I took Alabama last week against Georgia State. Saban pulled his starting qb. They only scored 7 points in the 2nd half. Saban is a box coach. Doesn't like to run up scores. I took UK and the points. I may be wrong but if that box coach and his staff can't cover 56 against Georgia State, then they won't cover against UK. It's just my opinion. I'm done taking a team with a box coach

They changed my words to box, so what I mean is that Saban is a p___y  coach. I think you can add the other letters. For being #1 they suck the big one.

Ky fan here and I am leaning Bama...1) Our offense finally came together and played well last week at USCjr. Saban will obviously see this and also the fact it's a league game on the road he will not ease off the pedal at all in this one. No way he will let us in this game. 2) Also, two of our best defenders (DE's Bud Dupree & Jason Hatcher) are battling injuries. Hatcher will play with a cast on a broken hand but Bud may not. Bud Dupree is a huge loss for our defense if he does not play. Watch that one in the injury reports. For those two reasons I would lean Bama.

I think with all the undefeated teams, and the fact that UK is a SEC team, saban will leave the starters in until Bama is up by 45...

I don't think Saban will have any mercy on a SEC team...probably a no play for me, but it would be Bama or nothing for me...

I'll Gladly take the 28PTS!!!! Kentucky seems to have found something and appears to be playing better each week. their last 3 games were tough outings as they lost to S.carolina Florida and Louisville.. losing by 7, 17 and 14.. Kentucky is aware of the number one team visiting this saturday and i think they will put up a good fight against the tide. 
    Saban is a smart coach. sitting at the number one spot, he could care less about running up the score. all he cares about is precision playing sound football and execution. and those usually leads to bama victories. if it means being ahead and pulling his valuable players to risk injury to this scrappy kentucky team which i suspect he will. 

ALABAMA 41-16

    The Tide tends to play more aggressively, and covers on the road. Saban has had a good success rate ATS, when giving under 30 points.

ALABAMA   -27

I also don't like games with big lines where the coach determines how badly he beats the other team but it is different in a conference game.  Saban will keep his #1 offense on the field through at least 3 quarters regardless of the score, if he is up more than 3 TDs he will proababl gets some reps for next year's QB in a road game.  The real question is whether this Tide offense is really that good.  The losses on the OL has made their running game less effective and pressure on McCarron has made him look less impressive.  I don't know if Kentucky is tough enough to contest this game in the trenches but I think Bama is just not as good as last year.  4TDs looks like a pretty good line to me, I am sitting this dance out.  GL to all.

If ALABAMA stop playing "FIXED GAME" then they can beat UK by 50 pts or more.
