Alabama now a 13-point favorite over Tennessee
On Sunday, Alabama opened as a nine-point favorite against its upcoming opponent in rival Tennessee.
It didn’t take long for that to shoot up to double digits, as the Crimson Tide now enter the Third Saturday in October with a 13-point edge in Vegas. And as Vince Ferrara points out, it’s been a few years since Tennessee has lost a game by 10 points or more … it just so happens to be that its opponent was, well, Bama.
Alabama is now a 13-pt favorite over UT. Last time Vols lost by double digits: Oct. 25, 2014 vs Bama (34-20). Last 6 losses by 32 total pts.

This weekend will mark the first time that both Alabama and Tennessee enter the game as ranked teams since 2005. Alabama is looking to extend its winning streak vs. the Vols to 10 games on Saturday — a streak in which the Crimson Tide have won by 20 or more points six times.
