You know Bama hadnt really played anybody that great. A$M ?? ehh, Ole piss ehhh. Tenn stinks but played Ore, FLa, Geo, SCAR. Remember the year the fat kid blocked TN winning attempt at FG in 2009.. Just Saying. Plus Bama doesnt have Sunseri a pretty good DB. Tenn has been pretty solid lately!! TENN for the LAHHHGGEE and I dont even like them boytches plus it was pretty weird for Bama to cover the Over last week. 80 yd run from a scrub with 40 sec??? REallllyyyyy

That "scrub" is a true freshman that was a top 5 high school running back that would be getting double digit carries for every other team in the country right now.  Remember the name Derrick Henry.  

I think we are ok at saftey with Clinton-Dix and Landon Collins, both 1st round draft picks whenever they enter the NFL. 

 Tennessee played with a beat up Georgia team and an overrated South Carolina, both at home. 

 This game will not be close.

Unfortunately reality is setting in...ALA is still King!  I'll be teasing the Tide with a couple others and hopefully cashing tickets!

That late TD saved my axx last week as I figured Arkansas would help the Over effort with at least two touchdowns…  Gun to my head, Bama covers the number as I think that freshman signal caller unravels in Tuscaloosa...  but NO play for me in this spot…

Sorry Scott, Henry will probably be good in a couple of years but saying he would get double digit carries for all other teams indicates you are pretty delusional about the Tide.  I don't even think Yeldon would start for 5-6 teams, maybe more.  But you are right, I think Alabama will put another beat down on TN Saturday.  UT offense just isn't good enough to score over a TD this Saturday in Tusky.  Now whether the Alabama offense can cover the number or not is tougher for me. 

I see this as a 35-7 type game but something is making me think Bama gets some turnovers, or a return, and adds a TD+ to those numbers, so maybe 45-7 when all the votes are in.  Not high confidence so a 3 unit play for me.  Bama rolls....but not all the way this year.

Guys if you are doing a 10-point 3-team teaser including this game, would you rather include Alabama -18 or Tennessee +38 on the teaser? Thanks.

Thats a lot of points for a STRONG head to head conference SEC matchup.

No doubt Bama wins , but by 28 ?   Tenn loses to GA by 3 in OT , Loses to FLA by 14 , and wins At SC by 2 , those all cover 28 !

No give me the Vols +28 , lotta points for a SEC game.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing when I read that dudes post but you beat me to it...Bama's scrubs are probably some of the finest FB players in the nation.

I would definitely take the Bama -18 option.  I think they easily cover that line and am thinking about taking that play myself. TN has a very average offense would will struggle against a Bama defense that has only given up one TD in the last 5 games.

Alabama - 40                                              Tennessee - 14

Volunteers +28                                    over 51.5

If the Vols can get me 2 scores I have a shot here.

Tennessee - Over

I have watched every Bama game this year, and one thing I have noticed is their defense continues to get better each game. The Vols are improving, but are far outmatched on the road in this one.

Bama -28 large
