We made it! WagerTalk is very excited to once again be working with the great folks at Touchdown Alabama Magazine. Our goal for the Bettin’ on ‘Bama segment is to provide Crimson Tide fans with a different perspective on how professional bettors and bookmakers view their team each week.
When the SEC schedule was announced, Alabama opened as a 21-point favorite for this Week 1 clash at Missouri. After the Tigers reported some Covid-19 issues a couple weeks ago, that line is now all the way up to -27.5 in a lot of spots. As of Friday morning, roughly 83-percent of betting tickets and 96-percent of dollars wagered have been placed on Alabama. The over/under for the game is 56 points.
