Alabama opens a big favorite over Auburn

Update 9:58 a.m., Monday: A consensus is forming now that nearly everyone has checked in with point-spreads on the Iron Bowl.

The 21-point number is pretty standard with Danny Sheridan, the Vegas casinos, and the off-shore sports books.

Update 10:59 p.m.: Alabama is up to a 21-point favorite according to three different sports books.

The first sports book offered a line in Saturday’s Iron Bowl this afternoon. Apparently Las Vegas really likes the Tide in this one.

The Wynn opening line says Alabama is a 19 1/2-point favorite to beat Auburn on the road. Click here for the home these figures on VegasInsider.com

Keep in mind this is the first of many sports books who’ll offer point-spreads on this game and they tend to fluctuate based on betting habits.

Any thoughts on this number? Too high? Too low? Leave a comment below.
