Auburn +5.5 vs Houston
2 units (710pm ET Sat)
Essentially a home game for Auburn and no surprise Marcus Sasser got hurt again Thursday and a groin injury will keep being an issue and limit you if you play on it with 1-2 days rest. Houston was down 20 last week to Memphis without Sasser and then Houston shot 4 for 16 from three vs Northern Kentucky and only scored 63. Auburn just held Iowa to 7 for 27 from three and Auburn’s defense has been good all year they defend the three well and they have the size to compete with Houston’s bigs. In the last few weeks Auburn has an overtime loss at Alabama and a 9 point win at home vs Tennessee. Shead isn’t 100% either he’s 3 for 13 from three with 9 turnovers the last 2 games and the gameplan from Bruce Pearl should setup a lower scoring game where every point is valuable and they’ll have a loud home crowd behind them on defense.
