The No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (+225 to win the national title), fresh off a big win in Atlanta last week, will be handed yet another minnow for their next game. In their first game in Tuscaloosa this year, the Crimson Tide will host the New Mexico State Aggies, who are looking like sacrificial lambs for Alabama, considering how they performed in Week 1.

Betting on the New Mexico State Aggies (0-1 Overall / 0-0 Conference)
New Mexico was beaten to a pulp in Week 1, as the Aggies took a 58-7 road loss to No. 23 Washington State Cougars. The Aggies were simply no match to Washington State, who took its foot off the pedal a bit when its lead was too large for New Mexico State to overcome. Only when the Cougars relaxed were the Aggies managed to pile up most of their measly total of 317 yards. Quarterback Josh Adskins provided the only play New Mexico State students can watch with a smile before dozing off on Saturday night. Adkins scored a short 3-yard touchdown in the opening quarter. It will take a miracle for the Aggies to beat Alabama, but they should have enough in their armory to at least cover their huge 33-point spread as underdogs. They can start by being wiser in their decision-making on offense after committing three turnovers against the Cougars.
The total has gone under in all of the Aggies’ last four road games.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (1-0 Overall / 0-0 Conference)
We all knew this was coming: that the Crimson Tide will play with some extra fire in their very first game of the 20-19 NCAAF season. After getting embarrassed by the Clemson Tigers at the national title game, the Crimson Tide spent had to wait months to get back on the field and kick off their revenge tour. They started it last week by bringing down the Duke Blue Devils to the tune of a 42-3 win. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa looked every bit the future No. 1 overall NFL pick, as he passed for 336 yards and four touchdowns with zero interceptions on 26 of 31 completed passes. Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy obliterated every man Duke sent his way to cover him, finishing with 137 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 catches. Based on how New Mexico State defended against the Cougars, it’s not going to be surprising if Tagovailoa and company put up ridiculous numbers in Tuscaloosa this coming weekend.
The Crimson Tide are 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last four home games.
Alabama wins, 63-6.
