According to oddsmakers at, Auburn is favored in this bowl game, as the Tigers are getting odds of -3 points against Memphis. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 63 points. These two meet today at Noon ET on ESPN. The game will be played from Legion Field in Birmingham, AL.

Lynch has quickly emerged as a top NFL prospect thanks to his 2015 season where he has thrown for 3,670 yards and 28 touchdowns with just three interceptions while completing 69 percent of his passes. Lynch has led Memphis (9-3, 6-5-1 ATS) to a strong season where it looks to pick up a second win over an SEC opponent, as the Tigers already own a 37-24 win over Ole Miss. Today, Lynch and the Tigers meet up with another set of Tigers in Auburn (6-6, 3-9 ATS).

Auburn has had a very disappointing season, mainly due to a defense that can’t make a lot of stops. The Tigers are 74th nationally against the pass, giving up 232.2 yards per game. That could mean big things for Lynch. Oddsmakers feel like the junior QB will have a big day, as his over/under for passing yards in the game at 315.5. Lynch has had eight games over 300 yards this season, including 384 yards in the win over Ole Miss. He has ended his regular season a little quiet, but knowing this game could do a lot for his draft stock, look for him to have a good day throwing the ball. 316 should definitely be obtainable.
