    What to know about the Alabama Crimson Tide (2-0)

     
    Alabama vs South Carolina 2019 NCAAF Week 3 moneyline odds for the Crimson Tide: -2564
     
    The perennial power Alabama already has a couple of blowouts under their belts in 2019. They dusted Duke and New Mexico State while only giving up 13 points in the process. QB Tua Tagovailoa is compiling Heisman-worthy stats so far. The talented Tide should have no problem dicing up the Gamecocks in Week 2.

    You should also take note that OL Chris Owens is questionable with an unspecified injury and Tua Tagovailoa is doing great as he’s thrown 556 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2019 alone.
     

    What to know about the South Carolina Gamecocks (1-1)

     
    Alabama vs South Carolina 2019 NCAAF Week 3 moneyline odds for the Gamecocks: +1075
     
    The Gamecocks put up an impressive 72 points in their Week 2 matchup against Charleston Southern. It was a solid bounce back for them after dropping their opener to UNC. They were able to move the ball with ease in the air and on the ground. But now they’ll be facing a new level of opponents.

    The Alabama Crimson Tide will give the South Carolina offense some trouble. If South Carolina want to be in the mix, they’ll have to be extremely physical in the trenches with Alabama’s big men.

    Don’t expect anything from OL Eric Douglas as he’s questionable with an unspecified injury. WR Shi Smith left week 2 early with a chest injury and his status for week 3 is uncertain.
