Alabama was originally scheduled to face Colorado State on Tuesday night, but the game was called off due to COVID-19 issues with the Rams schedule, and now the Crimson Tide will face Davidson in Birmingham, Alabama in what will be. certainly a pro-Alabama crowd.
Davidson is focused on short notice, but this team shouldn’t be taken lightly, one of the best offensives in the world. country. Can they hold their own against a Final Four contender in Alabama? Let’s break down the chances of WynnBET sports betting and find out.
Davidson is on the offensive to tie Alabama, scoring over 41% of their 3-point tries on a healthy 40% 3-point rate, but I think the Wildcats will struggle to find saves.
Alabama are in the top 10 in KenPom’s offensive efficiency metric, playing at the 10th fastest offensive pace in the country and dominating on the inside by 58% at two points. The Tide is also a strong offensive rebounding team, 32nd in this metric, per KenPom.
Davidson will try to slow this play down and have the Tide run into the half court. The Wildcats are outside the top 300 in offensive rebound rate, choosing to go back on defense and limit transition opportunities. In addition, the team is 23rd to limit the second chances of its opponents.
It will be an interesting chess match and I think the best bet for this one is on the first half. Davidson might be able to hang around for part of this game with his fantastic perimeter shot, but if it gets cold it can quickly get out of hand.
CHOICE: Davidson 1H +5.5
