Clemson is 9-2 SU in its last 11 bowl/playoff games (10-1 ATS), despite being an underdog in nine of the 11 games; this is 4th time in last five years they’re playing for national title, winning the title two of last three years. Clemson had been a double digit favorite in every game this season until the Fiesta Bowl, when Ohio State outgained them by 99 yards. Clemson was down 16-0 but rallied to win behind soph QB Lawrence, who is unbeaten (25-0) as a college starter. Three of their last four games stayed under the total.

Joe Burrow had seven TD passes in his last game….at halftime- they threw for 532 yards in their 63-28 thrashing of Oklahoma. LSU has only three wins this year by less than 14 points- they beat Auburn/Alabama in consecutive games, by 3-5 points, and beat Texas 45-38 back in September. LSU gave up 409 PY to Texas, 418 to Alabama. LSU won four of its last five bowl/playoff games, they won the ’07 national title, lost the ’11 title game. Bayou Bengals are 13-7-1 ATS in their last 21 games as a single digit favorite. Four of their last six games went over.

Underdogs covered the last five national title games, winning three of them SU; New Orleans site obviously favors LSU; Clemson lost Sugar Bowl here to Alabama (24-6) two years ago.
