On The Field

Auburn is going through a bit of a transition period at the current moment. Bryan Harsin is the new head football coach and is a bit of an unproven commodity. It’s clear it was time to advance past the stone age offense of Gus Malzahn but it’s way too soon to know how Harsin will fare in a tough SEC environment. Harsin has an impressive coaching background at Boise State, but winning at Auburn might prove to be a different animal.

Auburn is off to a 2-0 start to the season with a matchup against Penn State looming on the schedule. Investors should be hoping for an improvement from Bo Nix or the upside to Auburn will once again be limited. Nix probably isn’t an NFL elite level franchise quarterback, but can he become a capable collegiate starter? That’s the question.

The positives are there are two very good known assets on the Auburn football team. The secondary and running back positions are two areas of strength for the Tigers. I mean c’mon… how do you not want to invest in Smoke Monday? Roger McCreary along with Monday gives Auburn two veteran defensive backs to lean on.

Cartavious (AKA Tank) Bigsby is arguably the best running back in the country. Bigsby is quite literally a tank. A quick one at that. The former four-star recruit out of Georgia is a perfect combination of speed and power. This dude is just flat-out talented. As a true freshman, Bigsby averaged six yards a carry. In 2021, that number is up to a ridiculous 10 yards per carry. Auburn has itself a star.

Oh, and Tank’s back up, Shaun Shivers isn’t too shabby himself.

In The Market:

Auburn is currently priced on the SimBull market at $37.51. They’re about $4 more than Arkansas (who Jackson Law previously broke down). Auburn, on the surface, feels like a really good team to invest in. Look, they’re not Alabama. However, ask any Bama fan – Does any team make the Tide more nervous than Auburn at the end of every year? War Eagle has played spoilers on plenty of occasions.

The SEC is tough but Auburn always recruits well. The new head coach is a bit of a wild card but it’s hard to imagine they will ever turn into a dumpster fire at the bottom of the conference. They land too many good players each recruiting window for that to happen. Go invest in Auburn.
