The Alabama Crimson Tide are trying to pick up the form after unimpressive performances in the last couple of weeks. The game against the New Mexico State Aggies is a perfect opportunity for that.
Alabama Crimson Tide Stats & Form
As usual, Alabama (8-1) is one of the top teams in the country always targeting the championship trophy. Their recent form is not on the highest level which worries head coach Nick Saban. Last week the Crimson Tide barely won over a 29.5 point underdog LSU which is not a good sign for a team that is trying to repeat as national champions.
Their running game basically did not exist in a 20-14 win over LSU with the lead in jeopardy until the last minute. Bryce Young was the key player for Alabama passing for 302 yards completing 24 of 37 passes with a couple of touchdowns, including a 58-yarder to Jameson Williams.

Alabama Crimson Tide – New Mexico State Betting Tip & Prediction
There is no doubt who is going to win this match which at times might look like a scrimmage but the real question is if the Crimson Tide can cover the largest spread set this season at 51.5 points. Their largest win came against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles at 49 points margin.
The Aggies are basically underdogs in almost every game they play but they are 5-3 covering the spread against them this season.
Sagan will probably use some new faces in Saturday’s game which will provide an opportunity for New Mexico State to score and that will be enough to cover the spread.
