What to Know
The #9 Auburn Tigers and the Florida Gators will face off in an SEC clash at 8 p.m. ET Jan. 8 at Auburn Arena. The Tigers are out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.
Auburn didn’t have too much trouble with the South Carolina Gamecocks on the road last week as they won 81-66. Four players on Auburn scored in the double digits: guard Wendell Green Jr. (22), guard Zep Jasper (13), forward Walker Kessler (12), and forward Jabari Smith (10). Walker Kessler has also now had at least four blocks in his past five games.
Meanwhile, Florida received a tough blow this past Wednesday as they fell 83-70 to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Guard Myreon Jones wasn’t much of a difference maker for Florida; Jones played for 34 minutes with and four turnovers.
Auburn is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (10-3), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The Tigers are now 13-1 while the Gators sit at 9-4. Auburn is 11-1 after wins this year, and Florida is 2-1 after losses.
