Alabama an early favorite in championship game against Georgia

After a 24-6 win over No. 1 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl, Alabama opens as an early favorite over Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship game (8 p.m., Jan. 8, ESPN).

The fourth-ranked Crimson Tide is favored by 4.5 points when the two teams meet in the all-SEC title game on Monday.

Georgia defeated Oklahoma, 54-48, in the Rose Bowl to make the title game at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Since the founding of the College Football Playoff in 2014, Alabama has made four Playoff appearances — three in the title game — and won once in 2016.
