4. Alabama money line and both teams score 30 or more
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Here’s where this gets on the contradictory side.
The belief here is that Ohio State pulls this off, however, would I be the slightest bit shocked if Alabama won? Of course not – this is as much of a toss-up as it gets, even if the world is doing you a solid by handing you the Buckeyes and 8.5 points.
And, fair warning, this exact same top prop bet will come up to the Big Ten side in just a moment. However, if you think Alabama is going to win, this is one of the few ways you’ll be able to find a little bit of value.
There’s no point in taking the Tide on the money line – they’re -315. There isn’t enough skin in the game to make ML the call, especially since Ohio State is just that good to pull it off.
However, add in the potential of each team scoring over 30, and all of a sudden Alabama on the money line plus there’s a swing of 470 going the other way.
Again, this is only if you’re a Bama believer and you think this will be a shootout. Now to totally contradict a key element of this, when it comes to the investment belief systems …
