Alabama Has History On Its Side In SEC Title Game

Alabama has yet to bleed any of its crimson blood so far this season, as the Tide have been steamrolling their competition. If recent history is any indication, the Crimson Tide may do the same when they take on the Florida Gators in the SEC championship game Saturday. Alabama has won the past five meetings against Florida, with each victory coming by at least 14 points.

Shark Bites
  • Alabama is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games against Florida.
  • Alabama is 16-0 SU in its last 16 games against the SEC.
  • The total has gone UNDER in Florida's last 5 games.

Alabama’s defense is coming off one of the most dominant months in college football history, as it did not allow a single touchdown in the past four games while only allowing two trips into the red zone. Jalen Hurts continued to show poise beyond his years in the Iron Bowl, as the freshman didn’t allow two first-half interceptions to rattle him en route to a three-touchdown performance. Though you would like to see some more downfield throws from the ’Bama offense, you simply can’t argue with results.

Florida’s offense came out flat last week after the Gators clinched a berth in the SEC title game the week before, totaling just 205 yards and 13 points against Florida State. That was the fifth time this season Florida’s offense has accumulated less than 300 yards in a game. The Gators defense has continued to be one of the best in the SEC, holding opponents to 14.6 points per game this season, which is the fifth-best in the nation.
