Auburn Has Been an Awful Spread Play

Auburn NCAA Football

Auburn had playoff aspirations to start the season, but instead they faltered to a 6-6 record and a trip to the Birmingham Bowl against the surprise powerhouse that is Memphis. The Tigers have been a pit for money, as they are a horrible 2-14-1 ATS in their last 17 games.

Shark Bites
  • Memphis is 1-7 ATS in their past eight games against the SEC.
  • Auburn is 6-0 SU in their last six games in December.
  • Paxton Lynch is coming off a performance where he threw for seven touchdowns in nine completions.

Auburn’s offense was a complete mess this season with quarterbacks combining for 10 passing touchdowns and nine interceptions. The only consistent threat offensively has been Peyton Barber, who has used his bruising frame to tally 13 touchdowns this season.

Paxton Lynch has arguably been the best quarterback in the nation this season, and already has pundits talking about how well he could look in a Cleveland Browns jersey. Lynch has completed 69 percent of his passes while tossing 28 touchdowns and only three interceptions.
