Moneyline: AUB: (+980) | ALA: (-2000)
Spread: AUB: +22.5 (-115) | ALA: -22.5 (-105)
Total: 49.5 — Over: (-110) | Under: (-110)
Alabama enters this rivalry game as a big favorite on the spread (-22.5) and moneyline (-2000). A major upset win by Auburn returns nearly 10/1 odds, or +980. The total is up 2 points from Sunday’s opener in Las Vegas, and currently sits at 49.5 points – about a TD below an average over/under compared to other college football games this week.
Alabama will get their 10th win of the season against Auburn, but won’t play in the SEC Championship Game due to a 32-31 loss at LSU. In that game earlier this month, the ‘Tide still had 465 yards offense and out-gained LSU by nearly 100 yards but lost in overtime.
Alabama won’t let up against an inferior Auburn team that now has ‘Cadillac’ Williams as its interim coach. Auburn’s run defense and effort has been better under Williams since he took over this month. But the Tigers still allow nearly 400 yards per game. But against the better SEC teams, Auburn lost all four games and allowed 39 points and 357 passing yards to Mississippi State, and Arkansas rolled up 41 points and 520 yards. Ole Miss and Georgia? Another 500+ yards allowed and 48 and 42 points against Auburn. The Tigers played one of their best games against LSU at home when LSU wasn’t playing well, and Auburn lost 21-17.
Sure the rivalry brings out bigger efforts, but Alabama should stomp Auburn like they did here in 2020 by a count of 42-13. Let’s call it the same.
Final Score Prediction: Alabama: 42 | Auburn: 13

The Iron Bowl brings out the biggest in emotions, energy and effort. Last year was another example despite Alabama being ranked No. 3 and Auburn unranked. In the storied series history’s first ever overtime game last season, Alabama escaped with a 24-22 four overtime win as a 20.5 point favorite.
Despite going just 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games, Alabama has still scored at least 30 points in each contest. That shouldn’t be a problem against this year’s Auburn team.
Bet: Alabama -22.5 (-110)
