I'm really not a fan of laying chalk this big, but the Saint Peter's Peacocks haven't done much right on either side of the court and are now going up against an Auburn Tigers club that's been one of the more balanced teams in the country. Auburn has also blown teams out when a big favorite, as we saw it against South Alabama, Washington and Arizona. So, while I won't be playing this myself, it's Auburn or pass for me.
