Alabama vs Clemson in Championship Rematch
Last year, the Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Clemson Tigers 45-40 to win the National Championship, but the Tigers beat the spread as 6-point underdogs (the Tigers scored a touchdown with 12 seconds remaining for the matador cover). Alabama is -6, but opened at –7 before the money started pouring in. The game total has also dipped from 52 points to 51.
Monday’s title rematch takes place at 8 PM ET at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. ESPN will televise the game.

The Crimson Tide have been very profitable this year at 14-0 straight up and 10-4 against the spread. In a bit of a shakeup, offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has left the team after accepting the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic. Steve Sarkisian will take his place a little earlier than expected.
Clemson (13-1 SU, 7-7 ATS) looks better than last year’s squad, especially after blanking the Ohio State Buckeyes (–1.5) 31-0 in the College Football Playoff semi-finals. The Tigers haven’t won the National Championship since 1981; Alabama has claimed four titles (2009, 2011, 2012, 2015) since Nick Saban took over the program 10 years ago.
