Paul Finebaum makes early prediction for Alabama-Ole Miss game
Alabama kicks off conference play this Saturday against Ole Miss, a team that has given them some trouble over the past few seasons.
The Crimson Tide are 2-2 against Ole Miss since 2014, while they are an astounding 48-1 against all other teams.
On Friday, Paul Finebaum made an appearance on the MSNBC program “Morning Joe,” which was being broadcasted from Oxford, Miss., where the two teams will face off this weekend.
According to 247Sports, when Finebaum was previewing the matchup, he didn’t hesitate to pick a winner.
“I think Alabama is going to win,” Finebaum said. “The question is whether it’s going to be more than 21 for anyone keeping score. I think this Alabama team is unstoppable.”
This matchup could turn into a high-scoring game, but most sportsbooks still have Alabama as a 20-plus point favorite.
“(Alabama has) the best offense I’ve seen in modern time,” Finebaum said. “The best quarterback (Tua Tagovailoa) in maybe a couple generations. So Ole Miss, which has absolutely no defense, will not be able … (the Rebels) have a really good offense. The most interesting part of this game: you have a battle of two quarterbacks (Tagovailoa and Jordan Ta’amu) from Hawaii in the state of Mississippi.”
While Alabama is expected to win Saturday, we’ve learned to never count out the Rebels when they take on the Crimson Tide. Kickoff is scheduled for tomorrow at 7 PM ET.
