OUR PREDICTION: The Crimson Tide are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall, while the Seminoles are only 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven neutral site games. Florida State has the talent to hang with 'Bama, but Saban's teams are always ready Week 1. In fact, in their last nine openers under Saban, the Tide are 8-1 against the spread, including last year's thumping of USC. Yes, the Tide has to replace a bunch of talent on defense. What else is new? With one of the better backfields in the nation, I like Alabama to eventually pull away from a tired FSU defense in the second half.
