Everybody and their mother seems to be backing LSU to cover against Clemson in the upcoming College Football Playoff National Championship game. Nearly 75% of the spread action offshore is on LSU at -6 (some books were at -5.5).

*50% signup bonus up to $1000
*Huge menu of eSports betting options including outrights
*Available most US states (NJ prohibited)
*Watch for top Bitcoin bonuses
*True dime line in Baseball up to -170
*$55 minimum to open account
*Highest credit card acceptance rate
*In business since 1999

The line opened as low as LSU favored by 3 and has certainly moved in the right direction based on the amount of action coming in.

"We're going to need Clemson for a whole pile," Jeff Davis, risk director for Caesars Sportsbook, told ESPN.com Thursday.

BetOnline's Dave Mason indicated that action was closer to 80% on LSU earlier in the week.

Jason Scott, vice president of trading for ROAR Digital/BetMGM sportsbooks, supported the notion of lopsided action on LSU.
"The last time we've seen such a one-sided [betting] event was Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather [in 2017]," Scott told ESPN.

In Vegas, just like offshore, the number seemed to be anywhere from 75% to 80% on the LSU spread.

The exposure across the board will be significant.

William Hill U.S. told ESPN that LSU-Clemson could be the "biggest-bet college football game of all time."

"Right now, it's all LSU," Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading for William Hill U.S., said Thursday. "Current money is about 8-to-1 in favor of LSU and tickets are about 4-to-1 in favor of LSU."

Most lines are derived from Sagarin and the oddsmakers shade them accordingly.  Sagarin does not factor in injuries.

On a neutral field, they have Clemson by a point.
