ESPN takes closer look at Tide and Tigers expectations in 2017

Las Vegas odds-makers set Alabama's "over/under" at 10-and-a-half wins, and set Auburn's total at eight wins (

ESPN's Edward Aschoff and Sam Khan are mixed on the "high bar" Alabama football carries into 2017.

Last week, Las Vegas odds-makers set the Tide's "over-under" win total at 10-and-a-half. Aschoff, a college football writer covering the SEC, predicts Alabama will fall short of the number. Aschoff says the Tide will be good but not good enough to win11 regular season games.

Khan disagrees and predicts Alabama to get to the 11 win mark.

Las Vegas odds-makers set Auburn's "over-under" total at eight wins, which both Aschoff and Khan believe the Tigers will exceed the number.
