My dad has a good rule on this one. He never bets SC football. He will occasionally bet on Clemson to win in games they are favored. If Clemson wins, well at least he made money - If they blow it? Well it's worth the lost money of the bet for a Clemson loss.

Yea I know nothing at all about odds and betting.

Sometimes oddsmakers are satisfied with most of the money on 1 side. Happens all the time where u have like 80-90 percent of the $ on 1 side and they don't move the line or move it in the opposite direction. Do some research or know what you're talking about before u come at me with that. I know more about sportsbetting than you ever care to know about. They don't always set the lines to have a 50 50 split of the bets.

Go back and look at LSU game by game this season. Let me help you out. First three games of the year were blowouts. After that:

Lsu 12, Auburn 10
LSU 38, Towson 22
LSU 6, Florida 14
LSU 23, South Carolina 21
LSU 23, Texas A&M 19
LSU 17,Alabama 21
LSU 37, Miss St 17 (score was 20-17 early in the 3rd)
LSU 41, Ole Miss 35
LSU 20, Arkansas 13

What's the common theme in EVERY one of these games? LSU plays close games at their opponents level. Bad teams like Auburn, Towson, Arkansas, LSU plays sloppy and keeps them in it. Top SEC teams and LSU rises up.

That's why Vegas can't favor LSU big. Clemson has a good enough offense and LSU will find a way to make this one close.
