The top four teams in college football are finally ready to face off in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
Our experts are here with their best bets for the two big games:
No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide (-20, 65.5)
Edwards: I like Alabama -19 or 19.5 for the game, but my favorite play with the most muscle behind it for money-management purposes is Nick Saban's team -11 in the first half. The Crimson Tide have covered the spread for first-half bets in seven straight gamesand are 9-2 ATS for first-half bets this season. Mac Jones will get after the Notre Dame defense early and often throwing to DeVonta Smith and John Metchie. When he's not stretching the field hitting those burners, he's handing off to the best RB in the nation in Najee Harris, who is poised for another monster performance.
