UPDATE 2 P.M. ET SATURDAY: Ninety minutes before kickoff, Alabama is a 2-point favorite in TwinSpires' college foootball odds Week 6 market. The Crimson Tided opened -3 and stopped at -2.5 on the way to -2.

Alabama is seeing 60% of spread tickets, while 59% of spread dollars are on Texas A&M.

"Sharp play on Texas A&M +3 and +2.5," TwinSpires' Zachary Lucas said.

The total nudged from 49.5 to 50 early in the week, then receded all the way to 45.5 by this afternoon, with stops at 49, 48 and 46. The Over is netting 59% of tickets, but 69% of cash is on the Under.

"We're flooded with Under money. We'll need the Over for a good amount," Lucas said.

UPDATE 5 P.M. ET THURSDAY: Alabama opened -3.5 and steadily made its way down to -1 by this morning at PointsBet. The Crimson Tide made stops at every half-point along the way: -3/-2.5/-2/-1.5.

That said, spread action is overwhelmingly on 'Bama, with ticket count 5/1 and practically every dollar on the Tide at PointsBet. And Alabama is getting a huge majority of moneyline play, as well.

UPDATE 3 P.M. ET MONDAY: Alabama (4-1 SU/3-2 ATS) needs to dodge a second loss to stay on track in the SEC – and in the CFP chase. In Week 5, the Crimson Tide closed as 16.5-point road favorites and dumped Mississippi State 40-17.

Texas A&M (4-1 SU and ATS) is on a three-game SU and ATS upswing. The Aggies, 6.5-point neutral-site favorites against Arkansas, notched a 34-22 victory at AT&T Stadium.

TwinSpires nudged 'Bama from -3 to -2.5. The Crimson Tide are taking 65% of early spread bets/53% of early spread dollars.
