Betting experts say Alabama would be multi-touchdown favorite over UCF

Betting experts say Alabama would be multi-touchdown favorite over UCF

UCF also claimed themselves as national champions following their undefeated 2017 season.

There's only one way to settle this dispute, and that's on the field.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the billboard is the work of 37 UCF fans. Auburn, coincidentally, is the only team that beat the Tide in their title-winning season.

Alabama hasn't played a non-conference home-and-home series since facing off with Penn State in 2010 and 2011. Combine that with the Peach Bowl win over Auburn, and UCF has a respectable three wins over Top 20 teams in this set of rankings.

The billboard reads: "Congratulations Alabama!"

The event will coincide with Monday's College Football Playoff National Championship, during which the University of Alabama Crimson Tide (12-1) will face the University of Georgia Bulldogs (13-1) at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium. But earlier this week, Bet The Board's Twitter account relayed word that a potential betting line for an Alabama-UCF matchup would place the Crimson Tide as 21-point favorites. They played a far harder schedule, of course, which is why they made the Playoff while UCF was relegated to a lesser-but-still-good Peach Bowl. Head coach Scott Frost left the school to coach at Nebraska, which is his alma mater.
