NCAA Football Betting: UK Wildcats vs. Alabama Crimson Tide

The #2 Crimson Tide (5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS) host the Kentucky Wildcats (4-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) in its first SEC NCAA football betting home game of 2008.

Nick Saban’s second year at Alabama has shown why he was given the richest contract in NCAA Football history at the time. This week his Wildcats’ defense has been fantastic for gamblers who bet on college football ‘unders’, as they’ve allowed just 5.5 PPG after four games.

Alabama is coming off its second win against a Top 10 team already this season, a 41-30 beatdown of Georgia in which they were up 31-0 at half. Most pundits believed that without star QB Andre Woodson, the Wildcats would fade back into mediocrity but a 4-0 start to the season leaves Kentucky just two wins short of bowl eligibility.

They come into this game having won outright two of the last three games in which the NCAA betting line installed the Wildcats as road underdogs. However, Kentucky has a very poor history for college football betting fans who play the moneyline against Alabama, with an all-time record of 2-33-1 against the Crimson Tide.

WR Dicky Lyons has been the Kentucky offense’s best player this year catching 25 balls for 189 yards and a touchdown. Alabama has gone from unranked at the start of the season all the way up to #2 in the polls after only five weeks thanks to big wins away from home against Clemson and Georgia.

This team is loaded with young talent that was on display last Saturday night between the hedges, and #1 WR recruit Julio Jones didn’t disappoint with five catches for 94 yards and one sensational touchdown grab.

Their offensive explosion, 131 points over the last three weeks, has contributed to their last three games all going over the ‘total’ per the closing college football odds. In 20 matchups between these two teams in Tuscaloosa, the Tide are 19-0-1 SU, a sparkling record for Alabama fans and NCAA football betting followers who like taking home teams on the moneyline.

Currently, the NCAA lines find the Crimson Tide sitting as 16.5-point home favorites in this game. You can bet on this game and browse the NCAA football betting odds for all the other Week 6 games at Sports-Gambling, your home for sports betting in 2008.
