson, Lawrence has thrown for 6,945 yards with 66 touchdowns against 12 interceptions, but he might be without his best two skill position players in 2020.

Travis Etienne and Tee Higgins are both currently weighing whether to return to Clemson to try to win one more national championship or declare early for the NFL Draft. Etienne was one of the nation’s leading rushers last year, averaging 7.8 YPC and running for 19 touchdowns, while Higgins was Lawrence’s favorite target in the passing game. Both players are draft eligible juniors that would likely be selected in the first three rounds, but Clemson has an allure of its own. In a similar spot two years ago, most of the defensive line decided to come back to school despite receiving first-round grades during the draft process. That led Clemson to the 2018 CFP National Championship, and the Tigers are hoping for a similar story to unfold in 2020.

Linebacker Isaiah Simmons has already announced that he will leave school early as some are considering him a top ten pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and cornerback A.J. Terrell is likely to join him at the next level. However, James Skalski will return along with some real talent along the defensive line. Defensive coordinator Brent Venables is one of the best in the nation, and this unit should have little trouble becoming one of the elite defenses in the nation once again.

Season Recap

Clemson did not look like a defending national champion through the first month of the season. The Tigers were somewhat lackluster against Texas A&M, and they nearly lost on the road to North Carolina at the end of September. Lawrence had some uncharacteristic struggles, tossing eight interceptions in his first seven games, but the Tigers flipped a switch in mid-October and didn’t look back.

The Tigers hammered Florida State 45-14 on October 12, and that was their closest game until the College Football Playoff Semifinal against Ohio State. Clemson didn’t allow more than 14 points again until the ACC Championship Game when the Tigers waxed Virginia 62-17, but the Selection Committee still made them the No. 3 seed as the ACC was atrocious in 2019.

They fell behind Ohio State 16-0 early in the Fiesta Bowl, but Lawrence rallied the offense to lead Clemson to a 29-23 victory over the Buckeyes. Lawrence was somewhat stifled through the air in that game, so he used his legs to give the team a spark, carrying the ball 16 times for 107 yards and a score.

Clemson was a five-point underdog per the college football betting odds against LSU in the national championship, and the defending champions took a 17-7 lead early in the second quarter. However, the Bayou Bengals roared back, as Joe Burrow and the offense were simply too much. LSU gashed Clemson’s defense for 628 total yards of offense, capping off one of the most incredible single season turnarounds we have ever seen in college football.
