Week 3 in college football features a top-notch SEC battle between Alabama and Florida, while other top teams face some pretty big spreads.
Alabama Crimson Tide at Florida Gators (+16/59) – Matchup Report
The top ranked Crimson Tide get their first real test of the season this week when they travel to the swamp to face the Gators. Alabama has won 16 straight with an 11-5 record against the spread. They did let down bettors last week in a 48-14 win over Mercer as a 54-point favorite.
Florida has also been a letdown for bettors at 0-2 ATS despite their 2-0 record SU. Last week they failed to cover as 29-point favorites in their 42-20 win over South Florida. At home Florida is 12-1 SU and 7-4-2 ATS in their last 13, but as a home underdog they’re only 4-5 SU and 5-4 ATS in their last nine.
Last season Alabama defeated Florida 52-46 as a 16-point favorite. That was the Crimson Tide’s seventh straight in versus the Gators during which they’re 5-2 ATS.
