Result: Loss

We are taking ALABAMA here. Yeah, I will lay this hefty number. I get it. Bama won't be motivated. They lost to Utah outright after losing their last SEC championship game. Look. Totally different scenarios. First. 'Bama was a dog to Florida that year. And Utah, an undefeated BCS buster was looking to 'prove' something. Saban's crew is now 4-0 SU/ATS since that Utah loss in bowl action. Now, Oklahoma has nothing to prove. They are a perennial top 10 team. On the flip side, I think the Tide are chompin' at the bit to get back on the field after the way it all went down on the FG-TD play. Bottom line here is that Bama is deeper and more talented. They can easily take away the run happy Sooner attack. Oklahoma isn't a good catch-up team this year. Too shaky at QB for my liking. And that is exactly why I am all over Alabama here. QB McCarron is 36-3 SU in his career with b2b rings. You think he wants to lay an egg here? This team will rally around their senior QB and put a hurting here on Stoops troops. 5* Best Bet ALABAMA
