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

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.
