Early Vegas Odds Have Alabama Favored in Every Game
The handicappers out west have released their very early betting lines for this coming college football season. The Crimson Tide is favored to win in every game by at least a touchdown. Here are the lines for the major games:
Alabama at Penn State: -9
Alabama vs Arkansas: -11
Alabama at Florida: -6
Alabama vs Tennessee: -21
Alabama vs LSU: -9
Alabama at Mississippi State: -7
Alabama at Auburn: -8
From my experience, Alabama is absolutely terrible at covering the spread. We will see how these change over the course of the season and how the team does, but its good to know that those that make a living of sports prognosticating have confidence in the team.
