Alabama Is Favored By A Sickening Amount Against Every Other Top Five Team

David Hookstead | Reporter

The Alabama Crimson Tide are favored by at least a touchdown against every other top five team in America.

According to Golden Nugget Sportsbook director Tony Miller, the Tide would be 9.5 favorites against Ohio State, 10.5 against Georgia, 11.5 against Clemson and 14.5 against Oklahoma. (RELATED: SEC Fans Don’t Like To Use Facts When Discussing College Football)

Those numbers are mind-boggling to me. I’ve watched every single team on that list play at least one of their first two games. They’re all outstanding teams. Ohio State looks like they are absolutely unstoppable. Yet, they’re still 9.5 point underdogs against Nick Saban’s squad. That’s difficult to fathom.

I would absolutely take the Tide over everybody in the country right now other than Ohio State. I think the Buckeyes versus the Tide would make for an incredible game, with future NFL players all over the field.

I honestly believe OSU has all the tools necessary to keep up with Alabama. SEC fans might not like to hear it, but it’s the truth.

As for everybody else, I don’t think any of them could beat Alabama unless they played a perfect game. Even that might not be enough to get the job done.
