#3 Alabama (-16.0) 33 KENTUCKY 13

Over/Under Total: 47.0
09:20 AM Pacific Time Saturday, Oct-03

Alabama has been the nation's most impressive team so far, as the Crimson Tide have dominated on both sides of the ball, out-gaining their opponents 7.2 yards per play to 3.5 yppl and rating at 1.8 yppl better than average on offense and 2.0 yppl better than average defensively while also being good in special teams.

Kentucky is a below average team that has no chance of competing in this game if Alabama is focused. However, the Tide apply to a negative 34-88-1 ATS road favorite letdown situation based on last week's impressive win over Arkansas and Kentucky applies to a solid 101-47-2 ATS home bounce-back situation.

The technical analysis is enough to keep me from making Alabama a Best Bet here, but I'll still lean with the Crimson Tide.
