Florida is the next team in line to give Alabama their best shot. The Gators take on the Crimson Tide for the SEC Championship. According to OddsShark, Alabama heads to Atlanta as a 24-point favorite.
The over-under is set at 41 points. Alabama has been a solid 8-4 against the spread this season while Florida has gone just 5-6. While the OddsShark computer does not expect a close game, the projections have Florida as the pick against the spread.
The computer projects a 41-18.6 Alabama win over Florida. The computer is taking the Gators against the spread and the over on the point total.
This is one of the more anti-climatic conference championship matchups on Saturday. Alabama is the only undefeated Power Five team and is likely in the College Football Playoff even with an upset loss to Florida.
There is no question that Alabama is the better team, but Florida has a lot more to play for than the Crimson Tide. While an SEC Championship is important, a College Football Playoff is valued more.
Florida has the defense to allow them to hang around for a bit. The problem is they do not have the offense needed to match Alabama’s offensive balance. Look for Alabama to win the game, but Florida is the pick against the spread.
Heavy’s Pick: Alabama 31 Florida 14. Florida +24. Over on the Point Total.
