They are laying big points in college football betting on the road but they should win convincingly at Tennessee.
Alabama -16.5 at SBG
Normally when you think of Alabama vs. Tennessee you think of close games but not this year. This is plain and simple a bad Tennessee team.
Alabama can’t afford any slips if they are to get back to the national title game so they won’t let up at all against the rotten Volunteers.
Tennessee Has Nothing
This is the first year for head coach Derek Dooley and it is going to be a long one. The Volunteers are 2-4 this season and 0-3 in the conference. They will be 0-4 after this game. The Volunteers were blown out two weeks ago by Georgia. They had a total of nine yards rushing. Their defense gave up more than 400 yards for the fourth time in five games.
Name the Score
Alabama should win going away and they are a team to consider as you bet on college football this week. Their offense has not been great this year but they should have a field day on Saturday. Wide receiver Julio Jones looks healthier than he has been recently and should have a good game. Running backs Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson will go wild. The Alabama defense should dominate Tennessee’s offense that is giving up sacks on a regular basis. Tennessee's Matt Simms has been sacked 20 times in four games.
