When in doubt, always check with Vegas.
Is the star running back injured, or is the trainer just exercising a bit gamesmanship and phoning him day-to-day? Is the point protector poised for a big game, or did he have a bit too much fun last night from home? Vegas doesn’t always know, but the handicappers can oftentimes be a great guide to the reality.
Those trusty betting lines may teach us things if we’re paying attention. What can Vegas teach us about Alabama?
Well, if you’ve been paying attention to college football, then you know Alabama coach Nick Saban has played with his starting quarterback position close to the vest. Initially he wouldn’t name a starter, and now he is splitting time between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Why? It is not out of the graciousness of heart.
Saban has two great quarterbacks, and he needs every edge over his opponents. Why allow Ole Miss to prepare just 1 quarterback this weekend if he could create the Land Sharks prepare two?
Is Tagovailoa and Hurts going to continue to split time now that SEC drama has started? Vegas believes it knows the answer, and the handicappers are in on Tua. Earlier this week, the Heisman stocks created Tagovailoa the obvious favorite for the award, decreasing his odds of winning it into 3-to-1.
He’s now the odds-on favorite to win it, which is a fairly good sign that Ole Miss is about to get a huge dose of the Tua Show on Saturday in Oxford. You know who proceeds to fail at putting on a show? Joe.
Joe went 4-4 against the spread last week after starting the season 1-7. He rallied, in other words, but Joe would need to perform a great deal better to grab the Pro. Check out last week!
