According to oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag, Oklahoma is favored in this playoff game, as the Sooners are getting odds of -4 points against Clemson. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 63.5 points. These two meet today at 4PM ET on ESPN. The game will be held from Sun Life Stadium in Miami, FL.

Watson has certainly been the focal point of the Clemson offense, throwing for 3,512 yards and 30 touchdowns while also rushing for 887 yards and 11 scores, but Gallman is an explosive weapon for the Tigers (13-0, 6-7 ATS) as well. The 6-1 junior running back has run for 1,332 yards and 10 touchdowns this season while averaging 5.5 yards per carry. His efforts, combined with Watson, give Clemson a ground attack that averages 221.8 yards per game.

Oklahoma (11-1, 9-3 ATS) doesn’t have a bad rushing defense, but the Sooners are giving up 149.2 yards per game on the ground. For tonight’s playoff game, oddsmakers are giving Gallman an over/under total of 98.5 rushing yards. Gallman has hit the 100-yards mark in eight games, including five of his last six outings. He also has had at least 15 carries in his last seven games, so Clemson is going to give him a chance to do damage. It should be noted that in Oklahoma’s lone loss this season, to Texas, the Sooners allowed 313 rushing yards to the Longhorns, with two different players going for over 100 yards.
