With just a couple of weeks left in the college football season before the playoffs, it’s clear to see that Alabama is the clear favorite to make it to the playoffs. Not only can this been seen by the dominate performances shown this entire season, but also by looking at the remaining games of the season. If you follow the current college football betting trends and college football betting predictions, most of them have the Crimson Tide going undefeated and waltzing right into the playoffs. If you’re looking for college football spread picks, you can count on Alabama to cover virtually any spread they are given.
The Close Calls For The Crimson Tide
The 2 closest games for the Crimson Tide had been against Ole Miss (currently not ranked in the top 25), where it was a 5-point game, and LSU, where the Tigers managed to stall Alabama’s offense and held them to a mere 10 points. The only team remaining on Alabama’s schedule that has a chance of handing them their first, and likely only, loss of the season is Auburn. Auburn is ranked 18th in the nation by the Associated Press and 16th in a recent coach’s poll. The rivalry between Alabama and Auburn is nothing short of legendary and whenever these two football titans clash, it is always a must-watch event.
I think Auburn has enough talent on both sides of the ball to stall Alabama for a short time, but don’t think they can contain this mighty mammoth for long. I expect Alabama to come out of the gate slow and fall behind Auburn in the first half, but then dominate the entire second half of the game, putting an explanation point on their entire season and securing their spot in the playoffs ahead.
