Saturday’s Ole Miss vs. Alabama college football showdown has been an early hammer for many sharp bettors.

As soon as Circa Sports in Las Vegas opened this spread, the sportsbook quickly took more than 10 limit bets on the Rebels, forcing it to adjust Ole Miss down from +20 to the current line of +15.

But wiseguys didn’t stop there.

According to Action Labs’ Bet Signals data, smart money has also pounded the Ole Miss vs. Alabama total, driving this price up from 76.5 to 79.5, and even to 80 at some shops.

These are both very notable line moves for such a high-profile matchup, but has this early-week odds movement gone to far?

According to our College Football PRO Projections, one of these adjustments is just right, while the other has simply gone too far and is now ready for buyback.

Here’s the Mississippi vs. Alabama wager our model projects as a very reasonable betting edge for Saturday’ matchup
