Auburn set for slaughter; Ole Miss can score on Alabama

When in doubt, always check with Vegas.
Is your star running back hurt, or is your coach just exercising a bit gamesmanship and calling him day-to-day? Is the point guard poised for a big match, or did he have a little too much fun last night from home? Vegas doesn’t always know, however, the handicappers can oftentimes be a good guide to the reality.
Those trusty betting lines can teach us things if we are paying attention. What can Vegas teach us about Alabama?
Well, if you’ve been paying attention to college football, then you understand Alabama coach Nick Saban has played his starting quarterback position near the vest. At first he wouldn’t name a starter, and now he’s dividing time between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Why? It’s not from the graciousness of heart.
Saban has two great quarterbacks, and he wants every advantage over his opponents. Why allow Ole Miss to prepare just one quarterback this weekend if he could make the Land Sharks prepare for two?
Is Tagovailoa and Hurts going to continue to split time today that SEC play has started? Vegas believes it knows the answer, and the handicappers are all in on Tua. Earlier this week, the Heisman futures made Tagovailoa the obvious favorite for the award, decreasing his likelihood of winning it to 3-to-1.
He is now the odds-on favorite to win it, which is a fairly good indication that Ole Miss is about to have a huge dose of this Tua Show on Saturday at Oxford. You understand who continues to fail at putting on a display? Joe.
Joe went 4-4 against the spread last week after beginning the season 1-7. He cried, in different words, but Joe will need to perform a great deal better to grab the Pro. Take a look at last week!
