The Line: Auburn Tigers -32.5 -- Over/Under:
The Auburn Tigers and the Idaho Vandals face off on Saturday in a Week 12 College Football matchup.
The Auburn Tigers are 5-5 this season and are coming off of bad loss to Georgia in a game the led at the half. The Auburn offense is averaging 25.7 points and 368.7 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 13 times. Auburn QB Sean White has been banged up and he played some but he split time with Jeremy Johnson though he should be ready to go this week. Peyton Barber is Auburn’s top rusher with 900 yards and 12 touchdowns and Ricardo Louis is their top receiver with 40 receptions and two touchdowns. The Auburn defense is allowing 26.5 points and 411.8 yards per game with 11 interceptions, four fumble recoveries, and 14 sacks. Johnathan Ford is the Tigers leading tackler with 97, Kris Frost has 83 tackles, and Casanova McKinzy has 66 tackles including five sacks. Auburn needs a win to become bowl eligible.
The Idaho Vandals are 3-7 this season and they have struggled against the tougher opponents. Idaho is averaging 29.2 points and 415.4 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 18 times. Vandals QB Matt Linehan has completed 63.6 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and he has rushed for three touchdowns.

Auburn is 6-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 2-6 against the spread following a loss, and 1-8 against the spread in their last nine home games. Idaho is 4-1 against the spread following a loss, 3-1-1 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, and 17-39-1 against the spread in their last 57 non-conference games.
This is a big number but I can see Auburn covering it.
