The Alabama Crimson Tide haven't lost to Missouri since 1975, and it doesn't look like the oddsmakers believe that 2020 is going to be the year that pattern of dominance comes to an end, either.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented scheduling changes and cancellations, the odds and spreads for this week's upcoming slate of SEC season openers are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Alabama vs Missouri Odds 2020

Sitting less than one week away from the seventh all-time meeting between these two programs, Alabama has already opened as an enormous 27.5-point favorite to beat Missouri on the road in Columbia this weekend, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Crimson Tide have dominated this series ever since the Tigers joined the SEC, posting a perfect 3-0 record against Missouri during that stretch. Alabama has also been especially solid on the road, having never lost to the Tigers in Columbia in two total meetings there.

There's still plenty of time for the odds to shift between now and this Week 4 SEC kickoff, but the Tide remain overwhelming early favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes, Missouri is currently set to host Alabama at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field at 7 p.m. EST on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020.
