ESPN simulations have Texas A&M as 51.4% favorites to cover the spread.

60% of sports bets are currently on Texas A&M to win as +18.5 (TBD) underdogs.

The Crimson Tide are looking for their 20th consecutive overall win and are coming off a complete dismantling of then-No. 11 Tennessee as they delivered a 49-10 shellacking. Alabama has scored an amazing 11 non-offensive touchdowns (eight on defense, three on punt returns) and even hard-to-please Nick Saban had to acknowledge his squad played superb football against Tennessee.

The Aggies lead the SEC in total offense (532.8 yards per game) and rushing offense (274.3) and will be trying to penetrate an Alabama unit that leads the nation in rushing defense (69.2) and allows just 2.2 yards per carry. Standout freshman running back Trayveon Williams (SEC-leading 704 rushing yards, five touchdowns) has been superb with an 8.6 average per carry while senior quarterback Travis Knight has been effective as both a runner (502 yards, nine scores) and a passer (1,500 yards, nine touchdowns).

Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts has become a big-time star and has accounted for 17 touchdowns (nine passing, eight rushing) while passing for 1,385 yards and rushing for 428. Sophomore running back Damien Harris (572 yards) averages an impressive 8.3 yards per carry while sophomore wideout Calvin Ridley has 39 receptions for 477 yards and four touchdowns.

The Crimson Tide had three interception-return touchdowns in last year’s win over Texas A&M — two by now-sophomore CB Minkah Fitzpatrick and one by Jackson.

Alabama holds a 6-2 series edge after posting a 41-23 road victory last season.
