Alabama is wrecking everything in its path this season, and the Buffalo Bills are horrible. But the NFL squad would still be a hefty betting favorite in a hypothetical game.
According to Jeff Sherman of SuperBookUSA, if the teams met on a neutral field, Alabama would open as 28.5-point underdogs.
Without question, that’s a jarring number.
However, it’s a reminder of one important thing: The Bills have 53 NFL-caliber players on the roster. Alabama has a few dozen who will eventually reach that level, but they’re not all physically ready for the pros right now.
