Either Alabama 23-16 or Alabama 31-13
It will either be close or a blow out our way. All depends on turnovers and our special teams play.
Put it at 4.5/5 to keep it away from that -3 line. I'd look for the line to stay the same here and not move any. They've had this line for two weeks now so don't bet on it moving any time soon. Vegas likes Bama to win the SEC and the championship out right so they obviously like something other than this game being at BDS.
Things I'm looking at:
It's been pretty obvious what we've been trying to do this year with AJ, and half the reason why I laugh when I hear fans complain about not getting Trent his carries. Trent will get his own, don't worry about him. Saban and Co. want to get AJ comfortable and tons of game experience in throwing the ball well and making the right reads. He's slowly gotten comfortable throwing the deep ball and the staff is encouraging it. He has the arm, it's just the jitters. West Virginia torched LSU. We don't have the passing ability of WV but we don't need it. We have a running game. As long as were balanced it's game over.
Watching this group is like watching a well oiled machine. Tons of leadership in all the right positions, game time under their belts, and the best defensive mind in the country. Dre and Menzie will match up with Randall with safety over the top most of the time. Other than that we'll be blitzing like none other.
With that said, it's not like were going to score on every drive, stop them for 3 and outs every possession, ball bounce our way, or Miles to pull something out of his hat. It's going to be a hard fought out game. I obviously like Bama. We're at home, week to prepare, we have Saban, our defense, and a balanced offense with a Heisman candidate for a RB. Tried to go at it in a non homerish way with an insight to how I'm wagering my money. GL to all.
