Las Vegas casino posts opening line for 2018 Iron Bowl

The 2018 Iron Bowl has an opening point spread of a touchdown at a Las Vegas casino sportsbook.

The South Point casino has Alabama as a seven-point favorite over Auburn for this year's meeting of the rivalry, which will be Nov. 24 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The Iron Bowl was among 79 college football games the casino released early odds for on Thursday.

There is a $1,000 betting limit on each of the games listed by South Point casino, which lists Auburn as a two-point favorite over Washington in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Alabama as a 25-point favorite over Louisville in the Camping World Kickoff in Orlando on Sept. 1.

Last year, South Point's early Iron Bowl line had Alabama favored by 3.5 points, which proved way off as Auburn won 26-14.

Alabama has won the last three Iron Bowls at Bryant-Denny Stadium, beating Auburn 30-12 at Bryant-Denny Stadium in 2016, 55-44 in 2014 and 49-0 in 2012.
