Alabama seeks 13th straight win at home

scarbrough_alabama

The Alabama Crimson Tide re-established themselves as the best team in the nation last Saturday with a convincing 24-7 win over the Florida State Seminoles. The Crimson Tide have a much easier task at hand this Saturday hosting the Fresno State Bulldogs.

Shark Bites
  • Fresno State is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games.
  • Alabama is 27-1 SU in its last 28 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of Alabama’s last seven games at home.

Alabama is 12-0 SU and 6-6 ATS in its last 12 games at home. Needless to say, a team with Alabama’s talent and depth can essentially pick its score against opponents like this. But Nick Saban hasn’t shown any real interest in embarrassing inferior teams as a huge favorite. The Crimson Tide are just 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite of 34 points or more.

On the other hand, Fresno State doesn’t instil much confidence as a road underdog. The lowly Bulldogs are 1-11 SU and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games as one since the start of the 2015 season.

This game will mark the fifth time that the Bulldogs have faced an SEC team since 2006. Fresno State is 0-4 SU and ATS over that stretch, including a 73-21 loss on the road against Mississippi in 2015.
