Missouri Tigers at Alabama Crimson Tide
Saturday, October 13 at 6 pm CT; Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL
TV: ESPN; Line: Alabama -28; Over/Under: 75
There isn’t much to say or stats you really need other than the fact that Alabama has outscored their opponents by the highest margin ever through the first six games of the season for an SEC team. However, they’ve shown they have a willingness to take their foot off the gas when they get a massive lead. I expect this to be over early, but Missouri will come through with the backdoor cover.

The Tide use another quick start to put away Missouri. The Tigers do score a couple of times late to cover the spread.

Alabama is the best team in the country, and their offense has put up gaudy numbers so far this season. Their defense is talented enough to make sure that this game never gets close. Alabama wins this in a blowout.

Alabama has looked like the best team in the country every time they’ve taken the field in 2018. That will not change vs another lower tier SEC opponent. Drew Lock throws one of the prettiest balls I’ve ever seen and will likely be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft. He may be a top pro prospect, but this is college football, and he is certainly no Tua Tagovailoa.

Alabama has Tua Tagovailoa. Missouri does not. Six games into the season the Mizzou defense has only seven sacks to its name. They won’t even get one against that Alabama offensive line. The Tide roll.
