The Auburn Tigers have lost four of their last five games and sit in 12th place in the SEC standings. Auburn is 5-12 in the SEC and 1-9 on the road this season.

Auburn has just one SEC road win this season.
Texas A&M is 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, 6-1 against the spread against the SEC, and 5-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record. Auburn is 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 road games, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a winning record.
My free pick in this game is going to be on the total and while it is on the rise I still like the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
