We’re just over eight hours away from kickoff for the Fiesta Bowl, but expert picks are still rolling in. Saturday morning, we got a look at what Chris “the Bear” Fallica of ESPN College GameDay is thinking for the big contest between Ohio State and Clemson.
Fallica, known as a guru when it comes to picking against the spread, revealed that he’s taking Clemson to both beat Ohio State and cover the two-point spread. He thinks the Tigers are going back to the national title game.
Fallica also revealed that an oddsmaker told him that the Fiesta Bowl could be the most bet-on game in college football history.
Fallica certainly isn’t perfect, but he does have a decent grip on the college football betting world. Still, some aren’t convinced his prediction will come true.

Per @chrisfallica, in speaking with an oddsmaker, Clemson-Ohio State might be the singlemost bet game in CFB history.
