In today’s Alabama vs Ohio State Prediction, Chalk won the first College Football Playoff semifinal matchup as Alabama cruised to the title game. Still, Ohio State threw the championship picture into disarray with a shocking upset win. It sets up an unexpected but fascinating title game between Crimson Tide and the Buckeyes on January 11 in Miami.
Will Justin Fields and Trey Sermon be able to pull off another upset, or will Alabama’s potent offense led by DeVonta Smith, Najee Harris, and Mac Jones be too much? Review the Alabama vs Ohio State Prediction and see what CasinoWatchPA predicts.
PROMO / SIGN UP
The Crimson Tide are supported by over a touchdown in the Alabama vs. Ohio State odds as of January 11. The point spread is Alabama -9, and the total is 75. Alabama is a -315 moneyline favorite, whereas Ohio State is a +240 wager.
Bettors in Tennessee, for example, who supported Alabama to cover as a 20-point favorite against Notre Dame, have been disappointed by a late Fighting Irish touchdown and backdoor cover. Alabama dominated the match after racing out to a 14-0 lead. Still, it could never entirely distance itself on its own to cover the huge number. In the context of the total, both teams should have racked up more points, ultimately falling short.
Meanwhile, those who bet on the points as well as the over in Ohio State’s upset win over Clemson were compensated with relatively low wins as the Buckeyes ruled play on their way to a total victory.

Following the semifinal round, bookmakers made Alabama a touchdown top choice over Ohio State.
Despite the Buckeyes’ strong showing, the odds are apparent. The top-ranked Crimson Tide enter this game undefeated, and the Heisman Trophy connection between quarterback Mac Jones as well as wide receiver DeVonta Smith is terrifying right now. Except for Florida’s 52-46 victory in the SEC Championship Game, hardly a team has gotten inside of 17 points of Alabama this season.
Alabama will indeed be favored at kickoff again for the 13th time throughout 13 games. But, at the same time, Ohio State will be an underdog for the first time this season.
Alabama is 8-4 against the spread in its overall record. Ohio State is 4-3 against the spread.
The Crimson Tide are -315 upon that moneyline as of Monday morning. The Buckeyes are worth +240.
