Revenge will be on the minds of the Auburn Tigers and their fans Wednesday night. On January 15 Alabama ran Auburn off the court in an 83-64 win as 1.5-point home dogs. That is one of the few blemishes in what has been a strong College Basketball betting season by the Tigers. Head coach Bruce Pearl’s team can dictate offensive, a pace like few others. However, their defensive inconsistency remains a problem. Alabama has an even better offense than War Eagle. But the Crimson Tide defense is among the nation’s worst. Still, coach Nate Oats has jumpstarted improvement.
