Analysis

Fan preferences aside, this is the best possible national championship that college football could have given us this season, and the fact that Alabama enters as a 5.5-point favorite (try to get it at 5) tells you all you need to know about how close this game will be.

Analysis
Clemson isn't the slightest bit intimidated by this matchup. They have enough along the defensive line to make life difficult for Tua, with the big threat in the backfield (Travis Etienne) and 15 covers in last 18 vs. Top 10 teams. Alabama's defense is good, but not as good as other recent editions.

Clemson has an excellent defense but I think Tua Tagovailoa and this Alabama passing attack will be able to score. Trevor Lawrence is going to be under constant pressure. How often do you get Alabama as a single-digit favorite? Look for the Tide to handle their business.

Analysis

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP - I've maintained all season long that Alabama and Clemson were a level above every other team in the country, and I haven't seen anything to cause me to change my mind. Even if it's somewhat boring to see them playing for a national title for the third time in five years, they're the ones that should be here. But this spread is too big. Ever since Clemson made the full-time switch from Kelly Bryant to Trevor Lawrence its offense has been every bit as potent as Alabama's, and Clemson's defense has actually been a bit better. Either team can win, but Clemson's going to cover.

These clubs combined for just 30 points in last year's CFP semifinals as dominant defensive units led the way. But the Crimson Tide were led by Jalen Hurts and Clemson by Kelly Bryant, both run-first quarterbacks who are no longer behind center.

A week ago, you read that any game involving Alabama’s defense did not warrant a total in the neighborhood of 80 points. Well, the Crimson Tide and Oklahoma collaborated to ring up 79. So, 58 seems doable for 'Bama and Clemson.

If you have one bet to make, take the over. These two wide receiver groups are both top five nationally in terms of overall talent and depth, and the secondaries of the two teams are the weak points of the defenses.

Even though defense is a strong suit for both, we must consider the weaponry on offense, where big plays abound. Both QB's (Tua and Trevor Lawrence) far better than those in last year's meeting, and even when the stop units were supreme, these two played over this total twice before in title games.
