Featured Game | Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Auburn Tigers

Why the Crimson Tide can cover

Despite his trouble putting games away, Alabama is one of the best in FBS on both sides of the ball. Reigning Heisman Champion Bryce Young leads offense and star pass rusher Will Anderson commands the defensive end, and the Tide are fourth in FBS on points spread at plus 22.8 per game. They are 6-0 at home and 4-1 against the spread, and the home team is 5-0 ATS in the last five Iron Bowls. Young leads an offense that averages 40 points (sixth in FBS) and 472 yards per contest (17th), and he has 2,644 passing yards, 24 TDs and four interceptions.

Receivers Ja’Corey Brooks and Jermaine Burton have more than 500 receiving yards and six TDs apiece. Jahmyr Gibbs and Jase McClellan have combined 1,343 rushing yards and 11 TDs, and Auburn allows nearly 175 yards per game on the ground (93rd). Tide defense allows for 4.4 yards per game (4th in FBS) and 108 rushing yards (14th). Auburn’s offensive prowess is down as she runs the ball in 31st but through the air in 115th so Bama will force the Tigers to throw. Anderson, who has eight sacks, will be looking forward to it.

Why the tigers can cover

Williams, a star who ran back for the Tigers from 2001-04, seems to have gotten the team going and they could play hard to get him the full-time job. They’ll also be desperate for the win, which can secure a 10th straight bowl berth in a season that’s been rapidly going downhill. Alabama is strong against the run, but that’s what Auburn does best, so Tank Bigsby will see a lot of work. The junior is 36th in the nation with 907 rushing yards and has 10 TDs. Quarterback Robby Ashford will make for a different look as he has 589 yards on the ground.

Ashford has struggled as a passer, but he has strong options to throw at, with receivers Koy Moore and Ja’Varrius Johnson and running back Jarquez Hunter each averaging at least 14.9 yards per catch. Bigsby ran for 110 yards in last week’s win while Hunter ran for 109 yards and threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Moore. The Tigers’ defense has 12 takeaways and 26 sacks. Defensive end Derick Hall has 6.5 sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. Auburn is 4-0 ATS in its last four games in November and 4-3 ATS in its SEC games this season.
