According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovad.lv, Alabama is a massive 25.5-point favorite over West Virginia, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 55.5 points. The Crimson Tide opened as 25-point favorites and the line has since danced between 26, 25.5 and 25. As for the total, it opened at 57 and has been bet down between either 55.5 or 55.

Judging by the trends on both sides, the over looks like a great play for Saturday’s game. The over is 4-0 in the Mountaineers’ last four games, is 5-1 in their last six games on fieldturf and 5-2 in their last seven games versus the SEC conference.

The over is also 5-0-1 in the Crimson Tide’s last six games on fieldturf, a perfect 4-0 in its last four games versus the Big 12 Conference and 9-1-1 in its last 11 games at neutral sites. The over is also 6-2 in Alabama’s last eight games overall.

Under Nick Saban, the Tide has been known for its defense but questions remain at cornerback and ‘Bama has struggled against teams with an up-tempo approach. If Saban hasn’t fixed the issues that plagued Alabama against teams like Texas A&M over the past two years, then Dana Holgorsen’s offense shouldn’t have many issues lighting up the scoreboard on the fast track of the Georgia Dome tomorrow afternoon.
