Alabama’s ATS Record As Small Fave Is Not Great

The Alabama Crimson Tide have seemingly been on top of the college football world forever. No matter how many players graduate, no matter how many freshmen need to step into a big role, Alabama is always one of the best teams in the nation.

However, there is one area the team has struggled in for bettors, which is as a single-digit favorite. Since the start of the 2010 season, Alabama has been a single-digit fave 27 times. In those games, the Tide are a respectable 19-8 SU, but a mere 10-16-1 ATS.

The bulk of those losing ways came during a span that stretched from the end of the 2012 season to the start of the 2014 season when Alabama went 0-6-1 ATS as a single-digit favorite.

Nick Saban and company are listed as a 1.5-point favorite for their Sugar Bowl matchup with Clemson
