BIG AL's 41-15 ATS NCAA FOOTBALL TITLE GAME WINNER
Florida Gators (8-2) vs Alabama Crimson Tide (10-0)
Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 8:00 pm
At 8 pm, our selection is on the Florida Gators + the points over Alabama. The Gators suffered a huge upset loss last week when they fell, 37-34, at home vs. LSU. And Florida was favored by 24 points in that game! The knee-jerk reaction might be to go against Florida, and lay the points with Alabama. After all, the Crimson Tide currently have the best ATS (net profit) record in the country (tied with Coastal Carolina), at 8-2 ATS. But great point spread records don't equate with success in Title games, as teams with a .750 (or better) ATS record have only covered 40% of Conference Championship games. Additionally, .666 (or better) college football underdogs of more than 7 points, off an upset conference loss at home, have gone 41-15 ATS. And NCAA teams that gave up more than 31 points in defeat in their previous game, have covered the spread in 71% of Conference title games. Take Florida + the points. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
