Vegas Has Chosen Clemson To Repeat As The 2020 Title Favorite at +180
This year’s college football national championship game came as a 4th straight rematch between two of the sport’s biggest powerhouses. Alabama and Clemson were touted as head and shoulders above the college football landscape this year and rightfully so. Both were undefeated, both featuring young and electric quarterbacks, and both had completely dominated every opponent up to their meeting. Still, the Crimson Tide was favored by 5.5. This proved to be way off, but hindsight is 2020 and Vegas is now looking to the future by favoring Clemson.
Why Is Clemson the Favorite To Win The 2020 National Championship?
After every college football season, teams lose some of their best players to the NFL Draft. Clemson is no exception to this fact, seeing as how they will be losing their dominant defensive e lineman and key stars such as Treyvon Mullen, Kendall Joseph, and Tre Lamar. But, when you look at the offensive side of the ball Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence was only a true freshman and led his team to win a national title game. The future is bright for him and for his wide receivers and Clemson looks to reload talent with another top ten recruiting class.
How Do The Odds Look For Everyone Else?
When it comes to other teams Alabama is sitting right behind at +250. The rest of the top 5 features familiar names with Ohio State at +1200, Georgia at +1200, and Michigan at +1400 odds to win the national championship. These numbers are all according to SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas. Of course, the 2020 college football National championship odds will change as next season plays out and with any news coming in the off season so your chance to cash in may be now.
When it comes to other sportsbooks in sports betting states it’s worth noting that FanDuel already paid out bets for Alabama to win this year’s title game almost a month before the playoffs even began. While the company claims it has no regrets, the chances of them repeating something like this are slim. Most college football fans know that Clemson and Alabama have built dynasties, and oddsmakers see this trend continuing off to next season.
