College Football Free Pick: Take the Crimson Tide. There’s no doubt that Nick Saban has spent these past couple of weeks analyzing every play the Tigers have made this season, including in LSU’s victory over ‘Bama earlier in the year. Given that much time and preparation, Saban is likely going to beat you, although there’s no doubt that Les Miles will have plenty of tricks up his sleeve as well. In the end, look for Alabama’s No. 1 defense and the rushing abilities of Trent Richardson to win out. According to latest college football trends, the Tide are 4-0 against the spread in their last four netural site games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight conference games.
