Computer predicts winner of Clemson-Alabama

WhatifSports.com released its simulation results of the National Championship game between Clemson and Alabama with the Crimson Tide as the winner the majority of the time.

The game was simulated 501 times, and the Crimson Tide were victorious 58.1% of the simulations.

In the simulation, 31 points were scored in a wild fourth quarter as Alabama's Damien Harris scored on an 80-yard screen pass with a minute to go for the game-winning score.

However, the Clemson offense was not stagnant against the Alabama defense as Gallman had two touchdowns in the simulation (25 rushes for 90 yards) and Deshaun Watson was 26 for 35 for 315 passing yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The predicted final score is Alabama 34, Clemson 27.

Good news for Clemson fans is the game is not played on paper or any fancy computer simulation.

Assumedly, they put real data in there. They have control

They don't have access to "real" data. We can't quantify

I don't understand how that is countering anything I said.***

FWIW a 42% chance is reflective of a ~3 point line

That kind of thinking is putting the cart before the horse

I'm not claiming this (or any model) is perfect.
