HRWager’s Football tip on Saturday is for the Iron Bowl. This rivalry game has one team in national spotlight while the other is shirking from the attention. For the 6-5 Auburn Tigers, this year saw them almost lose to Jacksonville State. Now they have to host the Crimson Tide who are on their annual march towards bowl games and national championship appearances. Can the home town Tigers cover a mammoth fourteen and a half point spread in this 3:30 PM game?
Football Tip : Lack of Quality Yards
Here is where Auburn suffers this year. Production lacks because of a two quarterback system that can not produce one starter. When Idaho and San Jose State both outgain you in their perspective contests then you just lack the talent to make inroads against Alabama. Word coming out of Auburn has two different forms of attack. First, they want to run right at the Tide. Good luck with that! Secondly, one is going to see a vast array of formations and trick plays. This is more realistic and might produce one jailbreak score. Other than that, it is going to be a long day for the Tigers.
Posting a High Number
One could see the Tigers being held to say ten or so points. This puts the onus on the Tide rushing attack to score thirty for a degree of safety ATS. There should be little problem there as the physical dominance on both sides of the ball is the greatest this rivalry has seen in perhaps a decade. Bama has stayed consistent while the Tigers slid off the map once again.
Our Free Pick to Plunder on this Iron Bowl is the Tide at – 14 1/2. Yes there is bloat on the line to attempt to balance betting but the Tide are good up to twenty here. Saban does not forget teams that spite his national championship attempts. Pulling no punches, the square pick is the path to profit today. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
