Auburn set for slaughter; Ole Miss can score on Alabama

When in doubt, check with Vegas.
Is your star running back injured, or is your trainer just exercising a little gamesmanship and phoning him daily? Is the point protector poised for a big game, or did he have a little too much fun last night from home? Vegas doesn’t always know, but the handicappers can oftentimes be a great guide to the reality.
Those trusty betting lines can teach us things if we’re paying attention. What can Vegas teach us about Alabama?
Well, if you have been paying attention to college football, you then understand Alabama coach Nick Saban has played with his starting quarterback position close to the vest. At first he wouldn’t name a starter, and now he is dividing time between Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. Why? It’s not from the graciousness of heart.
Saban has two great quarterbacks, and he needs every edge over his enemies. Why enable Ole Miss to prepare just one quarterback this weekend if he can create the Land Sharks prepare for two?
Is Tagovailoa and Hurts going to continue to split time now that SEC drama has started? Vegas believes it knows the answer, and also the handicappers are in on Tua. Before this week, the Heisman futures made Tagovailoa the obvious favorite for the award, decreasing his likelihood of winning it into 3-to-1.
He’s now the odds-on favorite to win it, which is a fairly good indication that Ole Miss is about to have a large dose of this Tua Show on Saturday in Oxford. You understand who continues to fail at putting on a show? Joe.
Joe went 4-4 against the spread last week after beginning the season 1-7. He rallied, in different words, but Joe will need to perform a great deal better to grab the Guru. Take a look at last week!
