Week 3 College Football Lines: Tide opens 27-point favorite in night game against the Rams

New, 24 comments

Run the dang ball, Bobo!

Las Vegas

The Alabama Crimson Tide take a significant step-up in competition this week, as Mike Bobo’s Colorado State Rams travel to Tuscaloosa for Alabama’s first night game of the season (6:00 p.m. Central, ESPN2/WatchESPN). Nevertheless, the Books see a comfortable win for the nation’s No. 1 team. The Crimson Tide opens a 27-point favorite.

Much of the SEC begins its intraconference play this week, and the money projects a lot of narrow results — some, even curious (like LSU just a touchdown favorite over Mississippi State.)

Here are the lines from Bookmaker.eu, SEC Games in bold.
