Oddsmakers have Alabama a slight (1 1/2 pt) favorite over Clemson, with Georgia-Oklahoma is listed as Pick'em in the opening line.

I agree with that. They do look weaker than they have in years, maybe since 2008 or 2007. But I'm not going to go so far as to say they will get wiped out by Clemson, i have to see that to believe it.

The four teams are equally good. I expect three close games. If the Ohio State had got in the play-off, some lucky team facing it in the semi will win by about 30 points. Any of the four will win by 30 points.

I tend to agree with you. Although I think Ohio St. would only have lost by 20. I think any of the 4 could win and it will produce interesting games.
