Alabama Crimson Tide at Missouri Tigers CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, we get the ultimate name-brand program with the sportsbook odds.  Alabama mans the college football marquee with Clemson.  Against a rebuilding Mizzou program that only adds to the price tag.  Eli Drinkwitz has no coaching cache.  Above he pales in public esteem with Nick Saban.  Through the years with Alabama Saban has built a monster.  Gamblers are used to Saban covering huge point spreads.  Compared to Crimson Tide the Tigers have zero public appeal.  Even bargain hunters and sharps are weary.  Nobody wants to step in front of the rolling Tide.

Tide Expects to Roll Back to College Football Playoff

Certainly, Tua Tagovailoa’s injury last year harmed Alabama’s playoff quest.  Mac Jones was thrust into the lineup.  Which makes for a Betting on college football advantage in 2020.  To be exact Jones gained valuable experience under center in 2019.  And will now bring the confidence that comes with that.  DeVonta Smith returns after a compiling a team-high 1256 receiving yards last season.  Senior running back Najee Harris is back.  Harris is a power back in the mode of Nick Saban’s roots.   To conclude Jones will not have the pressure of carrying the offense.
