I’ve heard a lot of discussion on ESPN talk radio this week about Alabama upsetting Clemson. I just don’t see it happening. To be fair Big Al sees the potential for an upset by the tide, but likes Memphis getting a TD better. There’s also the Saban curse (being named the most powerful man in sports - now that’s bulletin board material). The betting value is in the line. A close game in college is often decided by 3-6 points, Memphis is getting a TD and also has the history against Mississippi. While Alabama is getting 4.5 points on the road against what looks to be a superior opponent. Keep in mind the folks at ESPN motives might have something to do with hyping viewer interest in the game. We don’t make an investment based on interest in a game. We’ll stick with our Memphis pick and say later this afternoon in a game flying under the radar they’ll play the Rebels tougher than Alabama plays the Tigers.
