2019 College Football Championship #1 Alabama Crimson Tide Vs. #2 Clemson Tigers
We are coming off another great season in college football, with just one game left to play before we start looking ahead to next season. As you guys already know, that final game is the National Championship Game, where we will see the best team in college football crowned on Monday night. While there are some fans who are not that happy at seeing Clemson and Alabama meet for the 4th time in the 5 years that we have had the playoff system in place, it’s hard to disagree with these two teams being the best in the game this season.
Both are coming into the title game with perfect unbeaten records, with both making their semi-final games look a little too easy. In the 3 previous playoff meetings, it is Alabama who have a 2-1 edge, although they have split the two games that they played in the title game. Alabama are in as a 5½ point favorite, with the point total set at 57½.
Why bet on the Alabama Crimson Tide?
Over the past decade, there has been no team as dominant as the Alabama Crimson Tide, as they have picked up 5 National Championships over the past 9 seasons. This is the 4th straight year that they will be in the big game, so there is no question of experience being an issue here.
Alabama have been pretty close to untouchable this year, thanks in large part to an offense that cranked out 44 PPG. They did get put to the test in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia, but still came away with a 7-point win, which was their smallest margin of victory this season. The Crimson Tide won a lot, but are just 8-6 ATS, which includes being 3-2 ATS in games played away from home. The point total is a little on the high side for this one, but Alabama have seen 9 of their last 14 games go OVER.
Why bet on the Clemson Tigers?
The Alabama Crimson Tide may be the dominant force in college football, but it’s fair to suggest that the Clemson Tigers are not that far behind. This is the 4th straight year that they will be in the playoffs, with 1 National Championship win to their name during that stretch. That win came against Alabama a couple of years back, but their most recent meeting, which came in the semi-finals last season, was a lopsided loss to the Tide.
The Tigers are actually not that far behind the offensive numbers posted by Alabama this year, averaging 41 PPG. It is a defense that is likely to be Clemson’s best bet this year, as they have given up just 16 PPG. In games played outside of Clemson, the Tigers went 5-1 ATS this season.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
This has all the makings of a fantastic National Championship Game, but I think we have a very definite winner. This may well be the best Alabama team that we have seen in the Nick Saban era, and I think they win and cover the spread.
Predicted Score: Alabama Crimson Tide 36 | Clemson Tigers 30
