Who’s going to stop the Alabama Crimson Tide? We know it’s not the LSU Tigers, who got steamrolled by the top-ranked team in the nation last Saturday. The Crimson Tide clinched a spot in the SEC title game thanks to that victory and they will next face the Mississippi State Bulldogs, who will be the latest team to take a shot at doing what is seemingly the impossible task of beating Nick Saban and his boys. Alabama is current priced at -350 to win the 2019 College Football Championship, with Clemson (also undefeated) nipping at their heels.

Betting on the Mississippi State Bulldogs (5-4 Overall / 1-4 Conference)
The Bulldogs had a cakewalk of a game last Saturday, blowing the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs out of the water in a 45-3 win at home. Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald could have played with his eyes closed and still have a solid output against Louisiana Tech’s pathetic defense. The dual-threat signal-caller had 243 passing yards with zero interceptions and rushed 18 times for 107 yards. Mississippi State’s offense begins and ends with Fitzgerald, but he’ll have to get help because Alabama’s unforgiving defense definitely has put a big neon target on his back. Running backs Aeris Williams and Kylin Hill are the team’s most productive rushers not name Nick Fitzgerald, so they should be able to find a way to contribute to take some pressure off of their quarterback. On paper, Mississippi State isn’t too shabby defensively with just 14.6 points and 288 total yards allowed per game, both ranked fifth in the nation.
Mississippi State is 5-5 ATS in its last 10 road games against the Crimson Tide.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (9-0 Overall / 6-0 Conference)
Alabama was supposed to be heavily tested by LSU, but that was not the case last Saturday. Alabama, boasting an unstoppable offense and an incredibly stout defense downed the Tigers, 29-0. A shutout win against the third-ranked team in the nation – in Baton Rouge. Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw his first interception of the season in the LSU game, but that was an insignificant blemish in his overall body of work, finishing the contest with 295 passing yards and two touchdowns on 25-of-42 completions. Running back Damien Harries looked comfortable in rushing the ball with 107 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Tagovailoa is too smart and too precise for opponents to bottle up for an entire game, and if LSU could not contain him, what’s there to stop anyone from saying he’ll dominate Mississippi State? Tagovailoa aside, the Bulldogs probably have to worry about Alabama’s defense first. Alabama, which is allowing just 15.9 points and 309.2 total yards per game, had five sacks against LSU.
The over is 3-1 in Alabama’s last four home games.
Alabama wins, 31-10.
