The LSU Tigers are five-point favorites for their matchup against the Clemson Tigers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday, according to OddsShark.

LSU originally opened as three-point favorites, but that margin has since increased. The LSU defense ranks as No. 11 at keeping points off the board, and the Tigers suffered only two losses in the season to the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide and No. 3 Florida Gators.

LSU will be charged with the task of keeping the No. 6 scoring offense off the board when Clemson tries to bounce back from a loss to South Carolina in their regular season finale. The only two losses in the regular season for Clemson came against the No. 10 Gamecocks and No. 12 Florida State Seminoles.

The battle of a top offense against a top defense has caused for some fluctuation among over/under amounts, as they range from 57 points to as many as 60.
