Online bookmaker 10Bet has Alabama at -180 to win the national championship.
Of the four teams competing for the national title, three have won a national title from 2014-2019. The outlier? Notre Dame. Yep, Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State have all won a national championship since 2014. The last time Notre Dame reigned upon college football was in 1988.
From 2010-2019, Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson have combined for 7 national championships, with Alabama’s 4 leading the way.
Notre Dame and Ohio State are two teams without a Heisman candidate as well. Alabama has two (Mac Jones and DeVonta Smith), while Clemson has one (Trevor Lawrence).
The Fighting Irish and Crimson Tide will play for the Rose Bowl, while Ohio State and Clemson will battle it out for the Sugar Bowl. Then, the winner will meet in the national final.
Notre Dame is the clear outlier in this group, but crazier things can happen. The Fighting Irish defeated Clemson earlier in the season, but then got washed away by the Tigers in the ACC championship game.
Ohio State and Bama are both undefeated, which should make for an interesting head-to-head battle if these teams meet in the national championship.
