Title game spread still 7 in Las Vegas
While the point spread for Monday night's national championship game between Alabama and Clemson has dropped online, in Vegas the number has stayed steady.
At Westgate Superbook, the MGM Mirage and the Wynn LV, the Crimson Tide remain a 7-point favorite over the Tigers for this year's championship. But according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, bettors are only receiving 6.5 points on Clemson.
There's less disparity in the over/under for Monday's title game. Both online and in Vegas the number has stayed at 50.5. The total opened at 48.5 points, but was bet up the full two points and that's where the number remains.
As a favorite this season, the Crimson Tide went 7-6 against the spread, winning by an average margin of 20.5 points and covering the spread by an average of +3.3. The only time the Tigers were an underdog this season was when they played Oklahoma in the Capital One Orange Bowl. They knocked off the Sooners 37-17 on New Year's Eve day as a 3.5-point dog.
