The Rebels are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games in October and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Rebels are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Auburn and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings overall.
I'm not sure why the Rebels are such big favorites on the road considering they've been a team that's been up and down as of late. Auburn has shown flashes over the last couple of weeks and should be able to score here. I really like Auburn and the free touchdown.
