Alabama Eyes Another BCS Title With Auburn In The Way

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:45:04 AM

The NCAA football betting experts are all eyeing the Alabama Crimson Tide to be a repeat national champion, but this roll to a title looks to be just as challenging as it was last year. The Tide had to contend with an upstart Notre Dame team last season and Alabama almost did not make it to the championship game because of the way the rankings were set. But when given the chance last season, the Tide was able to lay its stake to the national title and also captured another SEC title in the process.

Alabama Crimson Tide (1) (-10 ½) @ Auburn Tigers (4) – Saturday November 30, 2013

The Auburn Tigers are a much-improved squad that is also trying to find its way to a bowl game. But with a 10-1 overall record and 6-1 record in the SEC, it looks like Auburn is looking at a shot at an SEC title at the very best. The betting websites do not expect to see the Tigers in the BCS championship game with Alabama, but Auburn still has plenty to play for. A win in this game would give Alabama and Auburn matching 7-1 records in the SEC and put Auburn that much closer to a shot at a conference title. There is a lot riding on this game for Auburn and this is a game that the Tigers do not want to let get away.

Why Alabama Will Win

There is no denying the fact that Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron is having a great season. He has thrown 23 touchdown passes this season and he is looking like the high NFL draft pick that he is expected to be. The Tide also has a strong running game with T.J. Yeldon who runs with power and with speed. But what will carry Alabama in this game is the same thing that has carried the Tide all season long, its defense. Alabama has the best defense in the country and it is looking to do some serious damage to an Auburn team that is having problems throwing the ball.

Why Auburn Will Win

The sports betting experts know that the Auburn Tigers have a better ground game than the Alabama Crimson Tide, but that is pretty much where it stops for Auburn. The Tigers will need to utilize their ground game to keep the Alabama offense of the field and possess the ball. The problem comes when Alabama forces Auburn to start throwing the football and rely on the shaky arm of quarterback Nick Marshall.

The Bottom Line

The Tigers have earned their number four ranking in the country, but there is a reason why the Tide is still ranked number one. While Auburn has more than enough offense to put other teams away, there just isn’t enough in the Auburn tank to take care of a persistent and talented Alabama offensive unit.

Pick: Alabama
