Prediction

Alabama 42, Texas A&M 14

Moneyline ( ?)

As is always the case in Alabama games, those who bet on the Tide head to pay-window to collect pennies on the dollar. 'Bama is -770 on the moneyline, which is simply too cost-prohibitive to endorse risking for such little return. The Aggies are +525 for a reason. Avoid this one for either side.

Against the Spread ( ?)

The line opened at with Alabama as a 19-point favorite and has since dropped to a more manageable 17 points ( +100) as early money came in on the Aggies (+17, -121) as well as concerns over the Crimson Tide's mounting injuries and reliance on freshmen at key positions. But, coming off its bye week, Alabama should come out strong and cover the spread with ease if it just plays its game and limits turnovers.

Over/Under ( ?)

The Aggies play smart football and, when they know they're outmanned, try to take the air out of the ball, knock off clock time through the run game and reduce the number of possessions for each team. While they likely won't be successful, the O/U of 61½ ( -110) seems a little high given that Alabama will likely try to preserve its healthy starters if it opens up a healthy lead. If Texas A&M can produce two or three long drives, hitting the over will be difficult. Take the UNDER.
