Alabama is expected to dominate Cincy in the College Football Playoff.

The Crimson Tide will play the Bearcats and Georgia will take the field against Michigan in the semi-finals. Neither game has a very close spread. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In the odds from DraftKings, Nick Saban’s team is a -13.5 favorite over Luke Fickell’s team and Georgia has opened as a -7 favorite over Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.

I would legitimately be stunned if Alabama doesn’t blow Cincy out. Even with Metchie not playing anymore because of a torn ACL, I see no way Cincy’s defense contains Bryce Young and company.

We spent all season being told that Georgia had the greatest defense ever. Bryce Young made them look like a JV squad.

While I think we all agree Alabama will roll right through Cincy, it should be interesting to see how Michigan handles the Bulldogs.

After what we saw Saturday night, there’s no reason to not believe Harbaugh can get a big win and face Alabama in the title game.
