Our NCAAF Pick does not matter where the committee of thirteen places the Crimson Tide. We have a battle that should decide the SEC West. LSU comes in without a blemish and sporting one of the best backs in America. Bama has fallen to Ole Miss and can not afford another loss to keep their elite status. Linesmakers clearly side with the Tide donning them seven point favorites. Join HRWager as we break down which side the smart money will fall upon here.
NCAAF Pick : The Second Level
Let everyone try to break down the LSU rushing attack against the Crimson Tide defense. LSU has the advantage but not in the pure matchup sense. Saban can not afford to sell out to commit the stopping the ground game because of the prowess of Brandon Harris. Over one thousand yards in the air with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions gives the Tigers enough credible balance to overload an already stressed Alabama squad. So with the Tide unable to harness LSU then it must resort to matching them drive for drive in this one.
Jacob Coker is Not Enough
A game manager with the Tide’s rushing game would normally be enough. However, in an era where SEC defense is suffering, the Tigers have one of the better squads in years. Some are saying that Alabama just does not need to make mistakes. This is faulty and where the Tigers have the advantage. They can crowd the line in situations that the Tide can not on their defense.
When it comes down to jail break ability and multi faceted attacks, LSU is a light year ahead here. Their defense is better. Physically Alabama has no peer but that is not enough here. The Tide need to walk a tight rope to high in this one. They will fall so bet the LSU ML for that extra love from the linesmakers.
