Clemson catches up with Alabama and is now a co-favorite to win it all

CBS Sports

There's been a lot of talk since Clemson beat Alabama for to win its second national title in three years about whether or not the Tigers have surpassed the Crimson Tide as a program. There's no telling how many hours of sports radio this discussion has consumed, but from my personal experience doing radio interviews during the offseason, it's a popular topic.

And if title odds are any indicator, Clemson might not have surpassed Alabama, but it has certainly caught it.

The Westgate Superbook has released its updated national title odds for the 2019 season, and both Alabama and Clemson are listed as 9/4, making them co-favorites to win the championship. This is significant because, when odds were first released in January, Alabama was 3/2 while Clemson was 7/2. So clearly the public believes Clemson is now on equal footing with the Tide.

The next closest to those two titans would be Georgia, which has moved from 12-1 to 6-1. 

What's perhaps the better indicator of the gap between Alabama and Clemson and everybody else is another prop Westgate has available.
