Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Iona Gaels CashBet Wagering Analysis

The Iona Gaels are going to give the Alabama Crimson Tide a good run for their money in their homecourt. Talent-wise, the Crimson Tide is above the Gaels in this department and will be the safer pick to take.

Alabama Led by J.D Davidson

The Alabama Crimson Tide has been on a roll winning their first four games of the season and they are currently ranked 9th overall in the rankings. There is much upside to J.D. Davidson is heavily scouted by NBA teams right now and he is predicted to go midway in the first round. The playmaker has been blessed with a good basketball IQ and he is surrounded by good players who can help go deep come March Madness. Jaden Shackelford has been helping Davidson and he was the best player against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies doing 20 points while Jahvon Quinerly was not far away with 19. 

Iona Riding the Tandem of Joseph and Jolly

The Iona Gaels have been holding their ground and have remained undefeated in their first five games of the season. Much thanks to Nelly Junior Joseph doing 16.6 points and 7.2 rebounds per night while Tyson Jolly backing him up with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 blocks a game. Dylan Van Eyck has been the third-best scoring option with 12 ppg and Quen Slazinski adding depth with 10.8 ppg. The Gaels have legendary college coach Rick Pitino to thank for as his system has been hard to decode by many NCAA teams. Iona has been bringing it every night every time they step inside the basketball court.

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Iona Gaels Against the Spread

J.D. Davidson will be a tough cover for the Gaels’ guards and it is in his hands how the Alabama Crimson Tide will dictate the tempo. This is going to be closer than what is seen in NCAA basketball betting spreads.

Even with Rick Pitino controlling the team and having the home-court advantage as well, the Iona Gaels are still the underdog pick. It should be another win for the Alabama Crimson Tide who are also expected to go up in the rankings.
