Joel Klatt breaks down what the rest of the season looks like for the Crimson Tide after their loss to Tennessee.

Pick via Gambling Analyst Sam Panayotovich:

Texas opened as a 3-point favorite in Las Vegas and that line has been bet all the way out to Texas -6 or -6.5 at most sportsbooks.  

Clearly, respected bettors don’t think Pokes QB Spencer Sanders is healthy. It’s no secret that Sanders has been battling a shoulder injury for a while. Despite not practicing all week before the TCU game, he still went 16-for-36 through the air for 245 yards and ran for 68 yards and two scores.  

I’ll be dialing up my pals in Stillwater over the next few days to see if Sanders is trending in the right direction, but it’s just impossible to know right now. And, while Texas is understandably power-rated pretty high by oddsmakers, this number feels too big to lay on the highway.  

If Sanders can’t go, Gunnar Gundy has the tools to keep it close.

PICK: Oklahoma State (+6.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 6.5 points (or win outright)
