College football fans and bettors are used to seeing Alabama play on New Year’s Eve, but this year is a little different.

The Crimson Tide take on the Kansas State State Wildcats in the 2022 Sugar Bowl instead of a College Football Playoff semifinal, which has been the norm for Nick Saban’s program.

As a result, motivation could be a factor for a team that always expects to be in the national championship picture, but isn’t this year, especially as a favorite.

To ensure we’re not going too far down the narrative rabbit hole to make our college football picks, let’s rely on data, and data alone.

To do this, I looked at the Action Network’s College Football PRO Projections, which are showing valuable betting opportunities on both the spread and total for Alabama vs. Kansas State in Saturday’s Sugar Bowl.
