Someone is feeling very confident that the LSU Tigers will not only win but cover the spread Monday in the College Football National Championship Game.

How confident?

Laying down the most money of any individual bettor so far this year, this person wagered $400,700 on LSU to cover (-5).

As you can see, this ticket would yield just under three-quarters of a million if the Tigers do cover the five-point spread. Given how hot Heisman winner Joe Burrow has been in 2019, this massive bet may end up paying off.

Though, Dabo Swinney has his team feeling like Rocky going into the Soviet Union to take on Drago, so who knows what will happen?
