Week 15 betting lines: Bama a huge favorite over Mizzou in Atlanta
Alabama opened as a 13.5-point favorite against Missouri in Saturday’s SEC championship game.
It’s only the fourth time Missouri has played as an underdog this season, and by far the largest spread the Tigers have faced (+7 at South Carolina, +3 vs. Georgia, +7 at Florida).

Gary Pinkel’s team is 8-4 ATS this season and have been especially on point away from Columbia, Mo., while Alabama is 4-7 ATS. The over/under opened at 47.5, so Vegas expects a 31-17 type game in favor of Alabama.
If Mizzou pulls another upset, the SEC may not have a team in the national semifinals. The game will feature a terrific matchup between a Bama offense that just scored 55 points and a Missouri defense that features perhaps the best pass rush in the country.
Here are the initial Week 15 lines, including the other conference championship games and Big 12 matchups involving Baylor and TCU.
|Missouri vs. Alabama||4 p.m.||Alabama -13.5|
