Coming into Saturday's college football Week 7 games, I was curious as to whether or not our PRO betting tools would show anything interesting for Alabama vs. Mississippi State.
Just one week ago the majority of fans, bettors and mainstream media analysts were penciling the Crimson Tide into the College Football Playoff as though it was a foregone conclusions.
But low and behold, Alabama fell to Texas A&M, shocking the college football world.
Nick Saban's team clearly isn't out of the playoff race just yet, and its road back starts with Saturday's game against Mississippi State.
Alabama is a big 17-point road favorite in this matchup, so the market expects the Tide to win with relative ease.
But from a college football betting perspective, should we expect a bounce back from Bama? Or are 17 points simply too much to lay with a wounded Tide team?
Interestingly, our College Football PRO Report provides a strong answer as this game is among the three smartest bets for Saturday's Week 7 slate.

While I spent the entire portion of the introduction above talking about the value with Alabama vs. Mississippi State — and rightfully so based on the betting value indicators — you can make a valid argument that Fresno State vs. Wyoming is also in the running for Saturday's smartest college football bet.
