AUBURN, AL (TheSpread) – Auburn was a win away from the national championship last season. Can the Tigers put together another strong season in 2014?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for Auburn has been set at 9.5 this season. The over has odds of +130, while the under has a money line of -160.

Auburn had a surprising season under Guz Malzahn, who was in his first season as coach. The Tigers went 12-2 overall and 7-1 in the SEC, losing to Florida State in the BCS Championship Game, 34-31.

This season, Auburn hopes to create more offense like it did in 2013, averaging 39.5 points and 501.3 yards per game. Auburn has seven starters back on offense, led by quarterback Nick Marshall, who threw for 1,976 yards and rushed for 1,068. Marshall has most of his offensive line back this year and his top receiving target in Sammie Coates, who had 42 catches for 902 yards a year ago. The Tigers must find a replacement for Tre Mason at running back, but Auburn has Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant back, who each had over 600 yards in 2013.

Defensively, the Tigers allowed 24.7 points and 420.7 yards per game a year ago. Those numbers may need to improve if Auburn is going to contend in the SEC this year. The Tigers have six starters back on defense for next season, but one non-starter that should make a difference is sophomore defensive end Carl Lawson, who had four sacks in limited action last year. Cassanova McKinzy is back to lead the linebackers after racking up 75 tackles in 2013.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Auburn starts the season with SEC play, hosting Arkansas on Sept. 30. Non-conference play follows with a trip to Kansas State as its toughest challenge. When it comes to conference action, Auburn will host LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M, but hit the road for meetings with Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama. With a lot of questions coming into the season, the Tigers are facing a real tough quest to get to 10 wins when you consider the road schedule. Auburn will likely not win the SEC this year, which means it can only lose three games to get to 10 wins, with the bowl game included. Auburn could be out of the running for 10 wins even before bowl season.
