Clemson will face Alabama in the National Championship game in Tampa, Fla. on Monday night at 8 pm ET.

The latest Vegas projection has Alabama as a six-point favorite against Clemson and -235 on the moneyline. Flashback just one year ago, the Tigers lost to Alabama 45-40 in an exciting offensive shootout.

Clemson has been an underdog twice all season and has ended up winning both games.

The betting website Oddshark has a projection of 40-33 in favor of the Crimson Tide.

"Clemson, ranked second in the nation, enters the rematch with Alabama coming off their most dominant performance of the year, as the Tigers shutout Ohio State 31-0," Oddshark said. "The Tigers defense held the Buckeyes to 215 yards and nine first downs while registering three turnovers. Clemson’s offense will go as far as Deshaun Watson will carry them. Watson has accounted for 46 touchdowns this season, which includes finding the end zone 17 times in the past four. Watson had a huge game against Alabama in last season’s national championship game, as the then-sophomore threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns with one interception."
