LSU football just completed one of the best seasons in program history, and college football history, but it's never too early to take a look at odds on a Tigers repeat championship.
Shortly after winning the national championship Monday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, oddsmakers at VegasInsider updated its lines for next season.
LSU at 8/1 boasts the fourth-best championship odds heading into next season behind runner-up Clemson, 2019 semifinalist Clemson and perennial power Alabama. Georgia also has 8/1 odds.

Heading into the 2019 season, LSU started at 50/1 odds but that number dropped as the season got closer.
LSU will lose Joe Burrow and several other key leaders, but the Tigers return other starters, barring any transfers or other unexpected departures from the team.
Clemson returning star quarterback Trevor Lawrence is a main reason the Tigers boast the best odds for 2020. They won 29 consecutive games entering Monday's loss to LSU.
