Here's who most people are betting on in the Sugar Bowl.

Alabama-Clemson III is one of the most anticipated matchups of the upcoming bowl season.

The Crimson Tide and Tigers have met in the last two national championship games, and the winner of this year's game will advance to a third-straight title tilt.

According to ESPN's David Purdum, the money is pouring in for 'Bama. Nearly 60 percent of bettors and nearly 90 percent of the overall money is going towards Alabama, who is a 2.5-point favorite.

While 'Bama is still 'Bama, it is a bit surprising to see bettors have this much confidence in them, especially since they had to sweat out getting into the College Football Playoff.

Still, they will be well-rested and healthier than when the season ended, and Nick Saban is still the coach.
