The Alabama Crimson Tide have won their last two games including their SEC opener over Vandy. Alabama is still looking for a win away from home, Alabama has played the fifth ranked schedule in the country and are in the middle of pack in the SEC. Trevor Releford leads the Tide averaging 18.3 points per game. Retin Obasohan is averaging 13 points, Levi Randolph is averaging 10 points, and Nick Jacobs is averaging 9.5 points. Alabama is averaging 72.3 points and they are shooting 46.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 66.4 points and their opponents are shooting 41.8 percent. Bama has played a tough schedule but they don’t have a win over a team with a RPI better than 100.
Georgia is 18-7 against the spread in their last 25 games, 9-3 against the spread following a win, and 14-3 against the spread against the SEC. Alabama is 5-2 against the spread against the SEC, 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games. Alabama is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
My free pick on this one will be on the total and I will update this after they are released. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
