Clemson used a stunning 44-16 beatdown of Alabama in the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship to make a clear statement to the Crimson Tide and the rest of the college football world – the Tigers are here to stay.


Especially with the Tigers having absolutely thrashed the Alabama defense using two keys cogs, quarterback Trevor Lawrence and wide receiver Justyn Ross, who both just so happen to be freshmen.

In fact, college football fans aren't the only ones curious if we'll all see another Clemson-Alabama rematch in the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship game either, as FanDuel Sportsbook is now offering a prop bet for that outcome.

Considering there are 130 FBS teams and a collection of Top-10 programs that have the talent to compete for those final two spots, +250 odds seems to imply that there's a decent shot we  will see a 2019 CFP title game rematch in 2020. For those of us that aren't math experts, +250 odds roughly translates to a 28.6 percent implied probability of this outcome occurring.


So, let's put this in perspective. These +250 odds imply there's a higher probability of us seeing another Alabama-Clemson National Championship game matchup in 2020 than the Dallas Cowboys have of defeating the Los Angeles Rams as +270 underdogs in Saturday's NFC Divisional Round playoff matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.


Alabama (+160) and Clemson (+260) are already the favorites to win it all again next season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook as well. These are also relatively commanding odds given Georgia has the third-best odds at +800. 

Alabama and Clemson have met in the CFP in the previous four seasons, with three of those four matchups taking place in a National Championship game. The winner of each of those four matchups also went on the win the title. 

The way these two programs have dominated in the previous four seasons, perhaps the most likely way to spoil this outcome would be finding the two matched up against one another in the semifinal of the 2020 College Football Playoff as they were in 2018.
