Vegas makes Auburn an underdog in 2011

The defending national champions have some work to do to win over the Vegas wise guys this offseason.

The Golden Nugget in Las Vegas is out with some early betting lines and they are not especially favoring Auburn. Actually, not at all.

Auburn is an underdog in all eight games listed, five of them by 9 points or more. 

The Tigers beat the naysayers and rewarded the faithful last season, going 9-3-1 against the line, and 14-0 in real life on the way to the BCS national championship. They now have the rings to prove it. Vegas will point out they don't have Cam Newton this time around.

(To save you the trouble of looking it up, Alabama is favored by the Golden Nugget in all seven games in which the Crimson Tide is listed.)

Here are the Vegas lines, as first tweeted by Andrew Gribble of the Knoxville News Sentinel. Here, we present Auburn versus...

Mississippi State a 1-point favorite
Clemson a 5-point favorite
South Carolina a 9-point favorite 
Arkansas a 9-point favorite
Florida a 3-point favorite
LSU 11-point favorite
Georgia a 9-point favorite
Alabama a 12-point favorite
