Vanderbilt-Alabama Prediction

Vandy is finally through its tougher first half of the conference season. Vandy should be the odds on favorite to win a series at Alabama. However, no team should be taken lightly in the SEC this season. Just ask Ole Miss who lost a series in Oxford to struggling Kentucky last weekend. The Commodores are the clear favorites though. Vanderbilt 2 wins, Alabama 1 win.
