"No One" Is Betting On Clemson To Win It All

Nobody is betting on the Tigers.

Alabama is, unsurprisingly, the consensus favorite in Las Vegas to win college football's national championship this season. The Crimson Tide are the betting favorite and the team receiving the most money bet on it heading into the season for the third time in five years.

There's a top 10 team receiving basically on national title love in Las Vegas, though.

It's the team that won it all last year.

Clemson's national title odds have dropped significantly because "no one" is picking the Tigers.

From ESPN:

While the betting public has gravitated toward USC and Michigan, reigning champion Clemson has seen minimal support. After opening at 20-1, the Tigers have seen their national championship odds drift to 35-1, due to a lack of action.

Approximately four times as much money has been bet on Penn State as has been bet on Clemson at the Westgate. Oklahoma State, Florida and Georgia are among 13 teams that have garnered more bets than Clemson at sportsbook operator CG Technology.

"I have like no money on [Clemson]. It's unbelievable," said Chris Andrews, sportsbook director at South Point casino. "I still think they're going to be pretty good. I've jacked up their odds, certainly looking for a bet."

Clemson has a question mark at quarterback, but the Tigers are still pretty loaded.
