Venue: College Playoffs Championship Game
When: January 7, 2019 / ESPN
Where: Levi’s Stadium, San Francisco
Defending Champions: Alabama Crimson Tide
The 2019 CFP National Championship game will take place one week after the College Football Playoff Bowl games have been played. This year, winners of the Cotton Bowl and Orange bowl will meet at the home of the San Francisco 49ers.
Each year, the College Football Playoff National Championship game will change venues, rotating between the four venues that have hosted CFP games in the past. Levi’s Stadium will playe host to the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship to be played on Monday, January 7, 2019 and will be the fifth national championship game of the CFP era. ESPN will broadcast the game live.
The drive for the College Football Playoff National Championship is a favorite of both bettors and oddsmakers. Perhaps only outside of the Super Bowl, this is the most popular game played all year long.
The 2017 college football season ended in a classic, with Alabama upending Georgia in overtime, 26-23. Could Alabama and Georgia meet once again in the 2019 National Championship Game? The two have great odds to make it happen according to Bookmaker.eu
Betting on the College Football Playoff National Championship game comes in many different forms, spanning plenty of different timeframes.
However, some teams just have better odds of ending the season with a National Championship and making you money.
Bettors will have the chance to jump in on the college football national title throughout the year. Here at Gamblers Palace, we'll go through several teams that could be smart bets before the NCAA Bowl season kicks off.
The dust has only just settled on Nick Saban's sixth National Championship and his fifth with Alabama, and already it's clear that he's going to have the favorite to do it all over again this time next year.
The defending National Champs are +225 favorites on the early National Championship odds, and it's largely thanks to the fact that a star was born during the title game in Tua Tagovailoa. The true freshman lit the world on fire by bringing the Tide back from down 10 in the fourth quarter to win the championship, capped with a bomb of a touchdown strike to win the game in overtime.
Of course, we know that there's still a long way to go to get the Crimson Tide from 0-0 back to the College Football Playoff, but they've been in the playoff every season thus far, and there's little reason to believe they won't be in it next year, too.
Ohio State is next in line at +700. For as thin as the Big Ten is at the top, the Buckeyes are going to have questions to answer at quarterback with J.T. Barrett gone. Dwayne Haskins figures to take over under center after going 40-for-57 for 565 yards in his freshman campaign in Columbus. He was great in the win over Michigan after Barrett was hurt, and that lends high hopes for another big run out of the team that was the first one left out of the CFP this year.
Not surprisingly, Clemson and Georgia are third and fourth in line after reaching the CFP this year. The Tigers are going to be going through a similar defensive rebuild to match the offensive rebuild of 2017. However, if Dabo Swinney proved nothing else this year, it's that he knows how to build a program. Clemson is a powerhouse, and it's here to stay. A price of +800 might end up looking really good on the Tigers.
Georgia, which will get back Jake Fromm for a second season after his successful true freshman campaign, is +1000.
Two Big Ten teams, Michigan and Penn State are next at +1500.
Oklahoma is the first team in line from the Big XII at +2500. The Sooners are losing the Heisman Trophy winner, Baker Mayfield, though remember that Kyler Murray was really good in limited action in his place.
The Pac-12 has had a bad history with the CFP, so it shouldn't be surprising that USC and Washington are the first two teams in line from this conference to win the National Championship at +4000 each.
Ohio State +700
Penn State +1500
Florida State +3000
Michigan State +3000
Texas A&M +4000
Notre Dame +5000
Virginia Tech +5000
West Virginia +5000
Oklahoma State +10000

Surprisingly, it wasn’t defense that won the title for Alabama in 2015, but an offense that took it to another level in the postseason under mastermind Lane Kiffin. After a 38-0 pasting of Michigan State in the semi-final, Alabama put up 45 points on Clemson and needed every last bit of that against a game Clemson team.
Jake Coker was great in the title game. Despite being seen as little more than a game manager throughout the year, Coker completed 64 percent of his passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson. This was after a rock solid performance against Michigan State and Coker deserves as much praise as anyone for Alabama’s title.
Coker’s main target in the CFP Title Game was O.J. Howard. Howard came to Alabama with a lot of promise in 2013, but never fulfilled that. He came into the title game as a tight end with two career touchdown passes and no 100-yard games, but was able to torch Clemson’s defense. Howard caught five passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns as Kiffin exploited Clemson’s weakness against tight ends.
It’s a good thing the offense showed up, because Clemson torched Alabama’s defense all night long. Deshaun Watson was electric and put up 478 total yards of offense and threw for four touchdowns against just one interception. Watson was the best quarterback in college football last season and showed that night. He was elusive in the pocket and occasionally scrambled for first downs and also threw darts to receivers in windows that weren’t very big. He will likely be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft next year and this game highlighted why.
Nick Saban isn’t usually one for trickery, but his gutsy call to onside kick in the fourth quarter played a big part in winning Alabama the title. The Tigers were ahead of the Crimson Tide at the start of the third quarter and after Alabama tied it with 10:34 to go in the game, Saban called for a surprise onside kick, which Alabama recovered and Clemson never came back from. The Crimson Tide took the lead shortly after and stayed a score ahead for the last 10 minutes.
