Alabama vs. LSU is always one of the biggest games of the college football season – so much so that the initial betting line for the 2020 game has already been set.
It’s revenge season for Nick Saban and the Tide this year. Alabama failed to make the College Football Playoff for the first time in playoff history in 2019. The Tide also suffered brutal losses to LSU and Auburn – there’s no doubt Alabama is looking to avenge those rivalry defeats this upcoming season.
Meanwhile at LSU, Ed Orgeron and the Tigers have the seemingly impossible task of trying to replace Heisman-winner Joe Burrow. Without the legendary QB behind center, it’ll be tough to take down the Crimson Tide.
But the current betting line is anticipating another LSU victory over Alabama in 2020 – despite the Tigers being without the services of Burrow. The Tigers are a slim 1-point favorite over the Tide for 2020’s big game.

That line is very likely to change before the game is actually played. Alabama appears better equipped for success in 2020 with LSU losing so many key players from last season’s national championship team.
But will LSU shock the world in 2020, once again?
Alabama vs. LSU kicks off on Nov. 7th, 2020.
