Alabama ties record for consecutive games as betting favorite

Entering their Sugar Bowl contest against Oklahoma, the Alabama Crimson Tide will be betting favorites for the 54th consecutive game. That, according to D.C. Reeves, ties the record for longest streak in history.

Florida State strung together 54 straight games from 1997-2001.

The Tide have not been an underdog since the 2009 SEC Championship Game. They knocked off the undefeated Florida Gators in that contest, and effectively started a modern-day dynasty.

To put the streak in perspective: the last time Alabama was an underdog, Urban Meyer had not yet retired from Florida for the first time. In the 53 games that have been played during the streak, the Tide are 47-6.

Alabama opens the 2014 season in Atlanta, GA against West Virginia, and will, in all likelihood, set the record for consecutive games as a betting favorite.
