Alabama is 21-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 13-5 against the spread following a loss, and 1-5 against the spread against a team with a losing record. Auburn is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, 1-6 against the spread following a win, and 2-7 against the spread in their last nine road games. The home team has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
The total is rising to 139 but I still don’t see much scoring and I like the under.
