Why Bet on the Alabama Crimson Tide?

Bryce Young won the 2021 Heisman Trophy. This season, he suffered through a shoulder injury that affected his overall performance.

Young is healthy enough to play in the Sugar Bowl and has decided to suit up. Young will hand the ball off to Jahmyr Gibbs, one of the best running backs in the nation. Young, when he was healthy, and Gibbs, are the reasons the Tide averaged over 40 points per game.

Young won’t opt-out and neither will Bama’s top defensive player. Most believe Will Anderson is the NFL’s number one draft pick.

Anderson led Bama with 10 sacks. He’s a great defensive end. Because of Anderson’s efforts, the Tide held opponents to 186 passing yards per game.

Why Bet on the Kansas State Wildcats?

Starting quarterback Will Howard doesn’t have a great completion percentage at 61.6%. The reason is because Howard throws away a lot of balls.

Will tossed 15 TDs to just 2 interceptions in 164 attempts. Howard took over for Adrian Martinez in the win against Baylor after Martinez suffered a leg injury.

Deuce Vaughn is the key to the offense. K-State’s RB1 averages 5.3 yards per carry. The Wildcats averaged 209.6 rushing yards per game and over 33 points each contest.

K-State’s defense allowed 20.1 points per game. The Wildcats didn’t always keep teams off the scoreboard.

But there were games where the D stepped up big time. Oklahoma State laid a goose egg, Iowa State scored just 9, and Baylor scored a field goal.

Felix Anudike led the team with 8.5 sacks. Julius Brents had 3 picks.

  • Over is 4-1 in Kansas State’s last 5 following a straight up win.

Alabama vs. Kansas State Expert Betting Predictions

Both of Alabama’s star players will suit up and throw down, but for how long? Will Anderson has one-foot out the door. So motivation may not be there.

Bryce Young saw what happened to Grace McCall when he played for Coastal Carolina in the Chanticleers’ bowl game. McCall got hurt.

Young won’t take the chance of getting hurt no matter what his head coach says. Also, even if Young plays, he must throw the ball to freshman wide receivers because Bama’s starters have opted-out.

K-State shows no opt-outs on their side. Another positive note for the Wildcats is that head coach Chris Kleiman has a plan to use Adrian Martinez if Martinez is healthy enough to play.

The former Nebraska QB is a top dual-threat. So mixing it up with Martinez and Howard could lead to success against a Bama defense that allows over 125 yards rushing each game.

Only one thing motivates Alabama, conference and national titles. K-State will be all out to win this. Taking the points makes sense.
