Alabama opens Rose Bowl odds as a slight underdog to Michigan

Reinhold Matay - USA Today Sports

The betting lines have opened for the Rose Bowl matchup between Alabama and Michigan.

Alabama has served as the underdog to a few teams this season, including Texas A&M, LSU, and Georgia.

The Crimson Tide emerged victorious in all three games, including two by double digits. Alabama captured a Southeastern Conference Championship with a 27-24 victory over Georgia. The Tide returns to the College Football Playoff after missing out last year, and it is the No. 4 seed. Alabama takes on Michigan (No. 1 seed) on New Year’s Day and betting lines like the Wolverines.

According to Circa Sports, Michigan opens as a 2-point favorite. The line dropped to 1.5, but Michigan is the favorite.

Jim Harbaugh has an elite rushing attack with Blake Corum and J.J. McCarthy is an efficient quarterback.
