Auburn has 36% chance to beat Alabama on Wednesday

Alabama welcomes bitter rival, No. 6 Auburn, to Tuscaloosa on Wednesday in hopes of cooling off the red-hot Tigers.

Can the Crimson Tide snap the Tigers’ long winning streak? ESPN analytics favors Alabama to get the job done. Ahead of Wednesday’s matchup at Coleman Coliseum, ESPN’s matchup predictor forecasts Alabama to grab the victory by giving the Nate Oats’ squad a 63.6% chance to defeat Auburn.

Auburn has had the luxury of winning every category during its 11-game win streak. However, Wednesday’s game will provide a test as Alabama beats Auburn in several categories: points per game, field goal percentage, and rebounds. At the same time, Auburn holds advantages in points allowed per game, assists per game, and blocks per game.

Individually, Mark Sears leads the Tide in points scored with 19.8 per game and Grant Nelson is Alabama’s leading rebounder with 5.8 per game. Auburn’s Johni Broome is the team leader in points scored and rebounds per game with 15.3 and 8.4 respectively.

Auburn looks to continue its hot streak on Wednesday at Alabama. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT.
