Not surprisingly, public bettors are siding with the Tide. Of the current wagers placed on this game, 62% are on Alabama.
The over is 4-0-1 in the Crimson Tide's last five games versus ACC opponents and is 20-6-1 in their last 27 neutral site games. On the other side, the over is 6-0 in the Seminoles' last six neutral site games, is 4-1 in their last five non-conference games, and is 5-2 in their last seven games in September. These two teams have enough firepower and have had enough time to prepare a game plan that I think they'll light up the scoreboard.
