The fourth-seeded Crimson Tide produced a strong defensive effort in the Sugar Bowl to knock out No.1 seed Clemson by 24-6 and will be looking to shutdown the running game of the Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs had 317 rushing yards in their thrilling 54-48 double-overtime win in the Rose Bowl over the Oklahoma Sooners.
Running backs Sony Michel (11 carries, 181 yards, 3 TDs) and Nick Chubb (14 carries, 145 yards, 2 TDs) shredded the Sooners’ defence and will be looking to find holes in the Bama defence.
The Crimson Tide limited the Tigers running back to just 64 rushing yards from 33 carries.
The Bulldogs will definitely present a greater challenge.
The Bulldogs will also have the advantage of the game being played in Georgia, while their coach Kirby Smart was the former defensive coordinator of the Crimson Tide.
Georgia is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall, while Alabama is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games.
The Wolf is sticking with the underdogs here.
The loss of Jennings is a massive blow for Alabama, while the running back duo of Michel and Chubb will look to tire out the Bama defence by moving the chains and keeping them on the field.
The +3.5 start for the Bulldogs is the way to play this one in what should be a tight National Championship game.
