The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers are part of college football’s nastiest and most bitter rivalry. They will renew that rivalry this weekend with much at stake.

Alabama Crimson Tide @ Auburn Tigers - Saturday, November 26

Sports betting line: Alabama -21

Why Alabama Will Win

The college football betting  experts who have helped set this line at 21 points are expecting you to think that since Auburn got destroyed by Georgia, 45-7, and then struggled with Samford University this past weekend (in a 35-16 game that was closer than the final score indicated), the Tigers will fold against Alabama.
Those betting experts just might be right.
Alabama has taken it easy over the past two weeks. The Crimson Tide have taken it easy against Mississippi State and Georgia Southern. Coach Nick Saban’s team was mentally drained by the November 5 loss to LSU, so it didn’t play with a full tank of intensity or energy against Mississippi State on Nov. 12. Then, in preparation for this week’s game against Auburn, Alabama scheduled a cupcake – Georgia Southern – to minimize stress and strain. The Tide jogged through a halfhearted performance knowing that they need to save strength and load up the playbook for their holy-war rival from Auburn. Alabama has essentially taken two weeks off, one to recuperate from the LSU loss and one to gear up for this Auburn encounter. One shouldn’t read too much into the past few weeks for the Crimson Tide. They should be able to regroup for this game and play to the height of their capabilities. If Alabama does that, Auburn will be in huge trouble, and the 21-point spread will be met.

Why Auburn Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this contest, you have to realize that while Alabama will play a lot harder and tougher than it has played in the past two weeks, the Crimson Tide are still not a very  good passing team. Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron simply does not have a big-league arm. He lofted way too many passes, particularly out routes, against LSU. He does not have the NFL-type arm which can exploit a poor secondary, and that’s where Auburn’s leaky defense is particularly vulnerable. To thrash Auburn by more than 21 points, you have to throw the ball against the Tigers. Alabama can’t do that, and as a result, within the tensions of this rivalry game, Auburn really could keep the proceedings interesting for four full quarters. Alabama was the much better team in 2009, the last time these two schools met on Auburn’s home field. Alabama won that game by only five points, 26-21. It seems that we’re headed for a similar outcome this Saturday.

Who Will Win

It’s definitely Alabama’s game to lose, and it’s hard to imagine the Tide failing on Saturday. Trent Richardson is too good a running back; he will get the tough yards Alabama needs to win this game. However, a blowout seems unlikely. Auburn will stay close because the Tide can’t throw. Take Alabama to win the game, but Auburn to cover.
