Another week of SEC football is in the books, and for just the second time in ten weeks, our Saturday Selections failed to earn a winning record. However, we’ve still never dropped farter than one game below .500 in any week and stand at a 59.5% win rate so far this season.

Based on their performance against non-conference opponents this season (and in the Kevin Sumlin era), Texas A&M seemed like a good bet to cover against lowly ULM. Instead, the Aggies struggled to win 21-16 behind first time QB Kyle Allen. Florida not only covered, but pulled the outright upset in a 38-20 victory over Georgia, which pulled our early record to 1-1.

However, we were on the wrong end of Missouri’s 20-10 win over the Kentucky Wildcats, Vanderbilt’s 42-28 victory over Old Dominion and Tennessee’s 45-42 overtime upset win against South Carolina. Arkansas’ close loss to Mississippi State and Auburn’s win over Ole Miss limited the damage and pulled our weekly gambling picks to 3-4.

Last Week ATS: 3-4

This Season ATS: 44-28-2 (59.5%)

Looking ahead, Ole Miss hosts Presbyterian and Mississippi State has a Homecoming date with UT-Martin, both of which are FCS opponents, so we will not pick those games. Mizzou, Arkansas, Tennessee and South Carolina are all off.

Among the games will will pick, Georgia travels to Lexington as both the Bulldogs and Wildcats aim to get back in the win column following disappointing losses. On the other hand, Florida and Vanderbilt both carry come momentum into their SEC East clash in Nashville while LSU and Alabama meet in a marquee matchup in Baton Rouge.

But how will they fare against the spread? As always, spreads are provided by Bovada and the rankings listed come from the College Football Playoff committee.
