Vanderbilt-Auburn Series Prediction

Vandy limps into Auburn, coming off two straight series losses while Auburn has won two series in a row. This is dangerous territory for Vandy. If the Commodores can’t shake off the baseball blues they might find themselves in a deep hole early in the SEC conference race.

Auburn 2 wins, Vanderbilt 1 win
