LSU and Alabama meet in a pivotal SEC contest on Saturday night, and it’s already the most-bet game of the day by a wide margin.

Despite the bet volume, the line hasn’t moved much all week. It’s just sat around Alabama -14. At most books, some sharp money has moved it to -13.5 and -14.5 at various spots as bettors shop for the best line around a key number.

This line closed at -13 at some books, -13.5 at others, and stayed firm at -14 at Pinnacle.

We’ll update this post throughout the day until the game kicks off at 8 p.m. ET.
