Alabama still has the 2 best players in college football in QB Bryce Young and LB Will Anderson Jr.

With this duo as well as RB Jahmyr Gibbs,this game will get out of hand early.

Bama leads 62-18-4 and has won 22 straight in the series, including a 59-0 victory in the last meeting in 2017.

Money line (ML): Off the board Against the spread (ATS): Vanderbilt +40.5 (-112) | Alabama -40.5 (-108)

Vanderbilt has already beaten their season projected total of 2.5 wins. They did this with a victory on Saturday against Northern Illinois.

 No matter what happens the rest of the way, this season has been a step forward for coach Clark Lee and the Commodores.

 This rest of the season for Vanderbilt will be tough in SEC play and it starts this week on the road against 1 of the best in the country.

Although Saturday will be the 85th time the schools have met, it’s only the 7th game since 2000.
