Football matchup - Alabama vs. Georgia - Odds and preview. A familiar name will be in this year's College Football Championship, as Alabama will be taking on Georgia.

Alabama, which is favoured by 3 1/2 points to win, very nearly missed the College Football playoffs after suffering a loss at the end of the loss. The team was fortunate, however, as some other high-ranked schools suffered late losses, which allowed Alabama to claim the final spot in the playoffs.

Georgia managed to edge their ways into the final game after winning a thrilling overtime game against Oklahoma. Alabama, on the other hand, easily handled Clemson and looks primed to win yet another national title under Nick Saban's watch.

Despite entering the college football playoffs as the #4 seed, Alabama is favored to win the final game. Given that the team very nearly missed the playoffs, Alabama seems to be playing with an edge and will likely be tough to beat.

The one important intangible to remember in this game is Alabama's experience - they have a coach who has won the college football Championship multiple times in the past, plus they have a number of players with big game experience.

Will this be enough to put Alabama over the top, or will Georgia score the mild upset?
