The Auburn Tigers have defeated the Kentucky Wildcats in 17 of their last 18 meetings, and it certainly looks like the oddsmakers believe that pattern of dominance is going to continue this year too.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented scheduling changes and cancellations, the odds and spreads for this week's upcoming slate of SEC season openers are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Sitting less than one week away from the 34th all-time meeting between these two programs, Auburn has already opened as a rather light 7.5-point favorite to beat Kentucky at home in Auburn this weekend, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Tigers have dominated this series of late, winning two of the last three and 17 of the last 18 meetings with the Wildcats. However, it should be noted that Kentucky's most recent victory over the Tigers did come on the road in Auburn back in 2009, and each of Auburn's last two wins since that have come by just three points.

There's still plenty of time for the odds to shift between now and this Week 4 SEC kickoff, but the Tigers remain steady favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes we may see, Auburn is currently set to host Kentucky at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 12 p.m. EST on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020.
