The 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship Game between No. 4 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia kicks off tonight at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs have both had over a week to prepare for this matchup, which has the potential to be an epic one. Regardless of who wins, the SEC already claimed another national title when both sides advanced through the semifinal this past Saturday.
Oddsmakers are expecting a close contest, installing Alabama as a 4.5-point favorite at the open. That line shifted down a full point at many books after it became known that Crimson Tide starters Afternee Jenkins and Lester Cotton would be held out and Minkah Fitzpatrick was limited in practice due to injury. These revelations have not stopped backers from hammering the chalk, as ESPN reported that William Hill has seen an overwhelming majority of the total money bet Alabama, including 88% of the money line—the Tide will return $1 for every $1.80 bet at current -180 ML odds—and 73% of the point spread money.
Will ‘Bama live up to these overwhelming expectations, or will Georgia come through against the odds as the ‘dog? Jon Price of SportsInformationTraders.com liked Georgia with the points when betting opened and has another lean on tonight’s game that you will not want to miss.

2018 CFP National Championship Game Viewing Guide
National Championship Preview: No. 3 Georgia (13-1) vs. No. 4 Alabama (12-1)
The matchup features a pair of one-loss teams that arrived at the title game following two distinctly different paths. Georgia took a traditional route, winning the SEC East and the SEC Championship Game to earn a College Football Playoff berth that wasn’t exactly controversial. Then the ‘Dawgs bested Oklahoma in a Rose Bowl shootout for the ages, a game that finally ended in double-overtime when star running back Sony Michel scampered for a 27-yard touchdown to put UGA through to the finals, 54-48.
The Tide’s journey was a bit more contentious. After steamrolling through the much of the regular season, they came up short in the season-ending Iron Bowl battle. That loss forced ‘Bama down to No. 2 in the SEC West and thus missed their opportunity to travel to Atlanta to compete in the conference championship. Despite not even winning the division, the CFP committee still deemed the Crimson Tide worthy of a semifinal berth as one of the country’s top four clubs. Alabama narrowly edged out an Ohio State team that was fresh off handing Wisconsin its only loss of the season in the Big Ten Championship Game. Debate swirled around their validity as a CFP contender, but the Tide proved their doubters wrong with a 24-6 Sugar Bowl blowout of the Clemson Tigers.
While the programs took different roads to Atlanta, there are many links between the schools involved in this all-SEC affair, including players—receivers Riley Ridley of Georgia and Calvin Ridley of Alabama are brothers who will square off tonight— coaches, style of play and even the Auburn opponent that handed them both their only losses of the season. One of the most direct links is through the head coaches. Georgia’s Kirby Smart will meet his former boss and mentor on the field for the first time since taking over in Athens back in late 2015. Chris Low noted that Smart has a rare opportunity to join an exclusive club of active coaches that have managed to best Saban during the last 16 years:
