Tennessee vs Alabama: Free NCAAF Betting Picks and Game Predictions

The Turks notched a much-needed victory that was 20-10 last week against SEC rival Mississippi State after surrendering a joint 77 points, also getting thumped in their last two by conference foes, both Florida and Georgia. But the Tennessee defense tightened up, holding the Bulldogs to just 10 points while picking off three passes and garnering a seven sacks. Furthermore, freshman quarterback, Brian Maurer, who had supplanted Jarrett Guarantano, left the game in the second quarter with a concussion.
Alabama is the very best group in the country and provided more evidence a week the reason they deserve this distinction after they traveled into the hostile environs of College Station, to take on No. 24 Texas A&M, also arose with a 47-28 victory when covering the number as 17-point street chalk. Tua Tagovailoa withdrew his first pick of the year but also started for 293 yards and four TD strikes, even while busting A.J. McCarrons college record for most career passing touchdowns, and now leads the nation with 27 on the year.
The school football odds at each one the greatest online sportsbooks are offering the Tide as 34. It seems there is no line too extravagant to avoid the public from placing it in on Nick Sabans wrecking crew but, on the flip side, Bama has covered in half of their games despite being tagged as everywhere from 17 to 54 1/2 point favorites over the span of their six matches so far.
Alabama hasnt lost to Tennessee and has since covered the number in seven of their last nine contests, including the past 3 meetings. I cant see anything since the Vols do not have much of an offense to talk 22, changing in this matchup and Bamas defense could be one of the best despite committing 28 in their final performance.
However, unlike previous seasons, even if a game could be won by the defense of Alabama by itself, this years version is not stingy but the offense more than compensates for any lapse. As great as the defense of Tennessee has been in closing Mississippi State last week , they wont have a prayer against company and Tua. The Crimson Tide boasts a juggernaut thats currently averaging a defense holding opponents to 17 PPG and 51 points a game.
Despite sustaining a concussion last week, Tennessee freshman QB Brian Maurer will be likely to match up this week, and start against the Tide. Im not sure he is an upgrade from Jarrett Guarantano but no matter who traces signals from under center for the Vols, it does not make that difference. The Tides defense will have its own way and the crime will shred Tennessee on the ground and from the air. This one looks like a laugher night, back Alabama in your school football selections on Saturday.
