Favoring Alabama to win comes as no surprise to most NCAA football followers, giving the Tide’s perfect record and previous Championship pedigree. Not to mention they had two players, Mac Jones (QB) and Devante Smith (WR), who were both finalists for the Heisman award, compared to just one finalist, Justin Fields (QB) from Ohio State.
Justin Fields is fresh off his most impressive win of the season where Ohio State stomped Trevor Lawrence (QB) and the Clemson Tigers 49-28. The game played out like a highlight reel for the Ohio State quarterback, and he finished the game with 385 passing yards and six passing touchdowns. However, oddsmakers still favor Alabama in the big game.
