Betting Alabama Crimson Tide Football

Alabama Tide HelmetBetting Alabama sports means wagering on the Crimson Tide. There are other men's and women's professional and college sports teams you can wager on that are located in Alabama. But The Tide remains the number one sports bet in the state. Head coach Nick Saban has created such a monster of a powerhouse college football team that each week the idea of a blowout victory is not far-fetched. Going back to Paul William "Bear" Bryant, Alabama Crimson Tide football has been a favorite sports wager in the Yellowhammer State. The team's 15 National College Football Titles are a demonstration of the level of success The Tide has enjoyed, as well as the team's dominance, which attract plenty of US sports bettors looking to bet on Alabama football. (Below we will update the team's progress throughout the year, as Alabama plays in search of its 16th College Football Title.)

Alabama Crimson Tide 2015-2016 Football Season

Looking at Alabama, head coach Nick Saban is looking to wipe the bitter taste of the end of last year away. The Crimson Tide went into the 2014 Sugar Bowl favored to beat Ohio State, but the Buckeyes came away with a 42-35 win in what was part of the first college football playoff in history. Ohio State then defeated Oregon 11 days later to win the national title.

A good portion of that team returns for the 2015-16 season, which is good news, but there are a number of offensive holes that need to be filled. At quarterback, either Jake Coker or David Cornwell is expected to call signals, while in the backfield, Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake should work well together. Drake is coming off a major leg injury, but was effective during spring drills.

Meanwhile, the receiving contingent also took a major hit with the departure of the three top pass catchers. Chief among them was 2015 first round draft pick Amari Cooper, but former top recruits Robert Foster and Chris Black now get to show what they can do, while Calvin Ridley looks to make his mark as a true freshman in 2015.

Both the defensive line and linebacking corps return for Alabama, but the secondary is where the concern lies for fans of the team. Both safeties are gone from a unit that was shredded by both Auburn and Ohio State for a combined 86 points last year, so inexperience might be a factor in the early going.

Keys to a Crimson Tide Victory Against the Ole Miss Rebels

- This section is from last year. We will update it accordingly once the season progresses. This is the time of year when the big college football teams come to the meat of their schedule. And that is true with Alabama sports betting. Do not let the 42 point per game average scored by the Tide's offense up to this point fool you. It has been compiled in 4 games against weak opponents, and Ole Miss is anything but that. Alabama and Ole Miss are tied for first with a 1 - 0 record in the SEC West, and you had better believe Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze will have his team more than ready to face Saban's boys. To ensure victory, The Tide will have to figure out their past problems struggling against "race-car offenses" like the Rebels employ. Those words come directly from the mouth of Nick Saban. To slow down the hurry-up offense of Ole Miss, Alabama should pound the ball with running backs Derrick Henry and TJ Yeldon. That will keep senior Ole Miss QB and part-time hippy Bo Wallace off of the field. Alabama's young defense also has to play above its experience level, now that they will be up against a tested and talented, not to mention speedy offense.

Tips And Trends To Consider When Betting On Alabama Games

I'm not too sure about this season, but it recent years I've made a lot of money betting Alabama to cover first half, then bet against them the second half. For some reason Coach Saban wasn't really keen on blowing up the score and ran the ball mostly in the 2nd half of games, especially if they were already up big.

Of course this is probably going to change for 2014/2015 season and the new playoff system since teams want to put up as many points as they can in hopes for a playoff spot.
