The Book 2016: National Title Game

Who does the Book like in the Clemson-Bama title tilt? How did it do vs the spread in the bowls?

Will DeShaun Watson hold a bigger trophy come the Natty?

The final college football game of the season is tonight, with the College Football Playoff championship game between Clemson and Alabama.  This gives "The Book" one last shot at  a pick and believe it or not, after 744 games in the 2016 season, a chance to get over .500 on the year as we currently stand exactly at that number.  So a win and we can proudly be "bowl eligible" and a loss and we stay home for the prediction holidays.

The Book went 21-19 for the bowl season, including a 15-6 record in games between two power five programs and 5-1 in the New Year's Six games and 1-1 in the CFP semi finals.

In this game, the Book is taking Alabama.  Personally, I am leaning Clemson and taking the 6 that Danny Sheridan posted for the opening line, but the math here still favors the Tide.

Enjoy the game, the final rankings will be released on January 11.
