      Is Flr Atl even going to be on the field...

How about we dress up a bunch of chimps...put the helmets on & let them run all over the field...at least it would be entertaining..

I agree but they will cover it because they are home and lsu is going to keep the pressure on 70-3 final score

Bama can name the score on this one, and will.  Total wipeout.  Georgia put up 713 yards offense and played the 2nd and 3rd units all but one series after halftime.  Averaged 11 yards a play for the game, FA has no defense against the run or pass.

Defense gave up fourteen points with 4 defensive starters (including Jarvis Jones on the sidelines), othe rscore was a Pick 6 from the backup QB.  Alabama cannot help but drill them badly, even trying to hold it down.   Don't know if I would play a line like this, but I would lean with The Tide to cover because they easily can and they have to be concerned about the polls in case they stumble somewhere.

      I try to remain objective when backing the chalk. And for me, the bet has to make itself. How good is 'Bama? Hell, son -fret none- they're much better than the 50 they are asking to lay. I also like that they're trying to stay at #1 ,with LSU breathing down their necks. I like their take no prisoners attitude.  Let's here it: ROLL TIDE!

ALABAMA - 50

this is the smartest bet
and to the guy that beleived the tide will roll

well...... and just because saban its not interested in destroying this poor piss lowly teams, he never does, he knows its time to care of players, and give playing time to bakc ups and scrubs, so bama by 28-31pts by half then maybe 2 more tds in the 2..but mostly will be all  milking the clock on 2h...and FAU will also play to not get anyone hurt and not to be blown out by too much----

remember people--saban only destroys teams that matter

Why do they even bother scheduling these kind of games?

Let's assume that in terms of skill differential and making plays, FAU is equivalent to a bunch of chimps on the field. Now if we had an NFL team facing the chimps, would they go ahead and win 112-0 or would they run up the middle and stumble after 4 yards every play to keep the clock rolling?

I have seen quite some horror plays in the NFL such as punting on 4th and 2 from the other teams' 40 or kick a field goal on 4th and Goal from inside the half yard line.

I'm not playing the game at 50 but that said my max play is normally 3 units and i'm in for anything under 27.5. 

Bama just doesn't have any "scrubs" and most of the 2s & 3s have been getting a ton quality snaps every game.

I know you all gonna think im crazy but when a team is favored by 49 and the total is 58. This leaves no room for an error. Last time i checked all the players ion the field are human. Bama will make 1 mistake or Fla Atlantic will make 1 lucky play. can you say 50-7 and u lose on side and total.. be careful of bama and the over

saban loves to run up the score, but generally lets off the pedal if the score has already been run up by halftime. if it's a 17 pt game with 30 seconds left and bama has the ball in the redzone... you better believe saban will punch it in cause that's the kind of fool he is.

Bama will not score more than 7 TD's this game. Saban will rest his starters after halftime because they'll have a comfortable lead. Bama has never run up a score passed 50 against a non-conference opponent since the beginning of Saban's career. I agree that FAU shouldn't be scheduled at all as a worthy opponent for a powerhouse team like Bama. However, if your allergic to your bank accounts and whats in it then go with Bama.  Otherwise play smart and win with FAU!!!!
