(November 19, 2022) - The Alabama Crimson Tide football team, once ranked as the most likely to win the College Football Playoff Championship in 2022-23, had suffered two losses ahead of its game versus the Austin Peay Governors, where they were listed as a -43 favorite.  The team had not been particularly profitable for sports bettors either as it owned a 5-5 record Against The Spread. The team did have its first ranked road win in three attempts, which helped the Tide move up one spot in the College Football Playoff rankings to No. 8. Alabama sat just four spots out of the playoff race currently. Its odds of winning the 2022-23 College Football Playoff Championship had dropped all the way to +25000 at FanDuel.

The Alabama vs. Auburn game line opened very early at Alabama -24.  Despite their 4-6 record, Auburn was still appearing within the top 50 of the Sagarin Ratings at No. 48.  We get a magic number of 18.78, indicating an overlay of up to 6 points

Overlays of greater than five points in games we've analyzed this season have gone: 2-12.
