Ohio State have high hopes that this season their third QB will be their talisman in the Sugar Bowl, leading them to a victory over Alabama, giving the team a place for the national championship. Price per head bookmaking companies would really like to see which team will be the one to come out on top in this highly anticipated showdown.
The Buckeyes used the services of Cardale Jones – a third-string QB – when they took out Wisconsin 59-0 in the championship game of the Big Ten, giving the team one last place in the field for playoffs. However, they’re set to have a very difficult battle when they face the Crimson Tide, who are the champions of the SEC, and who went 4-0 SU and ATS in the last four meetings that they had with teams in the Big Ten.
The betting line opened with Alabama as the favorites by nine points, and 58.5 was the total.
The offense that Ohio State has, and the way it works, is very efficient. Coach Urban Meyer is the one to lead the Buckeyes. He was the one who let Tim Tebow and Alex Smith turn into first-round draft picks in the NFL’s draft. Ohio State were undefeated, and at 8-0 they were able to fly through in the Big Ten.
It’s important to know that this team also went 12-0 moving into the championship game of the Big Ten last year, as well as in 2012. The very famous Meyer only ended up losing three meetings in the three years that he spent at Ohio State, and has plenty of knowledge when it comes to the SEC, as he used to coach Florida
Without Meyer leading the team, the Buckeyes would most likely not be in this position, and the coach is the reason whyOhio State have any opportunities to have a go at the national championship game.
The Crimson Tide’s Nick Saban could very well be the only coach in the nation with the chance of winning a key game with Meyer, as he was able to win two out of three career matchups between the two.
Alabama will be set to take on Ohio State’s offense with Jones at QB, and this season the Tide will be like nothing that was seen before by the Buckeyes. There’s a reason why the Tide are seeded at the top. Alabama will not back down in this meeting, and many experts and price per head bookmaking companies believe that the Tide will be the ones to win this game.
