Alabama vs. Kansas State prediction, line: Tide will cover again

Alabama entered Saturday the best against-the-spread team in college basketball at 14-3. The Crimson Tide have an interesting contest in the SEC-Big 12 Challenge against Kansas State, which will be playing shorthanded because two players were suspended after their brawl earlier in the week with Kansas.

Not having those extra bodies could be an issue against an Alabama team that has been pushing the pace this season, ranking third in the nation in possessions per game. Kansas State has been able to slow down games, rating 271st in this category, but having fewer players available could cause things to get away from the Wildcats early.

Alabama should continue to be a cash cow and win by double digits.

The play: Alabama, -8¹/₂ points.
