(499) Ohio State vs. Alabama (500) 8:00 PM | Mon, Jan 11 2021
Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Score ALA 52 at OSU 24
9 OSU (-110) @ 888sport

The Buckeyes probably have the better defense in this matchup. After looking at the teams they have played it's clear about who has a better defense. Alabama faced a top-15 scoring offense – No. 14 Ole Miss and No. 13 Florida and in each game they allowed at least 46 points. Meanwhile, Ohio State just held the No. 5 scoring offense to 28 points which tells me that Ohio can handle a top offense and Bama cannot. They key in this game won't be stopping the air attack for Ohio, it will be stopping the run which Ohio can do. Bama controls games with the run not the bog play in the air. Once Ohio stuffs the run the tide shifts to Ohio. This game will come down to the last play of the game. Take Ohio plus the points!


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
