Alabama vs. Clemson in the College Football Title Game

Alabama (-6.5) vs Clemson

The 2 best college football teams in the U.S. meet tonight to settle the eternal question: Who’s Number One? Who’s the best? Who can beat everybody? And if you know by how much, you can make some money off it. So let’s take a look. 

So who wins it? Nick Saban, head coach at Alabama? Or Dabo Swinney, head coach at Clemson? Alabama sits on a lofty perch, basking in the glow of a 24-7 dismantling of Washington!

But Clemson rained on their parade by completely destroying #2 Ohio State 31-0. It was not only a humiliation of the Buckeyes. It was the first time Urban Meyer was blanked in 194 games a head coach!

So now what? 

Alabama's front-four will look to wreak havoc on Clemson's potent offense and the Tide will ride Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry as far as Clemson allows. But will it lead to Nick Saban’s 5th national championship?

Alabama's defense is scary good. But after what they did to the Buckeyes, can Clemson be far behind?

Alabama has been college football's most dominant program over the past decade, appearing in 3 previous National Championship games and has won the top prize 3 times under Nick Saban since 2007.  Now Clemson is knocking on the door – for the second time in two years – and knocking LOUDER. Alabama's defense ranks third nationally (yielding just 14.4 points per game), but the Tide figure to have a tough challenge stopping Clemson's explosive rushing attack that features Junior Wayne Gallman (1,482 yards), who has rushed for more than 100 yards in six of the last seven games.

While a lot of ‘Bama watchers have waited for Clemson to fall off its perch, the Tigers seem to have grown stronger. Or is Dabo Swinney just getting smarter as a coach?

So what’s gonna be?  Alabama is favored by 6.5. Will Clemson cover? Will they pull off the Upset of the Century? I’ve got the answer- THE answer that will make you money.  Click here for tonight’s winner from Jim Hurley.
