Odds taken January 9th
President Trump Heavily Favored to Be Shown
If there ever was a guaranteed shoo-in bet that you can be assured of winning, it will be that President Donald Trump will be shown during the game. He’s expected to be making his second appearance at the national title game in the last three years, also showing up for Alabama-Georgia in 2018.
New: A White House official has confirmed to us that @realDonaldTrump will be at the #LSU-Clemson national championship in New Orleans. Scoop last week from @theadvocatebr @nolanews ICYMI: https://t.co/RPyMDDmj26 #lalege #lagov

Make some easy money for yourself from the get-go, even if it’s super low odds.
Pick: Yes (-500)
Will There Be a Shaq or OBJ Sighting?
LSU alum Shaquille O’Neal hasn’t witnessed his alma mater emerge as champ in college football in 13 years, so while it isn’t a totally obvious slam dunk that he’ll be at the contest, it would be a mild surprise if he didn’t show his face. This also provides an excellent opportunity to remind us just how dominant he was at basketball.
Who doesn’t want to see and hear from the jovial Shaq? Bank on him being there to support his boys.
Pick: Yes (-200)
Odell Beckham Jr. is also a former Tiger, having played for them from 2011-13. This wager is trickier with the same amount of money being paid out for yes as it is for no.
Given that he has strong ties to the program and his current Cleveland Browns teammate Jarvis Landry also played with him at LSU, expect a package deal of them hanging in the same circle.
Pick: Yes (-120)
James Carville Not Expect to Be Seen
Political commentator and LSU super fan James Carville is heavily favored not to be seen at the game, but he sports very intriguing +300 odds should he show up.
Knowing that nemesis Donald Trump will be there might deter Carville from going, or it could make him even more bullish to show up. While it would be nice to pick yes and earn that extra cash, the smart choice remains clear.
Pick: No (-500)
Tigers Will Be Said Ad Nauseam in First Quarter
A very intriguing bet is whether or not Tigers will be said four or more times in the first quarter, with it paying out -150 if it’s said early and often.
Both team nicknames are the Tigers, so surely it’ll go way over in the first quarter, right? Or is this a classic sucker bet that will sting us all? Still, seems doubtful the commentators won’t accidentally go overboard with Tiger references.
Pick: Over 3.5 (-150)
Drake Surely Can’t Stay Out of the Spotlight
This is a bet you can make and earn some extra dough on – Drake sporting +300 odds to make an appearance for the game. Really, what big game has he not poked his head in and potentially cursed the team he’s supporting?

Drake craves the spotlight and an opportunity like this is too good to pass up – make some money for yourself on this one at these odds.
Pick: Yes (+300)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
