  • The Tide are 3-3 ATS and also 3-3 O/U on the year.
  • Tennessee managed to win against Mississippi State 20-10 as the OVER hit against an "inferior opponent." It seems the Volunteers can show up early against top teams, but typically falter as the game goes on. The difference is this is vs. Alabama.
  • Alabama thumped Texas A&M 47-28 after the bye on the road as it beat the spread and connected on the OVER. The Tide are the number one team in the nation for a reason.
  • Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa threw for 293 yards and four TDs with one INT vs. Texas A&M last week on 21-for-34 passing. Combine that with 114 yards rushing from Najee Harris and Tennessee will have quite a 1-2 punch to deal with.

Prediction

Alabama 48, Tennessee 10

Moneyline ( ?)

Alabama is such a big favorite on the point spread that the moneyline is off the board.

Against the Spread ( ?)

ALABAMA (-34.5, -110) is the STRONGEST PLAY. This is a mismatch, especially in Tuscaloosa.

New to sports betting? Bet $11.10 to win $10 on Alabama to win by 35 points or more. Every $1 wagered would profit $0.91 (1 divided by 1.10) if the Tide cover the spread.

Over/Under ( ?)

The UNDER 61.5 ( -106) is the way to go. Style points are nice and all but the problem is that Tennessee may not be able to score enough points to tilt this to an over. It will be close, however.
