The Alabama football program is once again expected to contend for a national championship in 2018. But just how good will the Crimson Tide be? According to one college football and gambling expert, you can expect to see Nick Saban’s squad posting a perfect record during the upcoming season.
VegasInsider.com‘s Brian Edwards predicted the Crimson Tide will go 12-0.
“The only potential hiccup games are at LSU and Auburn,” Edwards said, via SEC Country. “I think it’s a two-game season. Now, stuff happens. Maybe they get some injuries or suspensions and that changes things, but I really think it’s a two-game season for ‘Bama.”
If that turns out to be true, we can expect to see Alabama once again contending for a national title as one of the final four teams in the College Football Playoff.
As things currently stand, the Crimson Tide have -220 odds to reach the postseason so they are practically a shoe-in.
Of course, in the college football world, anything is possible.
