CFB handicapper Danny Sheridan weighs in on the Alabama vs. Bills debate
The Buffalo Bills look absolutely atrocious this year, and when a team looks that bad (cough, Cleveland Browns last year, cough), it prompts certain questions.
Could the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Bills in a game? What would a betting line be for such a game?
According to college football handicapper Danny Sheridan, the Bills would be at least a 28-point favorite against the Tide:
the worst NFL team would be at least a 4 TD favorite vs. the best college team, one has all drafted pros & the college team has about 20-30 possible pro draft choices over the next 3 years..huge speed & talent gap https://t.co/tp4BrQA6Xl

However, when you dive deeper into this debate, the Bills are playing Josh Allen — a rookie from Wyoming — at quarterback. Do you really think he’d find success against the Tide’s defense? Yeah, I don’t either.
Yes, it would be tough for the Tide to stop RB LeSean McCoy, but a four-touchdown spread seems a bit unreasonable.
Sadly, we’ll never know what this matchup would look like, so we’ll have to continue wildly speculating about what would happen.
