Ten weeks into the season, one narrative has become clear. Alabama is in one tier, and the rest of the elite teams in the nation are in another.
That was on display in Golden Nugget’s national championship betting lines released on Sunday.

Alabama is favored by more than a touchdown in every theoretical title matchup offered by the Golden Nugget. When it comes to the Big Ten, the Crimson Tide are favored to beat Ohio State by 7.5 points and are 10-point favorites against Michigan.
The third-ranked Wolverines are undefeated and have possibly the most dominant defense in the nation. Ohio State is ranked no. 6 has two wins over teams ranked inside the top 12 of the AP poll.
Still, unbeaten with six wins over ranked teams by a combined 138 points, Alabama sports a résumé second to none.
