SEC Week 2 Predictions

Last week I was 6-7 when picking the spread and 11-2 when picking the winners, failing to correctly pick Clemson and Western Kentucky. This week should be a little clearer, I hope.


11:00 a.m. CT

Miami (OH) 10 at Kentucky 24

Line: UK -13.5

Both teams are coming off pretty embarrassing defeats, but UK has more talent and plays at home, Go Blue.

11:00 a.m.

Florida 20 at Miami (FL) 23

Line: UF -2

The Hurricanes impressed me more in Week 1 and this just seems like their time. I can’t trust the Gator offense a lick.


11:21 a.m.

Western Kentucky 27 at Tennessee 31

Line: UT -13.5

UT looked good last week but they were still only playing Austin Peay. I think they get a scare here from the Hilltoppers.


2:30 p.m.

Toledo 17 at Missouri 42

Line: UM -10

The Tigers didn’t play great competition last week but they still looked very fluid on offense and James Franklin should play huge.


2:30 p.m.

Alcorn State 3 at Mississippi State 35

Line: MSU -42.5

Dan Mullen’s teams always beat up on their FCS opponents before they play real teams and this should be no different.


3:30 p.m.

South Carolina 28 at Georgia 27

Line: UGA -6

Aaron Murray needs to beat USC like Peyton Manning needed to beat Florida. Unfortunately for Murray I think history repeats itself and he goes 0-4.


6:00 p.m.

Samford 10 at Arkansas 41

Line: Arkansas -32.5

The new system looked good last weekend and expect the Pigs to jump to 2-0 in the new era.

6:00 p.m.

UAB 0 at LSU 34

Line: LSU -33.5

UAB is just overmatched here and I don’t see a dropoff from the TCU game.


6:00 p.m.

Southeast Missouri State 7 at Ole Miss 52

Line: UM -49

This one won’t be close, but 49 is a massive line.


6:00 p.m.

Sam Houston State 17 at Texas A&M 63

Line: TAM -45

Love him or hate him (and you probably hate him), Johnny Football can play and you can bet he won’t let up against Sam Houston.


6:30 p.m.

Arkansas State 20 at Auburn 35

Line: AU -6

This line is just disturbing if you’re a Tiger fan.


6:30 p.m.

Austin Peay 3 at Vanderbilt 49

Line: VU -46.5

The Commodores will rebound, no doubt about that. You’ll just have to feel sorry for the Generals as it is a rough stretch against the big boys.
