Alabama have had issues at times this season, but they are coming off an impressive victory in the last game.

Alabama is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games played on Tuesday. Alabama is 2-10-1 against the spread in their last 13 games. The over is 6-0 in Alabama’s last road games against a team with a winning home record. The over is 6-1 in Alabama’s last seven road games.
Alabama looked good in the last game, but they are going to struggle against this Auburn defense and that is going to be the difference in this game. Look for Auburn to score at least 80 points, and that will be the difference. Back Auburn against the spread. This is a total I would stay far away from.
