People really love betting big on Bama this year!

Just over a week after one bettor placed a six-figure bet on Alabama to win the National Championship, a bet that would net them over a million bucks if it hits, another huge wager has come in on the Crimson Tide, only this one is for their game against Texas.

One confident person plopped down $165,000 on Alabama to cover a -7.5-point spread against Texas. That means the bettor needs Alabama to beat the Longhorns by 8 or more points to win. If it does, the bettor will win $150,000, assuming they got -110 odds.

As for Alabama-Texas, BetSided college football betting expert Reed Wallach likes the UNDER as the best bet for this game. Here’s what he said in his full betting preview.

"I believe Alabama wants to muddy this game up and make it into a run-first grind of a game. While the offense may struggle to establish the run, I believe the team wants to keep Milroe’s passing out of harms way and play this game slow and try to win on the defensive side of the ball.All roads lead to the under in this marquee matchup."

Bama QB Jalen Milroe is facing the biggest test of his early career, so it makes sense that the coaching staff will create a game plan that limits his exposure and maximizes his (and the running back’s) ability to run the ball.

The OVER/UNDER has also moved from 55.5 points to start the week down to 53.5, which indicates most of the money is on the UNDER.

As for betting on Alabama’s spread, this bettor placed their bet when the line was Alabama -7.5. That line is now down to -7.

It’s the marquee game of the week and certainly has the makings of a thrilling showdown. Of course, this bettor would rather a Crimson Tide blowout, as would all Bama fans as well.
