NCAA Football Game Lines: Alabama vs South Florida Odds and Prediction

Next year, we will see the playoff format change in college football, with 12 teams set to go into the postseason. That will take some of the pressure off teams, but for now, losing 1 game, especially early in the season, makes the chances of getting into the final four that much harder. Teams that lose early on essentially have to be perfect the rest of the way and potentially win a conference championship just to be part of the conversation with the Playoff Committee. That is what the Alabama Crimson Tide are looking at after losing in Week 2, so all they can do is put that loss behind them and try to find a way to win again. They will get their first opportunity to do that this weekend when they head to Tampa to face the USF Bulls as a 32-point favorite. The point total for this one is set at 61, so let’s take a closer look to consider in your college football betting.

Why bet on the Alabama Crimson Tide

While losing in the early part of the season is a problem in college football, it’s often who you lose to that really matters. For example, Clemson are in real trouble after losing to Duke, whereas Alabama will be cut some slack for losing to a very good Texas Longhorns team this past weekend. At the end of the day, though, it all comes down to the same thing, which is that neither of those teams can lose again if they hope to be in the playoffs. That loss was big for Alabama in another way in that it was their first September loss in their last 20 efforts. Week 3 has been big, though, as they have won 6 in a row in this week. Road trips have been a problem, at least from a spread standpoint, as they are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 away from home. The OVER has hit in 5 of the last 7 games for the Crimson Tide.

Why bet on the USF Bulls

You look at the recent trends for the Bulls and it really is tough to find something that might compel you to throw some betting money in their direction. They have started the season at 1-1, which means that they have now gone just 1-11 SU in their last 12 games overall. The win streak, though, is almost certainly going to end at one, as you do get the feeling that they could be running into an Alabama team with a bit of a chip on their shoulder after losing to Texas last weekend. This will be an exercise in keeping things respectable for the Bulls, who lost 40-17 the last time they faced Alabama. They have, though, covered just once in their last 6 games at home. In games against teams from the SEC, USF saw the OVER hit in their last 5.

Expert Pick and Series Prediction

I have a feeling that the Crimson Tide are going to want to come out and make a statement after their loss last week, which could be bad news for the Bulls. I am taking Alabama to win and cover, and I also like the OVER.
