    I don't understand either line. If Cam plays, Auburn should be the favorite. I guess folks are so impressed with Saban defensive genius, they can't believe his team can be beat by a superior player, or they think Saban can scheme to hold down 1 elite player. If Cam plays, I'd take Auburn.

    Us vs. Arky, if Mallet gets hot, they could win. But if JJ plays a complete game, and Ridley and Ford come through, and DeAngelo Peterson or Clement, I'd go with the Tigers. Who knows, JL may get hot for us.

    They're saying both games are toss ups and giving the home team a field goal. I think thats about right. I expect both home teams to lose close games. Of course we won't score the winning points until 1/2 second after my voice goes away.

    It will help us in the polls to play as the underdog and win. That's fine with me!

    I understand us and Ark, but the Bama/AU line is almost like Vegas may know something, or is trying to bait the betting public.

    Mallett is going to throw at Peterson, there is no 2 ways about it. PP7, Mo, Tyrannasarous 14, Reid, Loston, are all going to be busy. We need big games out of those guys.

    They've got a big back, Knile Davis, that's given them a lot of balance here lately. He gashed a pretty good run defense of Moo U for 170+ yards and that was before they went to OT. Ark is going to be a tough out. Our best chance to win is to play ball control offense to keep them off the field. Easier said than done though. Nevis also needs to have a huge game.

    Peterson looks like he can be beat on slants to the inside. I'm sure Ark has noticed.
