College Football Betting Odds:
Alabama Crimson Tide
Unsurprisingly, the Tide is 2-0 thus far into the season. However, this weekend’s matchup marks the first time this season that Bama will face an SEC opponent. No doubt the program is looking to get a leg up in the divisional race in the West and by the looks of it, the college football betting odds are predicting that they’ll do just that. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear we can anticipate an Alabama triumph this weekend. Although Ole Miss is pretty even with Bama offensively, with both teams putting up over 500 total yards on offense in each game, the Crimson Tide’s defense is vastly superior. Right now Alabama is giving up a slim 329per game. On the other hand, Ole Miss is allotting a whopping 557 per outing. With that in mind, it’s clear a 3-0 start is in the Alabama’s future.
Players to Watch: Tua Tagovailoa (455 passing yards, 6 TD, 0 INT), Najee Harris (165 rushing yards, 2 TD, 7.9 AVG), and DeVonta Smith (176 receiving yards, 1 TD, 7 REC).
Ole Miss Rebels
The Rebels haven’t had much luck against Alabama lately and they won’t be having much this Saturday. So far Ole Miss has been beating up their competition handily. In Week 1 they defeated Texas Tech 47-27. Afterwards, the Rebels delivered a lopsided 76-41 finish over Southern Illinois. Unfortunately for the Rebels, neither of those teams was nationally ranked. Going from facing unranked competition to facing the No. 1 team in the nation isn’t a jump anyone would want to make. And all things considered, it’s likely to end in disappointment for Ole Miss.
Players to Watch: Jordan Ta’amu (784 passing yards, 7 TD, 0 INT), Scottie Phillips (311 rushing yards, 4 TD, 10.0 AVG), and AJ Brown (251 receiving yards, 3 TD, 15 REC).
