Auburn vs. Alabama: Iron Bowl 75

The Auburn vs. Alabama Iron Bowl 75 spread opened at Tigers -4.5 with around 65 percent of the backing from gamblers.  This game goes off Friday at 2:35 pm EST.

Number 2 Auburn is currently 11-0 and fighting for a chance to play in the BCS National Championship.  Alabama, at 9-2 and ranked number 9, still has slim hopes. 

The two in-state rivals haven't both entered the Iron Bowl ranked in the Top 10 since 1994, when no. 4 Alabama beat No. 6 Auburn 24-14.

"Of course it goes up a notch," Tide quarterback Greg McElroy said. "There's more riding on the game for both teams. I think everyone cares an awful lot about the outcome considering the impact it could have not only on the national scene but also in the Southeastern Conference.

"We're very thrilled and excited to have the opportunity to play Auburn with them having the success that they've had."

Some early betting trends for the Auburn vs. Alabama Iron Bowl 75 game had Auburn 6-1 Against The Spread vs. Conference opponents so far this season while Alabama was 5-1 ATS as the home favorite.

The total in this game was listed at 58 at Bookmaker.com.  The OVER has gone 4-14 for Alabama since 1992 in home games.
