Minnesota vs. Auburn,

Score: 31 - 24
Point Spread: -7/-105 Auburn
I'm playing on AUBURN. I believe that this line could easily be higher. Keep in mind that Auburn beat Alabama last game. It also very nearly defeated both LSU and Georgia, losing by three and seven. While the Gophers have indeed had a great season, their schedule hasn't been nearly as tough as the one Auburn had to contend with. Not even close. Other than being more "battle-tested," the Tigers have the superior defense. Both teams score 34 ppg. However, the Tigers allow 18.6 while Minnesota allows 22.6. Again, that came against a schedule that included the likes of LSU, Alabama, Georgia and Oregon. The Tigers are 6-2 ATS the past eight times that they were favored in the -3.5 to -10 range. During that span, the Gophers were 3-5 ATS as underdogs in the 3.5 to 10 range. Look for Auburn to improve to 4-1 ATS the past five times it was favored on a neutral field.
