Just after Clemson wrapped up its 29-23 victory over Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl, the opening line for the national title game was coming out. Top seeded LSU had opened as a 3.5-4 point favorite depending on which sports book you were looking at.

Well, it didn’t take long for the line to start moving. With almost all of the early money coming in on LSU, the line grew quickly.

So, there you have it. In just three short hours, Clemson has gone from a 3.5 point underdog, to as much as a 6.5 point underdog. Dabo Swinney won’t have any issues playing the underdog card with his team this time around.
