Hogs open as a 9 point...

underdog at Auburn. That seems like an awfully big number. If I was a gambling man, I might take that.

Alabama is a 16.5 favorite at home against #6 Texas A&M. Big number in such a big game but Bama is so good it seems about right.

That surprises me. I can see AU as a slight betting favorite, but I’d have predicted something like 3-5 points. Oh well, OM was somewhere like a 7.5 favorite yesterday. We beat the spread (in several ways.)
