— The Crimson Tide have won those past four Iron Bowl matchups at Bryant-Denny Stadium by a combined score of 186-77. The closest margin of victory in those four games is 11 points.

— Auburn is 4-3 ATS this season, and that includes a 1-0 ATS record as an underdog. The Tigers are 7-8 ATS as a road underdog under Gus Malzahn since 2013.

Three things to watch

Who controls the ground? Both teams have excellent running backs in Najee Harris (797 yards, 16 touchdowns) and Tank Bigsby (527 yards, 5 TDs). Both defenses allow 4.0 yards or fewer per carry. The team that can break through that will be set up in the passing game. There is more pressure on Auburn here — and Bigsby must combine with Bo Nix to hit explosive plays early in the running game.

Nix vs. Jones, Part II. The same quarterbacks are back from last year's shootout, and Nix led the victory despite completing just 50 percent of his passes. He didn't commit turnovers, and he offered a threat in the running game. Jones had 335 passing yards in last year's game, but he also threw two costly interceptions.

Updated betting odds for Alabama vs . Auburn list the Tide as a 4-point favorite. They opened -3 on Sunday in Las Vegas. No strings attached. No rollover required. The 2019 Iron Bowl took a hit for the worse when Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa injured his hip and was ruled out for the

Three of the last eight Iron Bowls have been Alabama blowouts by 28 points or more. Considering the fact that this game will be more important to Auburn than whatever bowl game it ends up going to, look for the Tigers to come out fired up as a 9.5-point underdog on the college football odds and

Defensive playmakers. Who steps up and makes the game-changing play on that defensive side of the ball? Neither team has a player with more than three sacks this season. Auburn has 16 sacks and seven interceptions. Alabama has 14 sacks and eight interceptions. The Crimson Tide (+5) and Tigers (+4) have similar turnover margins, too.

Stat that matters


Alabama receivers have 15.5 yards per catch this season, and that number hasn't dropped much with the loss of Jaylen Waddle (ankle). DeVonta Smith (903 yards, 10 TDs) is nearing another 1,000-yard season, and he opens up the big play for John Metchie. Auburn receivers average 11.9 yards per catch. Seth Williams, Anthony Schwartz and Eli Stove have had their moments, but all three need to make big plays in the passing to balance that number out between the teams.


Auburn scores first. The Tigers use a few tendency-breaking trick plays early, and Williams breaks free for a big game. Keep in mind that both teams have allowed just 24 points in the first quarter this season. Alabama loosens up in the second quarter, and offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian sticks with a simple game plan. Jones, Harris and Smith combine for enough big plays to break the game open in the second half, and the Crimson Tide improves to 8-0.

Final score

Alabama 43, Auburn 21
