Bama vs FSU Preview

The Crimson Tide are favored by seven over a Seminole team that also has legitimate national title hopes. Alabama had a great deal of turnover defensively but return the bulk of their key offensive players. Among them are and SEC Offensive Player of the Year in Jalen Hurts and running back Bo Scarbrough. The Seminoles counter with quarterback Deondre Francois who I have rated as the second best quarterback in the ACC. Add that to a Florida State defense that will be one of the top units in the country and you have the making of a playoff run for the Seminoles.

Alabama vs Florida State Prediction:

These are two teams (of the four) I have money on to win the National Championship. Yes, I do have the loser of this game running the table and still making the playoffs but it will be far easier for the winner to make it. The big question in this game will be the Alabama defense. As long as I can get at least 7 points I am betting on the Seminoles to keep it close. I like the Tide to win it by four points or less. Do your line shopping because there are a few sportsbooks who have the Seminoles at +7.5 for reduced odds of -130.

Crimson Tide vs Seminoles Pick: FSU +7
