Chattanooga Mocs Betting Trends
Chattanooga’s betting trends show an uneven picture. Over their last six November matches and Saturday matches they are 4-2, but their track record as an underdog – going 0-10 straight games without winning (and 0-11 on the road) raises concerns regarding their ability to handle high-pressure matches against top teams like Alabama.
Alabama Crimson Tide Betting Trends
Alabama’s betting trends illustrate their consistency and dominance at home, where they have gone 19-1 SU in their last 20 games at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Overall they have won their last eight games (eight unbeaten) with five consecutive 5-0 victories during November highlighting their strength at this time in the season. Unfortunately though, 5-13 against-the-spread in Week 12 games shows some inconsistency covering large spreads.
