The ticket market is already heating up for Alabama vs. Ohio State, and the gambling odds are now up over at our partners at FanDuel:
This means that Alabama is favored by 7.5 points. Taking a look at the moneyline, this implies that FanDuel believes Alabama has about a 72 percent chance of winning the game outright.
After the way Ohio State moved the ball against Clemson, and the way the Buckeyes’ defensive line battered Trevor Lawrence, I’m a little bit surprised that the line is this high. It just goes to show the respect that is out there in the marketplace for the juggernaut that Nick Saban has built in Tuscaloosa.
