Why Alabama Can Cover

Alabama was the best team in the conference this season and topped the standings with a perfect record in SEC play. The Crimson Tide had an away win at Vanderbilt earlier this month, leading by 10 points at halftime and as much as 23 points in the second in a 78-66 final. Star freshman Brandon Miller posted a game-high 30 points while Jaden Bradley and Noah Gurley each added 12 points.

Miller was Alabama’s top player this season, averaging 19.0 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. He plays a key role on the glass for a team that ranks in the top 30 in offensive rebounding nationally, and the Crimson Tide have a size advantage in this duel with three starters who are 6’9 or taller. They have covered the spread in seven of their last nine games and won six of the last eight meetings between these teams.

Why Vanderbilt can cover

Vanderbilt has been extremely underrated away since last season, covering the spread in eight of their last nine road games. The Commodores stayed with then-No. 20 Missouri and then-No. 5 Tennessee earlier this month before beating Georgia in their next away game. They put in another strong performance on Saturday, covering the 9.5 point spread in a 72-66 loss at Texas A&M.

Alabama put on a miserable performance against Oklahoma and is 17 points behind at halftime before falling as much as 32 points in the second half. The Sooners held Miller to 11 points on 4 of 14 shooting as the Crimson Tide fell flat after hitting its highest rank (No. 2) since 2002. Vanderbilt has covered the spread in five consecutive trips to Tuscaloosa and has been in four of the last five encounters between those teams overall.
