The public in Las Vegas has sided with the Alabama Crimson Tide, but there's still plenty of support for the underdog Clemson Tigers -- the "sharp side" -- as game day arrives for the College Football Playoff National Championship (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).
Alabama is a seven-point favorite and is attracting the majority of the money. Three times as much money had been bet on the Crimson Tide than the Tigers at the Westgate SuperBook, mostly because of a "big" bet from a VIP casino guest. At William Hill's Nevada sportsbook, 82 percent of the money is on Alabama to cover the spread. But the action at other shops is much more even and includes big money on both sides.
Bet 50 to win 590:
Just read this about Curry, I'm guessing he plays, but likely in a limited role:
I'd take ASU ML but dont have that option. Last time ASU played a bowl game where the Dbacks typically play was ten years ago against Rutgers, winning 45-40:
Just wanted to go light, started with $100 a few days ago on bovada. Got up to 500 with some of these square college bowls on 8 bets. I used them before and never had any real issues, even got 2 payouts.
Noticed some of the live bets I won on totals weren't posting. The money won wasn't being paid out. My account history shows them as wins but the balance never updated correctly.
Check your account and run some totals if you do live bets with these guys. Unreal this kind of stuff is going on.
Game has gone over the last 3 times.
In 2 of those sessions, game total was covered in the 2nd & 3rd quarter.
I'm hoping for mid-60's. ASU's pass defense is terrible and UA's defense is inconsistent on the road with big points given up.
Past write-up on this from 2 years ago:
Total in this game has hit 3rd quarter in the last 4 of 5 games.
