FOX Sports analyst Clay Travis shares his SEC betting predictions for Week 3 of the 2021 season
If Clay Travis is right, there should be plenty of excitement in the Alabama-Florida matchup this week.
Travis shared his Week 3 gambling predictions on Outkick.com on Thursday, which included a pair of bets for the contest featuring the No. 1 Crimson Tide and No. 11 Gators. And while some think Alabama is going to roll to a big win, Travis seems to think otherwise.
With Alabama as 14.5-point favorites, Travis is picking Florida to cover that spread, either pulling off an upset win or losing by 14 or fewer points. He also believes the Tide and Gators will combine to score more than 58.5 points. If that happens, it should be a thrilling matchup that lives up to the hype.
“I know the Tide is rolling and that [Nick] Saban’s Bama teams have often had their most dominant performances on the road against top 25 opponents, but I just can’t shake the idea that Dan Mullen’s going to be able to keep this one inside of two touchdowns,” Travis wrote.
Here are all of Travis’ Week 3 gambling picks, with SEC predictions in bold:
Michigan State (+6.5) to cover at Miami
Nebraska (+22.5) to cover at Oklahoma
Purdue (+8.5) to cover at Notre Dame
Florida (+14.5) to cover against Alabama
Over 58.5 points for Alabama-Florida
Over 54 points for Old Dominion-Liberty
South Carolina (+32) to cover at Georgia
Penn State (-6) to cover against Auburn
Under 53 points for Auburn-Penn State
Under 49 points for Stanford-Vanderbilt
Under 76.5 points for Tulane-Ole Miss
