SportsBetting.com (a Colorado-based online sportsbook) opened the Crimson Tide as 7-point favorites, and the over/under of 75.5 points is the second-largest in CFP history.

When the Buckeyes and Tide met in the 2015 CFP semis, the teams combined to score 77 points. That game went well over the 58-point total, and Ohio State won as a 7.5-point underdog, which is still the biggest upset in CFP history.

Current CFP line:

Alabama has -250 moneyline odds to win the game while Ohio State has +220 odds to win outright.
