Streaky Auburn (10-8 in the SEC) got by Iowa in the last game, 83-75, but that was against a weak defense. The tables completely turn in this one against a ferocious Houston defense. Auburn is on a 4-7 SU, 5-5-1 ATS run. They've lost their last six as an underdog, including an 86-54 loss to Kentucky and to Alabama surrendering 90 points. Auburn has dropped 10 of 17 non-home games this season and coach Bruce Pearl is 41-53 ATS away from home after playing a game as a favorite. No. 1 seeded Houston is the second-best defensive team in the country allowing 56.4 points per game. Houston is 58-41 ATS as chalk, 21-10 ATS in non-conference tilts, and 19-9 ATS after a game where they failed to cover. Play Houston.
