Alabama has had a tough couple of weeks of SEC play and it does not end now. The 5-2 Mississippi State Bulldogs come to town with their air raid offense with hopes of taking the Crimson Tide down. DraftKings has released their opening lines for this week’s college football games and the Tide is seen as an 18 point favorite and it has already jumped to 21.5. The Over/Under is set at 62.

Alabama has been favored in every game thus far this season. Once once has it been by under double digits.

In this space last week, I did mention that I taking the +7 Third Saturday In October, but I certainly did not expect Bama to lose. This week, I feel like the Tide gets back on track and beat MSU pretty handily but maybe a tick under 18. What are your thoughts?


Will Alabama cover the 18 point spread?
