Alabama vs. Southern Miss Betting Preview

If you laid the points last week against South Carolina (like I did), you have my condolences. A missed extra point and a missed short field goal would have eliminated the possibility of a back-door cover, but the Gamecocks snuck a late touchdown past Alabama’s back-up defense in the last minute of the game. Let’s see if the gambling gods can give one back to Alabama bettors this weekend against Southern Miss.

Alabama vs. Southern Miss Betting Preview

Alabama sits at 1-2 against the spread this season with those two missed covers coming by two points (New Mexico State) and one point (South Carolina). The Tide have opened as a 39-point favorite this week against the Golden Eagles. Southern Miss is 2-1 both straight-up and against the spread. They defeated FCS-level Alcorn State by 28 in Week 1, lost to Mississippi State by 23 in Week 2, then picked up a nice road win over Troy as an underdog last week.
