Alabama Crimson Tide 2021-2022 Season
The Alabama Crimson Tide were ranked #14 in the preseason AP poll, and expectations were high for this squad. While they have slightly underperformed, they are still expected to make the NCAA Tournament and will have a chance at the national title come late March. Some of their key wins include wins against Gonzaga, Houston, Tennessee, Baylor, and Arkansas. They also have some losses that hurt their resume. These include losses to Georgia, Mississippi St., Missouri, and Davidson.
Alabama is looking forward to making noise in the SEC tournament, which tips off on March 9th. Winning this tournament will be a tall task given the strength of the conference, but a strong performance will get them a top 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama has one of the fastest and most efficient offenses in all of college basketball. This allows them to get ahead of their opponents and wear them out early. If you want to bet on Alabama, there are many ways to do so. If you live in a legal sports betting state, here are some of the bets you can make:
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. In most, if not every remaining game for the season, you can expect Alabama to be the favorite to win. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using an Alabama game against LSU.
- Alabama -140 moneyline
- LSU +120 moneyline
Alabama is the team favored to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Tennessee is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Alabama would have to bet $140 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $120 with a wager of $100 on LSU.
Alambama Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Alabama Crimson Tide. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Alabama vs. LSU matchup as an example.
- Alabama -2.5 (-120)
- LSU +2.5 (-105)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Alabama has to win by three or more points to beat this spread and LSU either has to win the game outright or lose by three points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Crimson Tide, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $120 risked. Someone betting on LSU would earn a profit of $100 for every $105 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Alabama vs. LSU at 149.5 points.
- Over 149.5 points (-108)
- Under 149.5 points (-112)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 149.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $108 to earn $100. Betting under 149.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $112 risked.
Alabama Prop Bets
For those Crimson Tide fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Alabama Futures Odds
If you like the Alabama Crimson Tide's odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds . A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. Currently the Tide are +1200 to make the Final Four and +6000 to win the NCAA Tournament.
