The Rams have covered in eight of their last nine games versus a team with a winning record and are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games. They're also 11-4 against the number in their last 15 games overall and are 11-5-1 at the betting window in their last 17 games in September.


The Crimson Tide has struggled to cover at home, failing to cover in four of their last five home games. That said, they're 7-1 at the betting window in their last eight games following an ATS loss and are 14-6 against the spread in their last 20 games versus a team with a winning record.

OUR PREDICTION: This Colorado State team isn't going to be intimidated by the task at hand tonight. The Rams have a couple of senior leaders in quarterback Nick Stevens, who has passed for 985 yards and six touchdowns, as well as receiver Michael Gallup, who has 26 catches for 309 yards. Alabama isn't going to lose tonight, but with its passing game grounded at the moment, I see a physical, low-scoring game where the Tide comes up short of covering the number.
