In the game of the night on the Tuesday college hoops slate, No. 4 Auburn travels to face No. 24 Alabama.

Bruce Pearl's club has won 11 straight to climb inside the top five, but now face a stiff test in the dynamic Crimson Tide, who are coming off of a shocking loss to Missouri over the weekend.

Can Bama score another massive victory after knocking off Gonzaga earlier this year, or will Auburn continue to look untouchable in SEC play?

Here are the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Auburn vs. Alabama Prediction and Pick

This spot screams to bet the Crimson Tide at home, but this spread has shifted too far in their direction to play it.

This will be a matchup of two physically imposing teams, with War Eagle top 10 in defending the interior where the Crimson Tide shoot at a top 10 clip in the nation on twos. Not to mention, the likes of K.D. Johnson can turn over an Alabama offense that is outside the top 100 in protecting the ball this season.

While there are concerns for the Crimson Tide, there is no denying that they are a borderline elite team that will be hungry to knock off their surging rivals, especially coming off of a loss over the weekend as double digit favorites.

Alabama's an elite offensive rebounding team, grabbing more than 35% of available second chances and post an effective field goal percentage of 54%, which is inside the top 50 nationally. Overall, I believe that the Crimson Tide's superior outside shooting will show on Tuesday night.

Auburn is a legitimate National Championship contender, but this spot points towards taking the Crimson Tide. I will be laying off this game pre-flop and looking to bet Alabama live or if the market returns to -2.

LEAN: Alabama -3, wait for market to reach -2 or play live ML at -120
