Alabama is 2-0-2 against the spread in their last four games, 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 road games, and 4-10-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
With Bama not being able to win on the road I just can’t take them hee and will lay the small number with the Aggies.
