Alabama vs. Ohio State: Three things to knowAlabama posted 49.7 points per game to rank second in the nation, and they checked in fifth in the country in both total yards per game (543.9) and passing yards per game (354.1). QB Mac Jones
Ncaa Champion Oddsthrew for a school record 4,036 passing yards, and Heisman Trophy WR DeVonta Smith was on the receiving end for 105 receptions, 1,641 yards and 20 touchdowns. The Crimson Tide could welcome back WR Jaylen Waddle (ankle). He had 25 receptions for 557 yards and four touchdowns in his first four games before he was injured on the opening kickoff against Tennessee on Oct. 24.There were reports this game could be pushed back to Jan. 18 due to player availability concerns for Ohio State stemming from COVID-19 issues, but OSU, Alabama and the SEC are all planning to play Monday, Jan. 11. Big Ten officials are the only ones to raise concerns about the Buckeyes playing at this point due to a potential shortage of personnel.The last time these teams played, Ohio State dropped Alabama 42-35 in the 2014-15 Sugar Bowl before topping Oregon in the National Championship. Alabama is looking for its first title since pushing past Georgia in a 26-23 overtime win Jan. 8, 2018.

Money line (ML)
Alabama (-350) will cost you more than three times your potential return, and that’s just too risky for me. There is just no value there, so look to the spread instead. PASS.

Ncaa Final Odds
ALABAMA -8.5 (-110) is a machine on offense, as the Jones to Smith connection has been amazing. If the Crimson Tide are able to get Waddle back into the mix, too, that’s going to be too much for Ohio State to handle.
The Buckeyes offense looked amazing in topping Clemson in the national semifinal. RB Trey Sermon ran wild, QB Justin Fields displayed pinpoint accuracy and the defense did its job. Ohio State also entered with a chip on its shoulder, as it felt disrespected by Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney, who ranked them No. 11 due to a lack of games played.
‘Bama head coach Nick Saban isn’t giving them anything to feel disrespected about, although his daughter might need her phone taken away. She offered an opinion that the COVID-19 concerns for the Buckeyes were fabricated in order to give Fields some extra time to recover from a mid-body injury.
The Tide will “roll” up huge points on offense, and the Buckeyes will fade in the second half. Back Alabama to win by at least 9 points.
OVER 74.5 (-115) is worth a play outdoors on the fast track at Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida. The weather will be nice, and conditions optimum for the two sides to show off their speed. Both sides have plenty of speed to burn.
It will be an entertaining, and high-scoring first half, so betting OVER 37.5 (-130) on the first half line is certainly warranted, too.
