Alabama is favored to beat Utah in the Allstate Sugar Bowl by as many as 10.5 points. Some oddsmakers have the line set as low as 9.5.
‘Bama is 9-4 against the spread (ATS) this season and 1-1 ATS at neutral sites. The Tide handily covered the spread vs. Clemson in its season-opener in the Georgia Dome and just missed covering it vs. Florida in that venue’s SEC Championship.
Utah is 7-4 against the spread this year and has played no neutral site-games (No official lines were set for the Utes’ matchup vs. D1-AA Weber State).
This will be the first college football game ever played between Alabama and Utah.
