It’s been one of the more interesting talking points this week around the Texas A&M-Alabama game.
The Crimson Tide were heavy, heavy favorites, with the spread getting as high as Alabama being a 19 point favorite. With a line that high, Las Vegas is basically begging people take Texas A&M and the points.
And it looks like they have. At least according to Mark Schlabach of ESPN. Three times as much money has been bet on the underdog Aggies to keep the game within the spread.

The line closed with Alabama as an 17.5-point favorite over the Aggies. The two teams play on CBS. Alabama has won the last three matchups between the two teams. Alabama was a double-digit favorite against Tennessee last week and covered with ease.
