Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered his first career loss on Monday night but the Tigers are not destined for a downturn.

At least that's not the vision of oddsmakers ready to install the national champion runner-up to LSU as the team to beat next season.

Clemson was as much as a 6-point underdog to LSU before Monday's game, but big money from professional bettors drove the line down to a 4-point spread hours before kickoff.

PointsBet opened with Clemson as the favorite for next season at +175, with Ohio State (+200) and Alabama (+500) close behind. LSU, which subtracts key talent in Heisman winner Joe Burrow and several key offensive linemen and defensive starters, is fourth at +800.
