Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (odds)
Record: 10-1 Overall / 6-1 Conference
The Crimson Tide added to their list of victims, as they defeated the Arkansas Razorbacks at home last Saturday, 42-35. Quarterback Bryce Young did what he had to do — and more. He passed for 559 yards and five touchdowns on 31/40 completions to further strengthen his chance to win the Heisman Trophy. Meanwhile, running back Brian Robinson Jr. rushed for 122 yards on 27 carries. It’s hard to imagine Auburn bottling up Young and Robinson at the same time, given the Tigers’ middling defense. The Tigers began Week 12 just 43rd nationally in scoring defense and 70th in total defense. As for Alabama, it has a top-five offense and top-10 passing attack.
Alabama, which defeated the Tigers in the Iron Bowl in 2020, is 6-4 against the spread in its last 10 games versus Auburn, dating back to 2011.
Betting on the Auburn Tigers (odds)
Record: 6-5 Overall / 3-4 Conference
Auburn is now below .500 in conference play after suffering a 21-17 road loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks in Week 12. That’s the Tigers’ third loss in a row. Despite all the losing of late, Auburn is a team that can’t be taken lightly. It could be remembered that the Tigers have wins against the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Ole Miss Rebels. Then again, Auburn had Bo Nix under center in those games. Nix missed the South Carolina game with a foot injury and is done for the season, thus leaving the Tigers with TJ Finley. The backup quarterback went 17/32 with a touchdown and 188 passing yards and zero interceptions in the loss to South Carolina. With an unproven QB, Auburn will look to turn to running back Tank Bigsby more. Bigsby had 164 rushing yards and a touchdown on 22 carries against the Gamecocks.
Auburn is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 home games.
Alabama wins, 40-13.
