Auburn set for slaughter; Ole Miss can score on Alabama

الجمعة ٢٦ يوليو ٢٠١٩

When in doubt, check with Vegas.
Is your star running back injured, or is your coach just exercising a little gamesmanship and calling him daily? Is the point guard poised for a major game, or did he have a little too much fun last night from home? Vegas does not always understand, but the handicappers can oftentimes be a good guide to the reality.
Those trusty betting lines may teach us things if we’re 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 with his starting quarterback position close to the vest. Initially he would not name a starter, and now he’s splitting time between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Why? It’s not from the graciousness of heart.
Saban has two great quarterbacks, and he needs every edge over his opponents. Why allow Ole Miss to prepare just 1 quarterback this weekend if he could make the Land Sharks prepare for two?
Is Tagovailoa and Hurts really going to continue to divide time now that SEC play has started? Vegas thinks it knows the answer, and the handicappers are all in on Tua. Before this week, the Heisman stocks created Tagovailoa the obvious favorite for the award, decreasing his likelihood of winning it to 3-to-1.
He’s currently the odds-on favorite to win it, which is a pretty good sign that Ole Miss is about to get a large dose of the Tua Show on Saturday in Oxford. You know who proceeds to fail at putting on a display? Joe.
Joe went 4-4 against the spread last week after starting the season 1-7. He cried, in different words, but Joe will have to perform a lot better to grab the Guru. Check out last week!
