Let’s look at the spreads for this week for each SEC football game.
Alabama started the week out as a 16 point favorite against Texas A&M Aggies. Probably the most surprising team in the SEC this year would be the new member folks from College Station. Led by their coach Kevin Sumlin and quarterback Johnny Football, these guys are not just hanging in the SEC West, they’re winning. With Bama coming off an emotional win in Baton Rouge, the potential for a let down is real. Saban will be happy just to escape with a win this week. It seems the public agrees, and the line has decreased to 13.5 as of writing this.
Georgia just needs to beat Auburn to win the SEC East. They’ll likely do it, but I don’t think the public is convinced it’ll be a blow out. Starting out as a 16 point favorite, this line has decreased to 14.5. The game is at Auburn, and you know the Tigers would love to ruin Georgia’s season.
Miss State takes on LSU in Baton Rouge. LSU started off as a 17 point favorite and that line is down to 15.5. I tend to think that this game turns into a low scoring, slug fest. I think taking the Bulldogs with the points, and the under 44 total points probably works in this one. I think this game looks more like LSU-Auburn than LSU-Alabama if that makes sense.
Arkansas travels to Columbia to take on the Gamecocks. The line started out at 15.5 in favor of the Gamecocks, but has since moved down to 13.5. There are some whispers going around about a possible upset, but I just don’t see it. The South Carolina defense, at home, should have a field day against Arkansas.
Missouri at Tennessee. This game now favors the Vols by 3 points, up from 2.5 points. Probably more interesting is the 60 point over/under line. I can’t see how this over doesn’t hit.
Ole Miss is a 2.5 point favorite against Vanderbilt at home (up from 1 earlier in the week).
Florida is a 27 point favorite against Louisiana-Lafayette at home.
