Auburn basketball game tonight: Tigers vs. Louisiana-Monroe Line, Predictions, Odds, TV Channel and Live Stream

Auburn basketball delivered in every conceivable way on opening night against the Morehead State Eagles this past Tuesday.

Bruce Pearl’s squad got off to a hot start and maintained a game-long lead en route to winning 77-54 and covering a -16 point spread in the process.

Now, they look to win by a similar margin against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks of the Sunbelt ahead of a several-week road trip that includes a trip to Tampa before heading to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving.

Let’s take a look at the Auburn basketball betting lines, odds, and TV information while laying a few predictions on the line (all lines courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook):

Louisiana-Monroe vs. Auburn basketball Odds, Spread and Total

Spread:

Auburn: -25 (-105)
Morehead State: +25 (-115)

Total:

141.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Louisana-Monroe vs. Auburn Pick and Prediction

Well, when a spread is this large, it’s for a reason. The Warhawks come into this game having lost by 62 points to LSU this past Tuesday in a beating that gave no inkling that ULM could hang with Auburn in any way.

They were outrebounded 47-26 to a Bayou Tigers frontline that is nowhere near as physically imposing as its Plains Tigers counterpart. Walker Kessler and Jabari Smith should feast on a frontline that features one player over six-foot-eight.

Louisiana-Monroe also turned the ball over a whopping 25 times. Wendell Green Jr., Devan Cambridge, and K.D. Johnson are likely to create havoc all night long in the passing lanes and with physical on-ball defense.

After the Tigers were able to dismantle a Morehead State team coming off of an impressive Ohio Valley Conference tournament win and March Madness appearance, laying 25 points on Auburn against a team that has won just 16 of its last 56 games and looked hopeless against an inferior SEC team never seemed like such a simple hammer.

The Auburn Arena should be rocking with secondary market prices for tickets to this game in the $100s with a big home football game Saturday morning. Don’t overthink this one.

Pick: Auburn -25 (-105)
