Pick Against The Spread

Auburn certainly didn’t look outclassed in their two losses
losing by three to USC and by nine to Memphis in a game that their rust from not playing in seven
days may have been a big factor. Tonight’s opponent isn’t in the same class as the two teams
above, making the -4.5 line decent value. I also like the total here. Take Auburn -4.5 and Over 138.5.
