Point Spread: -8.50 | -109.00 Alabama (Home)
The Alabama Crimson Tide have run the table and have posted a 13-0 record and looking for their 18th national title in school history. The Alabama Crimson Tide have won eight straight non-home games. The offense is led by Mac Jones with 3,739 passing yards, to go with 32 touchdowns and four interceptions. Jones has nine touchdown passes in his last three games. His favorite targets have been DeVonta Smith and John Metchie III, who have combined to catch passes for 2,293 yards and 23 touchdowns. The Crimson Tide rushing attack is putting up 189.8 yards a game and is led by Najee Harris with 1,262 yards and 24 touchdowns. On the defensive side, they are giving up 19.5 points and 351.2 yards a game.
The Alabama Crimson Tide have the best offensive and defensive lines in the country and should be able to control things in the trenches. Ohio State has an NFL caliber quarterback and speed at the playmaking positions, Trey Sermon is starting to look like the running back people thought he was going to be at Oklahoma. I like Bama's receivers to take advantage of a Buckeye secondary that has been suspect this season and for the offensive line to wear down the Buckeye defense and that will allow Harris to take over late.
Play on Alabama. This is a 10* play.
