Thomas accepted the offer, with confidence that his top-ranked Crimson Tide will handle No. 22 Auburn at home.

Alabama is heavily favored in this matchup, so it’s no surprise Thomas sees this as easy money.
Barkley is always notoriously confident in his Auburn Tigers, so we will see who is buying dinner for who after Saturday’s game.
