Sports gambling saw a rather anti-climatic national championship game as Nick Saban led Bama to a 37-21 win in the BCS sportsgambling title matchup with Texas. Nick Saban, in just his 3rd sports gambling season at the helm of the Crimson Tide, confirmed himself as the top coach in college football and his program as a likely sportsgambling dynasty for years to come.
Alabama was a “near miss” in the 2008 internet sports gambling season as they were undefeated before losing the SEC title game to eventual national champion Florida. This year they extracted sports gambling revenge over the Gators in an epic statement 32-13 in the SEC title game before handling Texas.
Nick Saban has built a sports gambling powerhouse based on a defense that is one of the best in college football. The Crimson Tide ranked 2nd in points allowed for the 2009 sports gambling campaign while ranking a solid 22nd in points for offense.
Alabama showed its sports gambling value on defense in the SEC title game win over Florida as they completely shut down and frustrated famed Gator quarterback Tim Tebow and coach Urban Meyer’s prolific spread attack.
So complete was Alabama’s sports gambling domination that Saban began receiving accolades right then and there as the best coach in the nation, which is quite a statement as Meyer has been in that conversation for quite some time.
Alabama has now gone 26-2 straight up in the past 2 sports gambling seasons while going a most profitable 18-10 against the spread. Their closest call during the 2009 season was against intra-state arch rival Auburn in the “Iron Bowl” as they had to come from behind with a late rally to win 26-21.
The game showed a side of the Tide that was unknown as little regarded quarterback Greg McElroy led the winning drive, which was built up the team’s confidence as they headed into the SEC showdown with then undefeated Florida. For Saban, there is never time to celebrate, however, as he is already looking ahead towards another title in 2010.
