Prediction

Alabama 45, Texas A&M 21

Money line (ML)

Alabama (-1000) is a huge moneyline favorite over Texas A&M Saturday afternoon and for good reason. The Aggies have lost seven straight games to the Crimson Tide and barely beat Vanderbilt in their first game of the season.

Alabama may just be the best team in the country and dominated Missouri in its first game; however, there just isn’t enough value on either side here, so PASS on the moneyline in favor of the point spread.

Against the spread (ATS)

ALABAMA -18 (-110) opens this game as a three-touchdown favorite. Alabama has covered the spread in four of its last six games against Texas A&M and has the more explosive offense.

Expect this game to be close in the first half, but for the Crimson Tide offense to take off in the second half. Look for Alabama to win this game by 20-plus points.

Over/Under (O/U)

The total for this SEC matchup is set at 53.5 points, which feels slightly low considering how explosive Alabama’s offense can be in any given game. The Tide have multiple potential first-round picks at receiver and an emerging star at quarterback. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Alabama came close to 53 points itself.

Look for this game to easily hit the OVER 53.5 (-115) as both teams should score at least three touchdowns.
