If you love the perennially-powerful Alabama Crimson Tide, then the 2018 campaign ended on a bummer as the Clemson Tigers laid an emphatic 44-16 smackdown on Nick Saban’s team to win last season’s national championship. Still, with two titles in hand in the last four seasons and five national championship wins since 2009, clearly the Tide are a program to be reckoned with each and every year.
Will Alabama get back on top of the college football universe this coming season or will the Tide come up short of their national championship hopes once again? No matter what happens, you’re going to find out just how Alabama is going to fare against their 2019 NCAAF win total odds right now.

Why Bet On Alabama To Go Over 11 Wins?
The best reason to back Alabama to top their win total odds of 11 victories is because the Tide have won 12 games or more in each of the last five seasons and seven times in the last eight seasons overall. More importantly, Alabama has a flat-out star returning in starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa after he threw for 3,966 yards with 43 touchdowns and just six interceptions last season. In addition to that, Alabama also returns talented running back Najee Harris, three starters on the offensive line and their entire receiving core, including breakout star Jerry Jeudy.
While the Crimson Tide lost some talent on the defensive side of the ball in Quinnen Williams, Mack Wilson and Deionte Thompson among others, replacing elite defensive starters and keeping his team at or near the top of every defensive statistical category, certainly hasn’t been absolutely no problem for Nick Saban during his tenure with the school. Besides, with another one of the nation’s best recruiting classes coming in, what’s to worry about?
Why Bet On Alabama To Go Under 11 Wins?
The best (only?) reason to back Alabama to finish with less than 10 wins would be because Tua Tagovailoa suffers an untimely injury like he did when he suffered a ankle injury in last season’s SEC title game. Outside of that, I guess you could pick the Tide to get upset by one of their SEC rivals like LSU or Auburn, but really, there just aren’t many good reasons to pick Alabama to not win all 12 of their regular season contests.
I’m going with Alabama to avoid a regular season loss to reach a dozen victories. Yes, the Tide have dropped one game in each of the last four seasons while dropping two in both, 2013 and 2014, but I’m thinking their title game loss to Clemson to capp off last season is going to make the Tide come out of the gate seriously focused in 2019!
