ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I was going to take a stab on Auburn here, but the line’s a little too thin for that. You could make a case either way, though. It’ll be a fun matchup. The Tigers have faced some tough opponents lately with mixed results. That said, Auburn is still scoring well (even in this 1-4 stretch) with 77 or more points in three of the last four games. Coming back home for the first time since February 1 will certainly help as well. As for Alabama, they had zero issues with Florida in their last game, shooting a nice 49.3 percent from the field with 45 total rebounds. The Tide have scored 69 or more points in four straight games so it’ll take a big offensive push for Auburn to keep the pace.
