All of the night's focus will be on the College Football Championship game between Clemson and Alabama.


First off, we do have some NBA action with the Spurs seeing 85% early lopsided action as a -3.5 favorite on the road in Detroit.  This line has yet to move.

Now let's get right to the big event of the evening, the National Title game.

Make no mistake about it, Alabama was seeing close to 65% of the early action as a -5.5 favorite versus Clemson.

With the books having offered the number previously as high as -6.5 and most holding at -5.5, Gambling911.com is giving the Tigers a 60% chance of covering the +6 spread (still available at some books).

If we see books drop the line to -5, we could boost those chances come kickoff.
