Danny Burke: Both teams are feeling pretty good considering they both hung a 50 burger (and up) in Week 1. The only difference is that one of the teams scored that without scoring the entire fourth quarter, oh, and they knocked out their opponent.

That team, of course, would be the Crimson Tide of Alabama. I’m not someone who spreads big, nor am I someone who wants to bet on a top team that everyone and their moms are betting on, but this is a unique situation.

Earlier this season, we found that Alabama is far better than almost every team in college football (except maybe a few).

The good news for Nick Saban is that Texas isn’t one of the exceptions.

Yes, the Longhorns’ expectations should be set higher. Yes, they may have a top QB in the country in Quinn Ewers, along with a star running back in Bijan Robinson. However, it’s only week 2 and these two boys will be put to the absolute test against what may be the most dominant defense in the country. Ewers might have a few good plays to cause a stir, but ultimately he’ll fold against this deadly Crimson Tide defense.

On the other hand, Bryce Young shouldn’t have many hiccups against this Longhorns defense. Young’s offensive line will protect him and the skill players will make the necessary moves to create space.

Again, I don’t like laying big spreads, but getting the Crimson Tide as a under-three touchdown favorite this season can have a premium. So I’ll take advantage of it while I can.

Choose: Alabama-20
