The defending champs are laying almost 40 points in college football odds as they host San Jose State.
There is no doubt that Alabama is going to beat San Jose State, the question is whether or not they will cover the college football betting lines.
College football odds list Alabama as a 38.5 point favorite vs. San Jose State on Saturday. The Spartans are not going to win against the Crimson Tide so the question becomes can they score a touchdown or not?
San Jose State has a veteran quarterback in Jordan La Secla so perhaps he won’t be terrified of facing Alabama’s defense. The problem for the Spartans is that La Secla wasn’t very good last season. He threw more interceptions than touchdown passes. If he turns the ball over against Alabama then the Spartans are going to get humiliated.
Will San Jose State Score: The Spartans were the third-worst team in all of college football on offense last season at 13.8 points per game? Can they score at all against Alabama? It seems unlikely they will do anything against Alabama’s defense. The Crimson Tide won’t have as good a defense as they did a year ago but it seems unlikely that San Jose State will get more than 10 points and there is a chance they may not get more than three. There is also a chance they get nothing.
Alabama’s Offense: The strength of Alabama this season is going to be their offense. And no, San Jose State is not going to slow them down. This game should be over by the half. Eight starters return on offense including Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, backup Trent Richardson and quarterback Greg McElroy. They are going to have a field day against San Jose State for as long as they play.
Alabama Will Roll: The Tide has a young defense that is not going to be as good as last year’s squad. You won’t notice it much on Saturday against a rotten San Jose State team. Alabama could still get a shutout in this game because the Spartans are not very good. Laying almost 40 points is tough to do when you make a college football wager at the Sbg sportsbook but you sure can’t take San Jose State in this game.
