Auburn Vs Alabama College Football Free Picks
When you have a major rivalry game in college football, you can generally look back over the history of the match-up and see that each team has had periods where they have dominated the other. This is certainly true in the Iron Bowl, which is the annual meeting between the Auburn Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Those of you who have even a passing interest in college football will know that Alabama has been perhaps the most dominant program in the last 10 years, with head coach Nick Saban turning things around there in a real hurry. As you might expect, success in the Iron Bowl has come with that, and with this match-up always coming so late in the season, it is often the game that decides which of these two teams wins the SEC West, which is arguably the toughest conference in the college game. The online college football odds are likely going to favor the Crimson Tide again this year, but you never know what might happen in a game of this magnitude.

Why bet on the Auburn Tigers
Auburn Tigers are coming off a less than impressive 7-6 season, and a big reason for their poor showing was a 2-6 record in conference play. That losing record included a defeat at the hands of the Crimson Tide, who rolled to a rather comfortable 29-13 win. All told, the Tigers are 3-6 versus Alabama in the Nick Saban era, and they have only managed a single win in Tuscaloosa during that stretch. This certainly does not bode well for them heading into this season, although it is expected that Auburn will be better this year than they were is 2015. If things go south again in 2016, we may well see some big changes go down in that part of the state.
Why bet on the Alabama Crimson Tide
The Alabama Crimson Tide come into the season as champions, and they are going to stay that way until someone can knock them off the throne. That is a task that is easier said than done, although there are a couple of questions marks about this team coming into the season. There are some concerns about the QB position, which there always seems to be, and you also have to wonder how the defense is going to look now that Kirby Smart has moved on to take the head coaching positon in Georgia. If Saban has proven anything in his time at Alabama, it’s that he can reload on the field and off. I’m pretty sure that Alabama are going to be just fine.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I’m going to avoid making an actual final score prediction right now, as it’s just too early to go that bold. What I will say is that I do believe that Alabama will win once again, in what should be a low-scoring affair.
