Phil Steele is usually pretty spot on with his picks. But that was not the case this week.
The ESPN insider went a stunning 0-9 against the spread in his weekly best bets column. One of those games as the Alabama-Tennessee tilt. Steele took Tennessee as a 13-point home underdog. He did pick Alabama to win the game 37-30.
Tennessee fans wish the game was that close. Alabama won 49-10.
The other picks Steele made: Utah(-9), Texas Tech(+1), Clemson(-17), Ohio State(-10), Kansas State(+11), Ole Miss(-7.5), Virginia Tech(-19.5), Arizona State(+13.5).
It should be noted that all those picks were against the spread. Picking straight up winners, Steele had a much better week, going 6-3. Hopefully, Steele has a much week this time around.
