Oddsmakers have released odds on potential College Football Playoff matchups. Naturally, Alabama is favored in all of them, but by more than you might think.

The offshore sportsbook listed three games for the Tide. If they don’t happen, all bets are no action.

  • Alabama -9 vs. Clemson
  • Alabama -14 vs. Michigan
  • Alabama -20.5 vs. Notre Dame

According to The Action Network power ratings, the spreads should be:

  • Alabama -5.5 vs. Clemson
  • Alabama -10 vs. Michigan
  • Alabama -14 vs. Notre Dame

These games would be on a neutral field, meaning oddsmakers are saying that the Tide are almost 10 points better than anyone in the country, and 4-6 points better than our power ratings are estimating.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook also posted odds on Clemson-Alabama on Sunday afternoon, making the Tide an 8.5-point favorite.

Alabama is 6-3 against the spread this season, but has covered its three most high-profile games by at least two touchdowns — Louisville, Ole Miss and LSU.
