Commodores Put Winning Streak on the Line Against Rival Alabama

The Vanderbilt Commodores are gunning for a fourth straight outright win as underdogs on their home turf at Vanderbilt Stadium as they take on the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in a Week 4 matchup. Vanderbilt is coming off a 14-7 win over Kansas State as a 4.5-point underdog but faces a Crimson Tide squad that is riding an 11-0 SU win streak on the road.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in Alabama’s last five games against Vanderbilt.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 15 of Vanderbilt’s last 18 games against its conference.
  • Vanderbilt is 4-0 ATS in its last four games at home against teams with winning records.

With its win over the Wildcats in Week 3, Vanderbilt has opened the season on a 3-0 SU run for the first time since 2011. The Commodores have also won five in a row at home, covering in three of those contests. Vanderbilt has failed to pick up a SU win in 30 games as a double-digit home underdog, dating back to 1997, but has covered in five of its past six.

The Crimson Tide maintained their position atop the AP Top 25 rankings with a 41-23 win over visiting Colorado State, but failed to cover as massive 31-point chalk to fall to a mediocre 3-5 ATS in their past eight outings. However, Alabama has been a reliable bet during an 11-game road winning streak, covering in seven of their past eight away contests.

Alabama has also dominated the Commodores historically, winning SU in 35 of 36 meetings dating back to 1970, but has covered just once in its past four visits to Vanderbilt. The Crimson Tide are also 27-1 SU as double-digit road underdogs, but have covered in just three of their past seven.
