Iona Gaels vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Prop Bets - March Madness NCAA Tournament 2021

While it may be a stretch to think that the Iona Gaels can beat a very good Alabama Crimson Tide team that ranks 5th in the nation, the fact that Rick Pitino is coaching this Gaels squad does have its merits.  Remember too that this is an Alabama team that nearly lost to both Tennessee and LSU (in the final second) during tournament play.  Then again, they dismantled a Mississippi State team that has had their number, 85-48.  Bet this game at Jazz Sports now, offering tons of prop bets and a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000).

Why Iona Has a Shot at Covering the Spread

  • Gambling911.com suggests the line on this game is accurate at +17, but this line has actually been trending downward from +17.5 to +16.5.
  • Iona's recent two losses were within seven points, and that was upon returning from a one month plus absence.
  • The Gaels have arguably the most talented roster in the MAAC.
  • Iona managed to find a way to win six straight to close the season and secure the MAAC automatic bid after some early growing pains.

Reasons to Hesitate

  • Iona has played just one team ranked inside the top 150 in the country in Seton Hall, a game it lost by 22.
  • Alabama is no Seton Hall, they are ranked 5 in the nation.  They have great 3-point shooters and own the second-ranked defense in the country allowing just 86.0 points per every 100 possessions.
  • Iona is extremely turnover prone.

Early Action

The action on this game has been relatively balanced early on with Alabama seeing closer to 60% on both the spread and money line.
