Alabama vs Tennessee Prediction & Pick
The first of a few tough tests on the schedule for the Crimson Tide came last week and they almost failed. Keep in mind starting quarterback Bryce Young did not take a single snap, though. Backup Jalen Milroe stepped in and looked like the unpolished player that he is with 3 total turnovers.
The health of Young is going to be a key storyline heading into Saturday. He is reportedly "making progress" during practice, but college programs notoriously keep injury updates close to the vest. If Young plays, Alabama should be able to grow its winning streak against Tennessee to 11 games.
Final Score Prediction: Alabama: 37 | Tennessee: 31

This could very well be a close game, so backing the Crimson Tide on the spread comes with a bit too much risk. More value lies in backing over 65.5 points to be scored. The over has hit in nine of Tennessee's last 11 games overall and it has also hit in each of Tennessee's last six home games.
Keep in mind the over has also hit in seven of the last 10 head-to-head meetings between these two schools. Last year, the Crimson Tide and the Volunteers combined for 76 points in a thrilling Alabama win. With perfect football weather on the docket for Saturday's action, expect offensive fireworks.
Bet: Over 65.5 Points (-110)
