One of the most-anticipated match-ups of bowl season takes place in the College Football Playoff. Not surprisingly, everyone wants to see what Kyler Murray and the Sooners can manage against the dominant Alabama Crimson Tide.
Nick Saban and company have made every College Football Playoff since its inception and enters this year with arguably his best team ever. Led by sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Tide are a significant favorite to make it back to the title game.
Alabama is a 14-point favorite against the Sooners.
One Vegas computer suggests and even bigger win for the Tide. OddsShark‘s score prediction has Alabama winning 53.3-36.4.
A 17-point win for the Tide isn’t outside the realm of possibility, considering the Sooners field one of the worst defenses in the country. However, Kyler Murray is the Heisman-winner for a reason and he’ll do everything possible to keep his team in contention.
This one should be entertaining.
