The 2019-20 college football season comes to an end when the LSU Tigers take on the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday, Jan. 13. As thing currently stand, LSU is 5.5-point favorite over Clemson, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this one, here are three of the best prop bets for the CFP National Championship between Clemson and LSU.
1. Trevor Lawrence Under 295.5 Passing Yards (-112)
Trevor Lawrence is one college football's top quarterbacks, but it'll be a challenge for him to eclipse 296 passing yards against LSU on Monday night. The Bayou Bengals have allowed just three quarterbacks to eclipse 296 yards passing this season and are allowing 221.7 yards passing per game on the season. Additionally, Lawrence has only racked up more than 295 passing yards on two occasions this season, and is averaging 245.1 passing yards per contest.
2. Home Team Total Points: Over 37.5 (-110)
Clemson has allowed an NCAA-best 10.6 points per game (PPG) this season, but LSU is a much more dynamic offense than what Clemson has faced thus far. The Tigers are averaging an FBS-best 49.8 PPG and have scored at least 37 points against some of college football's best scoring defenses, including Georgia (12.5 PPG allowed, No. 2 in FBS), and Alabama (18.8 PPG allowed, No. 15 in FBS).
3. Point Spread Alternative 2: LSU -8.5 (+140)
The Bayou Bengals have blown out the last three teams they played that were ranked in the top 5 of the College Football Playoff Rankings (Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma), winning those three games by an average of 22.3 points per game. Additionally, two of those three wins came by at least nine points. The lone exception was a five-point victory over Alabama, and the Crimson Tide needed an 85-yard bomb with under two minutes remaining to keep LSU from winning by double digits.
