According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Crimson Tide are 28-point home favorites versus the Hilltoppers while the over/under currently sits at 62.5 points. Both the side and the total have moved off the original numbers set by oddsmakers, as the Crimson Tide have gone from -26.5 up to -28, while the total has gone from 58.5 up to 62.5.
The Hilltoppers hung 46 points on Rice last weekend in a 46-14 win. Western Kentucky also covered as a 19-point home favorite while the combined score fell 4.5 points shy of the 64.5-point total. Mike White threw for a whopping 517 yards and three touchdowns on 25-of-31 passing, while Anthony Wales rushed 15 times for 58 yards and two scores.
Alabama, meanwhile, embarrassed USC 52-6 as a 13.5-point favorite at AT&T Stadium last Saturday. The Crimson Tide only held a 17-3 lead at halftime but outscored the Trojans 35-3 in the second half. Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts completed six-of-11 passes for 118 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, while Damien Harris rushed just nine times and racked up 138 yards in the victory.
OUR PICK: The over is a perfect 5-0 in the Hilltoppers' last five road games, is 4-0 in their last four non-conference games, and is 4-1 in their last five games versus SEC opponents. On the other side, the over is 15-4-2 in the Crimson Tide's last 21 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game and has cashed in five of their last seven games played in September.
