College Football National Championship Film Room: Alabama vs. Ohio State

It’s our most in-depth episode of the season helping you find an angle for the 2021 national championship game.

We get really, really deep into the weeds this week on our game film breakdown of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes.

We look at how these offenses are similar, the talent matchups at different positions, how what Bama is doing is basically just triple-option football with incredible talent, and where the holes are on both sides of the ball. How might Jaylen Waddle help?

What can Ohio State do to slow down the run game of Najee Harris? And can Justin Fields continue to make incredible throws to players like Chris Olave against a better secondary?

We get into all of it here and show you the tape that the coaches are watching, with an eye on how to make money betting on the game.

Here are the current odds for the national championship game from DraftKings Sportsbook:
