I was one point off in my Louisville-Kentucky prediction, picking Louisville 27-14 and the final score saw the Wildcats score a point less. It really is the little things. Anyway, last week against the spread I was 4-3-1 (Alabama was a seven point favorite). That brings my season mark to 18-14-1. Picking the winners I was a little better at 8-0 and now 30-3 on the year.

Vanderbilt 45 at UMASS 10
UMASS is awful and Vandy is coming off a loss that sticks in their craw. Still, 36 is a big line on the road.
North Texas 7 at Georgia 49
The Dawgs have a huge game next week but I don’t see them letting up against the Mean Green.
Tennessee 14 at Florida 19
Jeff Driskel is bad, his defense his good. I don’t see a blowout here simply because of that offense.
Arkansas 31 at Rutgers 20
SEC vs. AAC. Do the math.
SMU 27 at Texas A&M 56
Manziel looks better than last year and if that defense can hold up, they could be Sugar Bowl bound. A big if.
Colorado State 3 at Alabama 35
Nick Saban can embarrass his old offensive coordinator, but he won’t.
Troy 24 at Mississippi State 27
As long as Dan Mullen continues to convince his fanbase that their three-star recruits are underrated and that a close win over a Sun Belt team is still a win, he’ll stay in Starkvegas as long as he likes.
Auburn 30 at LSU 38
Probably a little higher score than most have but a Cam Cameron vs. Gus Malzahn matchup is not for the faint of heart.
Missouri 45 at Indiana 13
If Missouri falls to a below-average Big 10 team it will be an embarrassment for the whole league. I can’t see that though. M-I-Z.
