When in doubt, always check with Vegas. Is the star running back injured, or is your coach just exercising a bit gamesmanship and calling him daily? Is the point protector poised for a big match, or did he have a little too much fun last night away from home? Vegas does not always know, but the handicappers can oftentimes be a good guide to the truth. Those trusty betting lines can teach us things if we’re paying attention. What can Vegas instruct us about Alabama? Well, if you’ve been paying attention to college football, then you know 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’s splitting 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 allow Ole Miss to prepare just one quarterback this weekend if he could create the Land Sharks prepare for two? Is Tagovailoa and Hurts going to continue to split time now that SEC play has begun? Vegas believes it knows the answer, and also the handicappers are all in on Tua. Earlier this week, the Heisman futures made Tagovailoa the clear favorite for the award, shrinking his odds of winning it into 3-to-1. He’s now the odds-on preferred to win it, which is a pretty good sign that Ole Miss is about to have a huge dose of this Tua Show on Saturday at Oxford. You understand who continues to fail at putting on a show? Joe. Joe went 4-4 against the spread last week after starting the season 1-7. He cried, in different words, but Joe will have to do a lot better to grab the Pro. Take a look at last week! Read more: sportscoverage.net
