Alabama doesn’t play LSU and Auburn until November, but what if they played on Saturday?
AL.com asked handicapper Danny Sheridan what the point spreads would be. His answer was 10 points against LSU and 19 against Auburn.
“I was surprised LSU would be 10, but they could lose to Mississippi,” Sheridan said. “If I asked any better about LSU, they’d say ‘Man, they’re on a roll.’ They made that change and they’re real excited. Then I would ask that person who did they beat?”
“If LSU wins this game and they pop Ole Miss, you’re talking about a different mentality with Alabama,” Sheridan said. “The line might go back to 7. But right now it would be 10.”
The thought of Alabama being double digit favorites over ranked teams just shows how dominant the program is this season. Of course, it would change as Sheridan points out depending on future results but if Alabama continues to win and Auburn or LSU lose a game or two, those point spreads would jump even higher.
While it’s okay to bet the over/under or Crimson Tide against the spread, it’s certainly not a wise move to bet against them losing at the moment. Their closest call came against Ole Miss in Week 3, a game which they won 48-43. They are currently top-10 in points for and rushing yards in the country and No. 7 in points against. Not to mention the blossoming Heisman Trophy candidate in Jalen Hurts under center.
