SEC Week 4 Predictions


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.

11:00 a.m. CT

Vanderbilt 45 at UMASS 10

VAN -36

UMASS is awful and Vandy is coming off a loss that sticks in their craw. Still, 36 is a big line on the road.

11:21 a.m.

North Texas 7 at Georgia 49

UGA -36.5

The Dawgs have a huge game next week but I don’t see them letting up against the Mean Green.

2:30 p.m.

Tennessee 14 at Florida 19

UF -15.5

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.

6:00 p.m.

SMU 27 at Texas A&M 56

TAM -26.5

Manziel looks better than last year and if that defense can hold up, they could be Sugar Bowl bound. A big if.

6:00 p.m.

Colorado State 3 at Alabama 35

ALA -36.5

Nick Saban can embarrass his old offensive coordinator, but he won’t.

6:30 p.m.

Troy 24 at Mississippi State 27

MSU -13

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.

6:45 p.m.

Auburn 30 at LSU 38

LSU -14

Probably a little higher score than most have but a Cam Cameron vs. Gus Malzahn matchup is not for the faint of heart.

7:00 p.m.

Missouri 45 at Indiana 13

MO -5.5

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.
