I believe that’s what is called absolutely domination when it comes to the odds. Their odds of playing in a New Year’s Six bowl are at -1,200! That’s absurd. The Tide’s odds of making the playoff are at -325. Again, we’re talking about numbers that are borderline locks. (RELATED: SEC FANS DON’T LIKE TO USE FACTS WHEN DISCUSSING COLLEGE FOOTBALL)
I honestly can’t remember the last time there was so much preseason hype around one team. Some people, oddsmakers included, are behaving like Alabama doesn’t need to play a single game in order to be crowned the kings of college football. Obviously, anything can happen, but the Tide are loaded with talent all over the field.
Plus, sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is an absolute stud on the field. Alabama’s going to be dangerous this year whenever they’re on the field, and I can’t wait to see if anybody in the SEC can challenge them.
