The overly wordy 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship is here and our prediction is an Alabama win on January 11th. This may seem like a bit of a “gimme” pick as not too many people are picking a Clemson Tigers victory. However, even though the Crimson Tide will almost surely win I feel it will be a closer game than the current touchdown point spread would indicate.
Clemson Tigers Offense Powerful – Alabama Crimson Tide Defense Dominates
Now before you go on and on about Alabama shutting out and embarrassing the hell out of Michigan State, I must make a bit of a case for Clemson’s offense. The Tiger’s offense has been electric all year long, and clearly the Oklahoma Sooners didn’t give Deshaun Watson and company the respect that an undefeated team deserves. Watson put up 145 yards of rushing offense to go with his 187 yards passing in a virtuoso display of talent. Add to that Wayne Gallman’s 145 yards rushing and you now have a potent offense.
Time to talk about Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. There is no doubt that the Crimson Tide not only have the best defense in college football, but if you are betting on college football then you are usually taking Alabama. They are that good and Saban is looking for his 5th national title. However, in the Spartans they faced a good offense but not a great one. It probably didn’t matter what offensive configuration the Spartans fielded as the play calling by Nick Saban and his coaches was superb. At the end of the day, Alabama was just playing football at an entirely different level.
The 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship – Alabama Wins
Ultimately Alabama will beat the Clemson Tigers for the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship. Do your own research as always and go with your handicapping system. However, I think it is going to be much more of a nail biter than it appears on a first look. Clemson is going to show up big, and depending on the price, taking the Tigers with points may be an inspired bet.
