Alabama vs Tennessee Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 8

by Mason AsherOctober 22, 2021
  • Alabama will score more than 50 points in the game
  • Bryce Young will throw for over 350 yards against Tennessee
  • Tennessee will be held to under 150 yards rushing

A big SEC matchup is on tap this weekend as the Tennessee Volunteers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide. Tennessee sits at 4-3 this season but have been playing really well as of late. Alabama is 6-1 on the season and is ranked #4 in the country, even after a loss to an unranked Texas A&M team. Tennessee almost escaped with a win last week against #13 Ole Miss while Alabama drubbed Mississippi State on the road.

This is going to be a closer game than most people think as Tennessee is playing really well right now. I think that the Volunteers have the ability to hang with Alabama and not just be an assured blowout like it has been in the past. This is going to be a really interesting game to see how both of these teams respond.

Alabama vs Tennessee Prediction: Spread

Tennessee has proven the ability to score the ball this season and take care of the ball at the same time. The Volunteers have only thrown one interception this season and I think that helps them against a stout Alabama defense. Both of these teams can run the ball well combining for an average of 410 yards per game on the ground. I look for this to be a really good game but Tennessee will sneak a cover.

  • Free Prediction: Tennessee +25

Alabama vs Tennessee Prediction: MoneyLine

This game is predicted to be such a blowout that there is no moneyline listed. If you can find it, I would put some money on Tennessee as a long shot. That will give you the best value.

Alabama vs Tennessee Prediction: Total

I think this is going to hit the under because of the strong run game of both of these teams. They are going to look to slow the game down just a bit and that plays right into the hands of Tennessee. Both pass defenses are solid so I think that we will see a lot of running the ball on early downs. Look for this one to be a 35-21 type contest.

  • Free Prediction: Under 67.5
