There are a number of factors to consider when placing your bets on this college football game. This includes the Moneyline, the Total, and the Odds to win the national championship. You may also want to consider the Buckeyes’ defense.
The moneyline is set at -530 for Alabama, but Ohio State is a slight favorite at +230. Both teams have scored at least 70 points in their previous meeting, and the total is at 86.5 points. Both teams have a 2-1 ATS record this season.
As the 2014-15 National Championship game proved, the Buckeyes can upset No. 1 Alabama. But the Buckeyes have value as the contrarian primetime dog. While Alabama has a proven track record in the title game, their recent record against No. 1 teams makes the Buckeyes a compelling play. Dogs are five-to-one ATS in the last six National Championships, and the Buckeyes have been a primetime contrarian dog.
Both teams are undefeated this season and both are looking to win their fourth national championship in six years. However, Alabama is the better team with a stacked lineup, and the Buckeyes have been struggling on offense this year. While Alabama is a solid pick, this game is a tough test for them. The Buckeyes have scored 50 or more points in each of the past two meetings, but the Crimson Tide has the edge on both sides of the ball.
If you’re looking for a way to cash in on the Alabama vs. Ohio State game spread, you should take advantage of DraftKings’ $100-1 odds on the winner. This is a tremendous value for a game with a high spread. In addition, because you’ll only be risking $1, you can get huge value.
Odds to win national championship
Both Alabama and Ohio State have been ranked high in the preseason AP poll. They are considered among the best teams in the country and are among the favorites to win the national championship in 2022. Both teams have Heisman Trophy contenders in their quarterbacks. They are also in the top four in the betting odds.
The early public betting splits for the national championship showdown between Alabama and Ohio State suggest that both teams can win. However, if there is no clear favorite in the CFP, the odds are stacked in favor of Alabama. They are favored to win the championship by a large margin. The other teams that are in the final four are Georgia, Clemson, and Texas A&M.
The difference between Alabama and Ohio State’s defense is their rushing attack. Both teams have outstanding running backs, but the Tide has been the more consistent team. Ohio State’s offense has been averaging over three yards per carry, but Alabama has held its opponents to under one. The Tide’s offensive line has been elite, and the rushing attack will benefit from that. However, Ohio State’s defensive secondary has been lacking production this season, which is a concern for the team.
Ohio State is ranked No. 3 in the country, and they swept the SEC this year. On the other hand, Alabama needed to win six games to get its CFP berth, and is the favorite to win the game. The Tide will need to hold off the Buckeyes’ running game to secure a victory.
Crimson Tide’s offense
The Crimson Tide offense features Heisman Trophy-winning wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Heisman finalist quarterback Mac Jones. The Tide’s offense has been dominant in its first 12 games, averaging 48 points per game. The offense is ranked second nationally in yards per play (4.47) and has scored 77 touchdowns. The Crimson Tide have scored at least 40 points twice this season, including a 31-point performance against Notre Dame.
The offensive line looked like construction boots. Ohio State’s line struggled to develop an earth-moving foundation and couldn’t keep up with Alabama. Several players on the team will make their decision in the coming days.
