All time, Chris “The Bear” Fallica (since 2015) has a 146-112-4 record. He is well-known to the betting public, and he makes his pick for the CFB National Championship on this week’s podcast. Chris and Steve broke down the National Championship from a betting perspective at the beginning of the podcast. From Mac Jones, Jaylen Waddle’s status, and Alabama to Justin Fields and Trey Sermon going against Alabama. This year’s National Championship will be a great one between two storied college football programs, and given the spread being more than a touchdown it makes for a very interesting one from a betting perspective.
