Purdue vs. Auburn
– Will Auburn actually show up for this bowl? It has lost four of its last five with total whiffs in the last two seasons against Oklahoma in the 2017 Sugar and UCF in the 2018 Peach. This Auburn team isn’t good enough to not try.
– Read the room. Minnesota rocked Georgia Tech’s world in the Quick Lane, and Miami destroyed Miami in the Pinstripe. Maybe the Big Ten is just that good, and maybe Purdue is about to bring something under head coach Jeff Brohm that Auburn won’t, can’t, and hasn’t been able to all year. It might just be worth exploring the the Boilermakers catching a +145 on the Money Line.
– The Auburn defense should be just strong enough pull this off, and it’s a big plus that the line went down to Tigers -3.5. If you like Auburn, you’re loving the line – this isn’t going to be a three point game no matter which way this goes.
– Other than the loss to Tennessee, there weren’t any cheap losses for Auburn. Here’s your concern on the point total – none of the six wins over FBS teams were shootouts. None of them hit 55 points – the total in this game. Only one of Purdue’s six losses got to 55.
– Like the over anyway. There’s just enough offense on each side to limp to the total, but it’ll be a grind to get there – if it happens.
– Again, you’re fine either way with what you like – the spread on this doesn’t really matter. Auburn should pull this off, but that’s about as mild an endorsement as it gets.
