  • Before the College Football Playoff semifinals ended, Collin Wilson had his bets locked and loaded for the national championship game.
  • Alabama is a 6.5-point favorite over Clemson.

The College Football Playoff championship game is Clemson-Alabama IV.

If you are keeping tabs at home, Alabama holds a 2-1 lead with each team splitting a national championship and last year’s Sugar Bowl serving as a Crimson Tide victory. Clemson advanced after a Cotton Bowl pummeling against Notre Dame. The Tigers doubled the Irish in total yards, racking up six sacks and five quarterback hurries.

Alabama was victorious in the Orange Bowl despite some sloppy play, beating Oklahoma 45-34 but failing to cover the spread.

Even before Saturday’s games, I knew Alabama would open too high.
