Pro Gamblers taking Clemson in CFP National Championship

After the first round of the CFB Playoffs last weekend the Alabama Crimson Tide opened as 7 point favorites vs Clemson on most Vegas Sportsbooks. As of Sunday, Bovada has Alabama as a 5 point favorite while some other Sportsbooks have them as low as a 4.5 point favorite. According to Christopher Smith of, 76% of money bet in Vegas has been on Alabama, but only 58% of the actual tickets were on Alabama. This means the "sharps" are throwing down big wagers on Clemson over Alabama. 

The College Football National Championship between Alabama and Clemson will be Monday, January 6th at 8:00 PM from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.
