Clemson vs LSU Winner Is Obvious, According To ESPN
The Clemson vs LSU winner is obvious, according to ESPN.
ESPN recently created a computer model which predicts the outcome of football games.
According to this model, Clemson has a 55.8 percent chance of emerging from the National Championship Game victorious.
This prediction may come as something of a shock to the general public, who has been heavily betting on LSU for the past 10 days.
Originally, the title game line had LSU as a three-point favorite. As the days went on and the bets poured in, they moved to being a six-point favorite.
That means there is pretty big discrepancy between what the general public believes and what ESPN believes.
Both LSU and Clemson have a legitimate claim to being the best team in college football this year. That is why they are both playing for a championship, obviously.
LSU absolutely wrecked Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl, 63-28.
Clemson needed late-game heroics from Trevor Lawrence to beat Ohio State 29-23 in the Fiesta Bowl.
The gap in the dominance of those victories might be why the general public leans LSU.
That being said, it is worth noting that Ohio State is a far better team than Oklahoma was. As such, them being more of a challenge is not really all that surprising. And that might be why ESPN favors Clemson.
Either way, we will get our answer as to who is better soon enough.
Come Monday night, we all know once and for all who the best team in college football is.
