Alabama Season Odds

After surprising the college football world in 2008, Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide hope to have a repeat in 2009 and compete for a national title.

‘Bama amassed a 12-2 overall record and was a perfect 8-0 in the SEC until they lost to Florida in the conference title game. Utah shocked Saban and the Tide in the Sugar Bowl 31-17 to ruin an otherwise great season.

Alabama lost a ton of talent from last year’s team, as John Parker Wilson, Glenn Coffee, Andre Smith and Rashad Johnson all entered the NFL draft. They do have a couple key pieces returning, including running back Mark Ingram, wide receiver Julio Jones, safety Justin Woodall, linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive end Brandon Deaderick.

The Tide opened as 17/1 midrange long shots to win the 2010 BCS National Championship according to online sports book SPORTSBETTING. At those odds, Alabama offers some solid value, especially considering that the defense returns nine starters and the linebacker corps will be one of the best in the nation with McClain at the forefront of the unit.

The only issue is that the offense might take time to gel, especially now that the steady Parker isn’t under center anymore. The defense is outstanding though and will certainly carry ‘Bama until the offense gets its feat under them.
