OUR PREDICTION: I don't like this spot for Alabama, which just played a physical game against Florida State and now comes home to face a non-conference opponent receiving zero respect. The Bulldogs are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus a team with a winning record, and are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous contest. I just don't see Alabama getting up for this one.
