Alabama-Auburn Series Prediction

Alabama has won seven of the last nine series, including three of the last four at Auburn. After trading series sweeps on the other’s home field in 2018 & 2019, the home team has held serve each of the last two seasons. Alabama has won 17 of the last 29 series since 1992 and owns a 49-38 lead in regular-season SEC games played. Four of the last nine series have resulted in sweeps, three for Alabama (2012, ’15, ’17) and one for Auburn (2018).

Alabama has scuffled to a 2-9 mark over its last 11 games after starting 8-5. The Crimson Tide have dropped their last four series and lost five consecutive SEC road games since winning five in a row over Mississippi State (1), Ole Miss (3) and Tennessee (1). Alabama, which has four SEC road series victories over the last five seasons, is seeking to win two conference road series in a season for the first time since 2016.

Auburn has posted a 6-4 record since starting SEC play 7-7. The Tigers have dropped their last two series overall and seek to win their third home series for the fourth time in the last five seasons. They sit above .500 in the SEC standings for the fourth time in the last five seasons. Auburn needs two more conference wins to secure its fourth non-losing SEC record in the last 18 seasons and first since 2018. (Source: SEC)

Rivals Alabama and Auburn meet in Auburn. The Tide has a small advantage in pitching while Auburn has a slight edge in batting. This should be an exciting series to watch. These two are about even so you go with the home team in that case.

Auburn 2 wins, Alabama 1 win
