Even though the Tide is a massive favorite, will Alabama still find a way to cover against Kentucky tonight at 7:00PM ET?

OUR PREDICTION: There's no reason to back Kentucky. The Wildcats scored just 17 points at home last week against South Carolina, giving way to the notion that they might not score at all tonight in Tuscaloosa. 'Bama, meanwhile, is focused on the task at hand and despite having a trip to Tennessee on the schedule next week, don't expect the Tide to suffer a letdown tonight.
