Line Movement

Auburn hit the board as a 36-point home favorite, but the line has been bet down by two full points at most sports books. The biggest movement, however, has been with the total. That opened at 52 and was bet all the way up to 59.5.

OUR PREDICTION: The Eagles are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five games versus the SEC, have covered in 12 of their last 17 non-conference games, and are 9-4 against the number in their last 13 games played in September. On the other side, the Tigers have struggled out of the gates under Gus Malzahn, failing to cover in seven out of their last 10 games in September. The Tigers are lined up to have a great season, but this is a big opening number and I like the dogs here.
