We love when rogue sportsbooks open up numbers that are just so tremendously square, it isn’t even funny. Today, we are going to take advantage of a very soft line that has been put out by Carbon Sportsbook, which features Alabama at a whopping -41 in spite of the fact that everyone else on the NCAA football odds features the game at 39.5 as of Monday night. In this case, we think that we have a winner by fading the two-time defending BCS National Champions on their home turf. It’s odd to think that this is the first home game of the year for the Crimson Tide after they took on a neutral site game and a road game, but alas, here we are. Alabama has shown domination on both offense and defense, but in this one, we think that are just too many flaws to be able to make up the difference in this huge spread.
The Tide could ultimately roll to a 35-0 victory, and Head Coach Nick Saban and the gang will be very thankful for that. Colorado State though, can put some points on the board. The team isn’t going to get past 14, and even reaching that high might be a bit of a stretch against what should be one of the best defenses in the nation. However, even getting to 10 forces Alabama to score 52 to beat us. QB AJ McCarron is good, but the one constant that we have seen in both of these first two games of the season is that his offensive line isn’t nearly as good this year as it was last season. With that being said, we want the points on our side in what could be a bit of a lackluster game for the Crimson Tide after being on Cloud Nine from that victory against the Aggies last week at Kyle Field.
