    Default Clemson vs Alabama

    Clemson vs Alabama. Bama -6.5

    The line has only moved .5 in the past week.....I'm surprised more people aren't taking Clemson especially with Kiffin out.

    If Watson comes out to play, Clemson could pull this off. I'd like to see them win. #GoUnderdog

    I honestly think Clemson is going to win. Buy the point and take Clemson +7.5 is almost a sure win.

    Look for the betting line to move downward before kickoff... It is unwise to bet against Alabama nonetheless.

    Don't forget, Washington's "explosive offense", which had averaged 44.5 points per game pre Peach Bowl, was humbled by an Alabama defense whose #1 ranking in total defense had clearly been earned.

    Just like against Washington, the biggest key to Alabama's success figures to be time of possession, no turnovers, and limiting the effectiveness of Clemson's high-octane offense...

    Again, Bama's offense will find scoring no more problematic than in previous games...

    Heim's Fearless Finale Forecast: Clemson has an axe to grind with the Tide after losing to them in a close one last year, but they will find Alabama to be an even better team this year than last... Bama's game to lose.

    Pregame, the line moves to Alabama -3 ... Bama covers...

    Alabama: 44 ... Clemson: 41

    Sorry to side against you, Dude and I appreciate your arguments but I think Clemson will win as well.

    I know everybody is focused on the Bama defense vs offense opponent, but I think you may looking in the wrong direction in this game. Watching the Alabama offense vs Huskies, it's apparent it's not really that good when it comes to this level. May I remind that the Clemson defense took on the #3 team and shut them out. Clemson by 10 whatever the score.

    It's all going to come down to back-up tight ends.

    No respect for UW to the end. Your football knowledge is questionable at best.

    I watched the game. I believe the final score vindicates my opinion on the Pac 12. Besides, who starts their games at near Midnight. Like some kinda freakoid conference. And don't give me that crap time difference argument because you have to get up at 4AM to see the Oscar nominees announced.

    Wouldn't 44-41 be a push if the spread is 3?

    Since the spread is 6 that's a no.
