SEC Week 5 Predictions

A 5-3-1 mark against the spread leads me to a 23-17-2 clip, the best winning percentage on the year. I was also 8-1 picking the winners and now 38-4 on the year. Damn you Arkansas.

11:00 a.m. CT

South Carolina 24 at UCF 13

USC -7.5

The O’Leary vs. Spurrier aspect is the most intriguing, but it will also be nice for Jadeveon Clowney to get used to the area when he’s drafted by the Jaguars just up the road.

 

11:21 a.m.

South Alabama 10 at Tennessee 31

UT -19

Rocky Top is just that at the moment, rocky. Things will turn around when they face another mediocre opponent.

 

2:30 p.m.

LSU 30 at Georgia 20

UGA -3

Georgia has a better offense, but their defense is still inexperienced and LSU offensive coordinator should expose that. It is cliche by now, but I still don’t trust Aaron Murray in big games, especially with the Dawgs’ record with Gameday in town.

5:30 p.m.

Ole Miss 31 at Alabama 28

ALA -16.5

Ole Miss is historically bad against the Crimson Tide, who also happen to be the team of the half-decade. This could be the year though with Alabama’s secondary down and the Rebel confidence at a high that hasn’t been seen since the Vaught years. Key words: could be.

 

6:00 p.m.

Texas A&M 41 at Arkansas 30

TAM -3

Johnny Football should have a field day against a defense that screwed the pooch against Rutgers. A&M’s defense is nothing to write home about either.

 

6:00 p.m.

Florida 24 at Kentucky 6

UF -14

There is any number of things you could watch in leu of this barnburner.

6:30 p.m.

Arkansas State 17 at Missouri 38

MIZ -21

Missouri should make a bowl game with a weak out-of-conference schedule and opportunities against a way down East.

 

6:30 p.m.

UAB 6 at Vanderbilt 35

VU -20

I know it doesn’t say much, but Vanderbilt is the most talented 2-2 team in the country.
