Bowl dogs of 7 points or more are a PERFECT 7-0 ATS if they won more than 92% of their games and allowed fewer than 15 points per game...The Irish are 12-0 and have allowed around 10. Not only that all 7 won SU....
I agree that Bama looks too good to be true but it's VERY hard to cover in 3 BCS matches in 4 years. History tells us each win gets more and more difficult. At some stage you figure they will end up in a close one.Maybe tonight's the night?
Also 40 years ago the Irish won 24-23 and history has a strange way of repeating itself. The cappers that point out the Tide are better on both sides of the ball are correct, but games are not played out on paper. All the pressure is on Alabama tonight and while they have won big games before its still very difficult as I said to win 3 out of 4 titles. The longer the Irish can hang the more pressure the Tide will feel.
Not only that if the Irish go up early Bama may panic Afterall their players and Nick Saban are human...Lot of respected cappers on Bama and I see why but I am playing the Irish. I think 10 points is a lot to give a decent defence....
