Auburn Tigers vs. Wisconsin Badgers – Against the Spread Pick

By; JBG

BETTING LINE: Auburn -7 Over/Under 63.5

Last Game: Wisconsin was embarrassed getting crushed by Ohio State 59-0 in the Big 10 title game and Auburn has a solid game on offense, but not defense in their 55-44 loss to Alabama.

ATS PICK: AUBURN -7

Auburn did not end the season well losing 3 of their last 4 games, but they are still the ESPN Pick in this bowl game favored by 7 points. Still, are they the pick to cover the spread? Yes they are. They played in the tougher SEC and Wisconsin is coming off a terrible loss in their last game. The Fox Sports Pick for Auburn vs. Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl has to be Auburn to win and cover the 7-point spread.

Neither of these teams were solid bets as of late, especially Auburn, who have failed to cover the spread in their last 4 games. However, facing Alabama’s 3rd ranked defense in the season finale they did score 44 points.

While Auburn has covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 bowl games Wisconsin has failed to cover in 5 of their last 7 bowl games. On top of that the Badgers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games held at a neutral site.

The Tigers’ offense was solid in the Alabama win, obviously their D was not, and they have covered the spread in 9 of their last 11 games when they scored more than 40 points in their previous game. They have also been a solid betting team after poor defensive performances, as in their last 15 games after giving up at least 40 points in their previous game they have covered the spread 11 times.

Wisconsin is only 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.

The Badgers have a run defense that ranks a legit 16th in the nation, but in the Ohio State game they gave up over 300 rushing yards. Auburn RB Cameron Artis-Payne and duel threat QB Nick Marshall combine to rush for 2,262 yards on the season.

The Badgers have to run the ball to win, as they only rank 118th in the nation in passing yards per game. Melvin Gordon was their big gun on offense and while rushing for over 2,300 this season he struggled in the Ohio State game. Auburn’s run defense was not solid in the Alabama game, but in their last 8 games after giving up at least 200 rushing yards in the previous game they have covered the spread 6 times.

CBS Sports Picks has Auburn as the favorite and since they played a tougher schedule they are also the team that will cover the betting spread in this Outback Bowl.
