Alabama Crimson Tide National Championship Odds
The Alabama Crimson Tide finished as the national runners-up in 2018, but for the best college football program in the country, it was a disappointment. Alabama returns star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and even despite the departure of many stars, there is more talent waiting in the wings. Alabama is expected to once again be on the short list of elite teams in 2019.
Tagovailoa was the runner-up to Kyler Murray in the Heisman Trophy race a season ago and has already been listed as the favorite. He is expected to head to the NFL after the season so Alabama will aim to send him out in style with a national title.
2019 Alabama Crimson Tide at a Glance
Crimson Tide National Championship Odds: 5/2
Crimson Tide Odds To Win SEC: -160
Crimson Tide Regular Season Win Total: 11
Alabama is the favorite to win the national title once again, and has the highest over/under win total in the country. The Crimson Tide certainly lost some key players, including defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, offensive tackle Jonah Williams, running back Josh Jacobs, tight end Irv Smith and others. However, the return of Tagovailoa should make sure that the offense doesn’t take a step back, as he will be able to help the learning curve for the new pieces offensively.
Alabama reloads on defense every year as it always picks up great recruiting classes and gets top-notch coaching from Nick Saban and his assistants. Linebacker Dylan Moses should lead the way for that talented group. Backup quarterback Jalen Hurts transferred so there is less depth at the position, which could be an issue in case of injury.
Alabama has a tough SEC schedule once again, as it is the most talented conference in college football. Even so, this team stands above the rest when it comes to overall team ability and it would be a surprise to see anyone other than the Crimson Tide come out on top in the conference this year.

Saban’s tenure in Tuscaloosa is wiping out memories of Paul “Bear” Bryant and what he accomplished. Success on the gridiron isn’t just reserved for those two, however. Under Wallace Wade in the 1920s, the program exploded. Wade led the Tide to three undefeated seasons and three Rose Bowl appearances with two victories in his eight seasons.
Bryant took over in 1958 following the worst stretch in the program’s history. In three seasons prior to his arrival, the Tide went a combined 4-24-2 with the only winless campaign in 1955. In his quarter century at the helm, Bryant won 232 games and never had a losing season. On 13 occasions the Tide won at least 10 games, and that was back when teams played a maximum of 12 contests. Bryant led the Tide to five national championships and his teams finished ranked in the top-10 a total of 19 times.
There was intermittent success under a variety of coaches following Bryant. Gene Stallings won a national championship in 1992 going 13-0. The program became what we know today after Saban was lured to campus following a failed stint in the NFL. He is 141-20 in his 13 years at Alabama with six of those losses coming in his first season. Saban has led Alabama to 11 consecutive top-10 finishes and in each of those seasons the Tide has been ranked No. 1 at some point. His unparalleled run of success is expected to continue in 2019 as Alabama makes another push for a national championship.
