Well, we’ve all seen this song and dance before, and we know how this movie ends. You know the last time Alabama was an underdog?

In the SEC title game against the Bulldogs. Do you all need a refresher on what happened in that matchup? The Crimson Tide absolutely decimated Kirby Smart and his team.

It was a butt kicking for the ages, and do we all know why? Well, whenever Nick Saban can convince his players they’re underdogs and nobody respects them, they tend to blow teams out.

Now, oddsmakers have done it again and made them underdogs by a field goal. If you don’t think Saban won’t bring this up every hour until kickoff, you’re insane.

Alabama being an underdog is the biggest gift imaginable for Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide. They don’t even have to pretend to like the world doesn’t respect them.

The oddsmakers made it clear they don’t!

January 11 is going to be a hell of a fun night, and I like Alabama’s chances!
