He is the 2nd leading rusher on an offense that makes few mistakes, commits even fewer penalties, and turned the ball over just one time.
Betting Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide is heavy home chalk on the best betting sites. The currently-No. 2 ranked Crimson Tide barely made it out of Texas on the road last weekend. They left with a one-point win but lost the No. 1 spot and now face question marks on offense.
Alabama Crimson hasn’t lost a home game since November 2019. Bryce Young has completed 67.2% of his passes for 407 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions.
Traeshon Holden and Kobe Prentice have a total of 196 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Jahmyr Gibbs has 10 catches. The Alabama Crimson Tide running game averages 219.5 yards per game. Young has 138 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Alabama allows 9.5 points and 253.5 yards per game.

Alabama is 1-7 ATS in their last eight games played in week 3. The total has gone UNDER in five of Alabama’s last seven games played on a Saturday. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Alabama’s last nine games played on a Saturday when at home.
The absence of a game-breaking wide receiver threat still lingers from the Tide’s one-point win at Texas last week. Bama has just three pass catchers over 50 yards on the season, and one is a running back (Jahmyr Gibbs).
Bryce Young doesn’t have a TO and is connecting on 67.2% of his passes, and he is also the team’s top rusher. All in all, the backfield is good for almost eight yards per carry and it should reach the end zone this week against ULM’s wobbly run defense.
Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Pick
The Alabama Crimson Tide has covered the spread in their last three games as a favorite of at least 40 points. That includes a cover this season against Utah State. The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks are no match for Alabama in this game on either ofense or defense. Like Ringo Starr, they’re just happy to be there.
