In the spirit of this week, the WagerTalk team would like to give thanks to our friends at Touchdown Alabama for a wonderful first season of videos, podcasts, articles, and betting banter. Let’s close the regular season out with a winner in the Iron Bowl. Alabama is a -3.5 road favorite on Saturday afternoon, with the total at 50 points.

We’ve mentioned this a couple times through out the course of the season, but a handful of sports books put out “Games of the Year” where they offer point spreads on high-profile games that bettors can wager on as early as May. The Golden Nugget in Las Vegas opened this game Alabama -13 over the summer. After the first two weeks of the regular season, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook had Alabama -17. Here we are two months later looking at a point spread of only a field goal.
