Tennessee at Alabama Preview, Prediction and Pick (10/19/19)

Event: (381) Tennessee Volunteers +34.5 at (382) Alabama Crimson Tide (o/u 61)
Date/Time: Saturday, October 19 at 9:00 p.m. EDT

To the naked eye, it appears that the Alabama defense is a step behind previous versions. The Tide have given up 23+ points in each of their three SEC games this season. But in reality, the defense is on the field so much because the offense is scoring so quickly. Last week against Texas A&M, the Tide scored on drives of 3, 3, 5, and 5 plays. Alabama ranks No. 7 in the country at 5.7 yards allowed per pass attempt. Let’s slow down the “these guys aren’t as good…” narrative until we see them against LSU and the rest of the country’s best.

A few trends, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

  • Alabama is 12-0 against Tennessee since Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa, covering each of the last three.
  • Alabama is 4-5 against the spread in their last nine home games.
