Best Bet for this Game

The Crimson Tide, who have a record of 13-1 at home, will get back at you, despite the fact that it should be a pleasant time.

The backcourt players Sears and Estrada only made 11 of their 21 shots and turned the ball over nine times. Only 11 of their shots were successful.

The fact that Alabama is playing at home, where they have a 41.1% three-point shooting percentage, means that you can anticipate them to shoot significantly better.
