Alabama vs Florida State will not only open the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta. On paper it may be the premiere game of the entire 2017 season.
Well...maybe. There are some in Vegas that have already begun to distance themselves from Jimbo Fisher and the Seminoles.
Back in late January, @5Dimes had Alabama -4.5 vs FSU for the season opener. The book now has the Crimson Tide favored by 7 points.— Brian Edwards Sports (@vegasbedwards) May 16, 2017
Alabama has not lost an opener under Nick Saban. They have averaged double digit victories including a 46 point win over USC last season.
