Auburn -3½ -110 over Purdue
1:30 PM EST. Some books have the Tigers at -3½ and spotting a little extra vig so we’re going to “sell a half point” and take the Tigers up to -4 while lowering the vig in the process.
Gus Malzahn has vowed to fix Auburn's offense, and his first move was to retake the reins as play-caller, starting with the Music City Bowl. There is a lot of urgency about this game coming from the Auburn coaching staff and the players can feel the difference in this year's demanding bowl practices. Purdue is short-handed along the defensive line, and this is a defense against which the struggling Tigers can finally make some hay on the ground. Auburn also has a big speed advantage on the outside, and the Purdue secondary will have a tough time covering this wideout group, especially in the one-on-one situations created by play-action if the Tigers get their running game cranked up.
The Boilers counter with an elite play-caller in head coach Jeff Brohm, an excellent quarterback in Blough and a superstar wideout in Moore but we don’t care. The Tigers have a good-sized edge on all three layers of defense and had this game been earlier in the year, Auburn would have been a double-digit favorite. We understand that things change over the course of the season but no matter how you break it down, the Tigers are underpriced based on results and not the ingredients. That provides us with this opportunity.
