Alabama Game Notes

Alabama freshman forward Brandon Miller is one of the best players in the country. Miller leads the SEC in scoring with 19.5 points per game and ranks 4th in the conference with 8.2 rebounds per game. The 6’9” Antioch, TN native has been shooting well from deep this year, as he’s converting 45.1% of his three-pointers on 7.1 attempts per game. The Crimson Tide will need their fantastic freshman to perform at a high level to win and cover this game on the road Saturday.

Oklahoma’s leading scorer is senior guard Grant Sherfield. Sherfield is 7th in the Big 12 in scoring with 16.4 points per contest and tied for 7th in the conference with 2.4 made three-pointers per game. The Fort Worth, Texas native has been shooting well both from deep (42%) and the free throw line (86.3%) this year, and he’ll need to continue his hot shooting for Oklahoma to keep pace with an explosive Alabama team this weekend.

Alabama vs. Oklahoma CBB Prediction:

The Crimson Tide are the cream of the crop when it comes to college basketball teams this year. Their recent stretch of play demonstrates that. Alabama is 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 games overall and 7-1 against the spread following an outright win. They beat Mississippi State 66-63 on Wednesday. Further, Alabama is 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 games against a team with a winning straight-up record. The Sooners are 11-9 on the year. The Crimson Tide have been good on Saturdays this season (4-1 ATS) and I think that trend continues on the road in this interconference showdown. I’ll lay the points with the Crimson Tide.
