Alabama win total odds


TUSCALOOSA, AL (TheSpread) – Alabama has been the top team in college football for the better part of a decade. Can the Crimson Tide keep up the strong play this year?

View 2015 National Championship Odds

According to oddsmakers at, the over/under win total odds for Alabama has been set at 10.5 this season. The over has odds of -140, while the under has a money line of +110.

Alabama is coming off an 11-2 season in 2013. The Crimson Tide started 11-0 and seemed set to play for another national title, but a wild finish against rival Auburn led to a 34-28 loss. The Tide then suffered a disappointing 45-31 loss to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.

Offensively, Alabama brings back six starters this season, but still have a lot of holes to fill. A.J. McCarron is gone at quarterback, but the team does have T.J. Yeldon back at running back. Yeldon rushed for 1,235 yards and 14 touchdowns last season and is a preseason Heisman contender. Junior receiver Amari Cooper is also back after catching 45 passes for 736 yards in 2013. One weak point could be the offensive line, which returns only two starters from last season.

Defensively, Alabama has just three starters back from a unit that allowed 13.9 points and 286.5 yards per game in 2013. Safety Landon Collins will probably lead the defense as he had 70 tackles and two interceptions last season. Like the offense, Alabama could be vulnerable up front, as it will start four non-seniors on the front seven.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Alabama has another tough opener this season, as it will face West Virginia in Atlanta to kickoff the college football season. The Tide won’t play a true road game until October, when it faces Ole Miss and Arkansas in back-to-back weeks. The Tide will also hit the road to face Tennessee and LSU. Home conference games include Texas A&M, Florida and Auburn. If Alabama has the depth we all expect, the Tide should contend for the SEC and national titles once again. Even if it were to fall out of the title picture, Alabama should still get to 11 wins.
