Alabama Opens As 14-Point Favorite Over Oklahoma

Early odds are out, and Oklahoma is a heavy underdog against Alabama in the College Football Playoff.

The College Football Playoff is set, and Oklahoma will face Alabama in the Orange Bowl on December 29.¬†Oklahoma’s elite offense against Alabama’s elite offense, the duel between Heisman favorites Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa, and then the coaching matchup, Lincoln Riley versus Nick Saban.

However, Vegas doesn’t think the game will be all that close as Alabama opens up as a 14-point favorite.

I would take the Sooners and the points, because keep telling them they don’t have a chance and see how that works out for you. Being a heavy underdog allows the Sooners to come out with nothing to lose and everything to prove, and nobody wants to face Oklahoma in that situation. Not even Alabama. Just ask the 2014 Sugar Bowl.
