Auburn vs Houston Preview & Picks

Auburn are tipped to cover as a betting underdog.

Houston are winning, but they are not playing good basketball and are without their leading scorer.

  • Houston are 2-8-0 ATS over their last 10 games
  • Auburn are 3-1-0 ATS in their last 4 games
  • The Under has cashed in 4 of Houston’s last 6 games

Head To Head

  • Houston lead the all-time series 6-1
  • Houston won 77-65 when the teams last met in December 1982

Auburn Form

Auburn are in the second round of March Madness despite a rough run of form over the past couple of months.

The Tigers lost eight of their last 12 regular season games, but did wrap up with a 79-70 win against #12 Tennessee.

They failed to follow that up in the SEC Championship tournament though, falling at the very first hurdle.

Auburn dropped a close one, 76-73, to Arkansas, but put that behind them in the opening round of the national tournament.

The Tigers knocked off #8 Iowa 83-75 to set up this second-round meeting with the Cougars.

Houston Form

Houston have not been playing their best recently, but they have now won 14 of their last 15 games.

The Cougars responded to a 56-55 defeat to Temple back in January 22 with an 11-game win streak to close out the regular season.

That good run of results continued in the AAC Championship tournament as they opened with a 60-46 victory over East Carolina.

Houston then made straightforward work of Cincinnati, 69-48, to book their place in the final against Memphis.

The Cougars came up short though, suffering a 75-65 defeat to a Tigers team they beat twice during the final few weeks of the regular season.
