Alabama is 4-1 against the spread against the SEC, 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, and 6-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Auburn is 9-20-1 against the spread following a loss, 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games, and 1-6 against the spread in their last seven road games. The home team has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
This is a big number but Auburn has done nothing on the road to inspire me to believe in them so my play here is just a lean to Alabama.
