Titles or not, there will be plenty on the line Saturday when the eighth-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide host the Auburn Tigers in the 2022 Iron Bowl. Alabama (9-2, 5-2) won't be going to the SEC title game and would need a miracle to make the College Football Playoff, but getting a 10th victory at the expense of their arch rivals would still be sweet. The Tigers (5-6, 2-5) need the victory to assure bowl eligibility, and they have won two straight behind interim coach Cadillac Williams.
Kickoff at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala. is set for 3:30 p.m. ET. The Crimson Tide are 22-point favorites in the latest Auburn vs. Alabama odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is 50.

The model knows the Tide remain one of the nation's best teams on both sides of the ball. Heisman-winning quarterback Bryce Young leads an offense that averages 40 points per game, sixth-best in FBS. The defense also is in the top 20 in allowing 17.2 points per contest, while the Tigers score less than 25 and yield almost 28, both outside the top 85. The Tide are minus-4 in turnover margin, but Auburn is minus-9, which ranks 120th in the nation, and the Tigers average just 181 passing yards per game (115th).
The model also has considered that the Tigers can run the ball with the best of them. They average almost 196 yards per game on the ground, 30th in the nation, with Tank Bigsby (907 yards) and quarterback Robby Ashford (589) leading the rushing attack. Running back Jarquez Hunter has 750 total yards and nine TDs, and he even threw a touchdown pass in last week's 41-17 victory against Western Kentucky. Derick Hall has 6.5 of the defense's 28 sacks, and the unit has 12 takeaways and scored a TD last week.
