We are just a few months away from College Football season, and WynnBET has released projected win totals for the top schools across the country.

If you’re sick of seeing the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff nearly every year, I’m sorry to disappoint you, they’re going to be back in 2021.

WynnBET has Alabama’s win total set at 11.5 games, with the odds set as a pick’em. With 12 games set on its schedule, oddsmakers are giving them a 50/50 chance to once again go undefeated.

The Crimson Tide has appeared in the College Football Playoff in six of the seven years of its existence, winning the National Championship in three of those seasons including last year. They’ll enter their 2021-2022 campaign as the defending champions, and there’s no sign that they’ll be slowing down.

With Alabama’s projected win total being set at 11.5, it’s a true testament to their program considering they lost their starting QB, starting two wide receivers, starting running back, and six other players to the 2021 NFL Draft.

Sophomore quarterback Bryce Young is projected to take over the starting role with Mac Jones now on the Patriots, and he’ll rely on returning receiver John Metchie III as his main target. Alabama also had a fantastic recruiting season when it comes to the offensive line, signing the top center, the top two offensive tackles, and the No. 2 ranked guard this past offseason.

Don’t be shocked if Alabama repeats as National Champions, as Nick Saban’s squad is set as the +325 favorite to do just that. Clemson (+425), Ohio State (+600), Oklahoma (+800), and SEC rival Georgia (+850) round out the top five teams on the odds list at WynnBET.
