Clemson Crimson Tide vs Alabama Tigers Preview and Prediction
Three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and the Alabama Crimson Tide dominating College Football. Coached by Nick Saban, the Tide has a recognized 16 national titles including the most wire-service (AP or Coaches) national titles in the poll era with 11. 'Bama has set numerous NCAA records including 64 postseason bowl appearances, 23 winning streaks of 10 or more games and 19 seasons with 10-0 starts. This season is no different as they look to repeat as champions in a rematch against the Clemson Tigers, one of this season's most prolific offensive teams led by two-time Heisman candidate Deshaun Watson who may again be a candidate for this season.
The Tigers look to avenge a heartbreaking loss from last year with an improved defense and another magnificent performance from their quarterback.

Watson played his heart out last year setting a national championship record with 478 total yards (405 passing and 73 rushing) with 4 touchdowns but it wasn't enough as the Tide won 45-40. Alabama had the third-ranked defense at that time and even improved on this season finishing first in defensive efficiency thanks to their superstar-laden group of defenders led by J.Allen in the middle. For the Tigers to beat the Tide, they'll need Watson to again rise and match his record-setting performance from last season while their improved defense holds Alabama at bay.

BET ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE (-220)
The Tigers are a trendy upset pick thanks to their impressive beat down of Ohio State where they put it all together. Or maybe it's simply predictors' fatigue where analysts just want to see someone new but you can't bet against the Tide now. "Defense wins championships" is the mantra and the Tide's monstrous D held all but two teams to 16 points or less including the #4-ranked Washington Huskies in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. Odds are also against Watson having a repeat performance, which they still lost. It's rare to say but the Tide are a value pick at 2-1.
