Alabama is in a classic letdown spot after beating Georgia at home last week.
That might linger for a series or two but once they right themselves it should be an easy win.
Tennessee is not having the season they were hoping for and looks like they are kind of coming apart at the seams.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama looked really good last week against Georgia. They were pushed in the first half but they stuck with what has gotten them here, a hellishly good offense.
Alabama “only” scored 41 points against the Dawgs last week but it was still an impressive performance. Mac Jones is a good QB for sure and they are so skilled at running back and receiver.
Bama gave up 24 points against UGA in the first half last week. In the second half, they shut them out so maybe the defense is finally coming together.
If so we should see that again vs. a Tennessee team that looks lost right now. Alabama can make any opponent look that way when they are at the top of their game.
Per the intro, they might be a little sluggish to start. Even if that is the case they just have so much more talent than the Vols right now.
There is something going on with the Vols and it ain’t good. Last week their quarterback threw two pick-sixes in the loss, so of course, you fire the defensive line coach, right. I am oversimplifying but I think the heat might be getting to Jeremy Pruitt.
Now he has his boss coming to town and last week Nick Saban notched yet another win against one of his disciples when he beat Kirby Smart.
Tennessee has to get better in a lot of phases of the game but quarterback play is the most glaring. Jarrett Guarantano is not getting the job done and worse than that he is killing them with his mistakes. You would think they could recruit better or find a transfer or something.
Even if Guarantano is perfect this week I don’t see how Tennessee keeps Alabama from scoring as much as they want. Their defense has been mediocre at best.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
This looks like a very big number, especially on the road. Alabama has their offense in high gear though and the defense appears to be improving.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Alabama -21.5
I hate those hooks on these high numbers but remember that Alabama shutout UGA in the second half while scoring 21 points of their own. They could be even better than that against a limited Tennessee team.
Alabama is always overvalued. Still, this looks like a pretty solid bet. This is not shaping up to be a low scoring showdown.
