Gambling911.com has everything you need to know when it comes to betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide this season including the best odds, futures and bookies edge.

2017-2018 Futures

The Crimson Tide were coming in as the favorite to win the 2018 NCAA Football Championship game early at 5-1 odds.   They were priced somewhat generously at -160 to win the SEC Conference.  Bo Scarbrough was listed at 14-1 odds to win the Heisman Trophy. At the time this was going to press, regular season win total odds were not yet available.

Preview

Alabama hired Brian Daboll, former tight ends coach for the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, as its offensive coordinator.  He technically replaces Lane Kiffin (with an interim separating the two).  Daboll’s hiring should result in little disruption at this position.

There’s a lot to like about Bama in 2017. A lot. Consider the sour taste this program likely has in its mouth from losing a national title game with one second to play. Then consider the fact it had a new offensive coordinator in that game, a freshman quarterback who was not fazed and a running back who, if healthy, will legitimately challenge for the Heisman Trophy in 2017.

Yeah, the Crimson Tide will be just fine. They have won the last three SEC titles, made the College Football Playoff in every year of its existence and have a potential long-term leader under center. The only thing slowing them down could be complacency, and luckily for them, they have a head coach whose M.O. is essentially to combat that. Doing so will be a little bit easier this time around, too, without a championship ring to show for the 2016 season.      

2017 Schedule

Sept. 2: Florida State (Atlanta) – Great game to kick off the season and likely the most wagered on for Week 1.  This could very well prove to be Bama’s toughest opponent as FSU has the 3rd shortest odds after Ohio State to win the Football Championship. 

Sept. 9: Fresno State

Sept. 16: Colorado State

Sept. 23: at Vanderbilt

Sept. 30: Ole Miss

Oct. 7: at Texas A&M

Oct. 14: Arkansas

Oct. 21: Tennessee

Nov. 4: LSU – This Tigers team was expected to have another solid season.

Nov. 11: at Mississippi State

Nov. 18: Mercer

Nov. 25: at Auburn – With 20/1 early odds of winning the College Football Championship, this Iron Bowl game should be another competitive matchup.

Dec. 2: SEC Championship Game

NFL Betting – Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A crucial battle in the NFC hits the Monday Night Football stage when the Los Angeles Rams visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coming off a win over division-leading Seattle, the Rams can move into a share of first-place in the NFC West with a win. Meanwhile, the Bucs are battling with New Orleans for supremacy in the NFC South, rebounding from a disastrous loss to the Saints with a payout last week over Carolina. We probably won’t see a shootout like we did last season between these clubs with both having a top-5 defense, but you never know.
