Iron Bowl 2013: Alabama opens as 10-point favorite over Auburn

College football is gearing up for another exciting weekend of action after the crazy slate of games from Week 13, but the highlight of the schedule is undoubtedly the Iron Bowl clash between SEC rivals Alabama and Auburn.

The game has serious BCS implications with both teams currently sitting in the top ten, so it is more important than ever for each side to come away with the win.

With the game now less than one week away, Vegas has adjusted the betting odds for the game and Alabama will open as a ten-point favorite. It will be the 53rd straight game that the Crimson Tide have come in as the favorites, but it is the lowest spread since the two teams met back in 2010. Auburn was able to come away from that meeting with the win.

The spread is the first time this season that Alabama was not favored for their upcoming game by at least two touchdowns.

Who do you think will come away with the win? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts and predictions.
