ESPN Says Winner Of Alabama vs LSU Is Obvious

ESPN says the winner of Alabama vs LSU is obvious, and that all the people expecting a close game are in for disappointment.

Alabama and LSU are set to square off on Nov. 9, and many believe that the winner of that match-up will go on to win the National Title.

Fans initially expected it to be a fun chess match with Nick Saban and Ed Orgeron utilizing their Heisman-level quarterbacks against All American-level defense.

Unfortunately, with Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffering an ankle sprain in the team’s win over Tennessee this past weekend, that is suddenly in doubt.

Tagovailoa has been ruled out for the Crimson Tide’s upcoming bout versus Arkansas, but he is reportedly informing teammates that he will be back in time for LSU.

Tagovailoa’s uncertain status coupled with the NFL-caliber play of Joe Burrow seems like it should be a recipe for odds makers liking LSU in this one – but that is not the case.

According to ESPN, Alabama is still the overwhelming favorite in this game.

“ESPN’s computer model believes that Alabama has control of the game. The computer model gives the Crimson Tide a 71.0 percent chance to beat the LSU Tigers,” ESPN reports.

Before Alabama and LSU square off in a battle of undefeateds, though, each team still has to get past Arkansas and No. 9 Auburn, respectively.
