NCAA Betting: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Tennessee Volunteers

One of the SEC’s biggest rivalries will again take place this week when the Crimson Tide in an NCAA betting game against the Volunteers.

The Crimson Tide (7-0 SU, 4-3 ATS) have played back-to-back close games in the SEC and their last two wins have been decided by just seven points.  Tennessee (3-4 SU, 2-4-1 ATS) is coming off a 34-3 home win against Mississippi State, which was their first win against the college football odds this year as a favorite.

Say what you want about Nick Saban, but the man can build a football team.  Expected to not seriously contend for three years, Saban has defied expectations and is in place for a BCS Title berth in just the second year of his tenure at Alabama with the help of some extremely talented underclassmen.

Against Ole Miss last week, Alabama seemed to have the game well in hand with a 24-3 halftime lead, but a scoreless second half left the Crimson Tide needing a stop at the end to preserve their 24-20 win which came short of covering the NCAA line of 10.5 points.

Both of Alabama’s road games have flown over the ‘total’ so far this year for NCAA football gamblers that have seen the Crimson Tide score a combined 90 points.  The Tennessee offense finally came to life against Mississippi State last week if only for a quarter.

On the strength of 21 fourth quarter points, the Vols cruised to the 34-3 college football betting win against the Bulldogs.  Due in large part to their struggles on offense, the Volunteers have played six consecutive games under the ‘total’ per the closing college football betting odds.

The Volunteers defense has been very good on the season, especially at home, surrendering just 45 points in four games this season.  College football betting sites have the Crimson Tide set as 6.5-point road favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 41.
