SEC Week 3 Predictions


In Week 2 I successfully predicted the upset of Miami over Florida and finished 11-1 on the straight-up picks. That improves the season’s straight-up record to 22-3. The bets on the lines were again not great at 8-4, but the season record is a little better at 14-11. This week gets a little more interesting with out-of-conference games against Louisville, Oregon and Texas, and the Alabama-Texas A&M rematch.

 

11:00 a.m. CT

Louisville 27 at Kentucky 14

UL -7.5

Louisville, is good, not great. Kentucky is awful, not just bad. You never know with rivalry games though.

Southern Miss 10 at Arkansas 35

ARK -19

USM hasn’t won a game since 2011 and have been outscored by 50 points this season.

 

2:30 p.m.

Alabama 41 at Texas A&M 28

UA -7

It is always Kirby Smart’s defense that makes waves, but expect the Tide’s offense to take it to the atrocious Aggie defense.

 

2:30 p.m.

Tennessee 27 at Oregon 45

ORE -20

Tennessee has outscore opponents 97-20. The Ducks have outscored opponents 125-0. Something’s got to give and it appears to be the lightning-quick Ducks.

Mississippi State 17 at Auburn 31

AUB -7

Don’t mistake this 3-0 Tiger start for a drastically improved team. It is strictly circumstantial for now.

 

6:00 p.m.

Kent State 3 at LSU 42

LSU -38

Looking ahead to Georgia? Distracted by the Les Miles Oklahoma State controversies? Nah, LSU blows the Golden Flashes out of the bayou.

6:00 p.m.

Vanderbilt 24 at South Carolina 28

USC -11

Vandy is another one of those teams who could be vastly improved in 2013 with a record that does not reflect it.

 

7:00 p.m.

Ole Miss 41 at Texas 28

UT -3.5

Longhorn turmoil, Ole Miss success, it typically spells ironic disaster for the Rebels. 2013 seems different though, seems different.
