Updated scores: Jon is 58-36 ATS and 80-14 overall while Kevin is 52-42 ATS and 77-12 overall
Mississippi State (-2.5) at Arkansas
Jon: This will turn out to be a slugfest between State and Arkansas. MSU is tough against the run, and Arkansas is very one-dimensional on offense. I like State on the road to win and cover. Mississippi State 31, Arkansas 28
Kevin: Mississippi State is a more talented roster on both sides of the ball. I like Dan Mullen to get the win here and cover. Miss St 24, Arkansas 14.
Georgia Southern at Florida (-27.5)
Jon: This is Florida’s only gimmie in the last several weeks, and the Gators will take care of business and the defense will dominate, but their offense won‘t cover that massive spread. Florida 28, Georgia Southern 10
Kevin: Florida doesn’t cover large spreads with its current offense. Florida 24, Georgia Southern 3.
Kentucky at Georgia (-23.5)
Jon: Georgia gets back into the win column this week against the Wildcats, and the Bulldogs can’t let the Cats hang around for four quarters. Georgia 38, Kentucky 13
Kevin: I like Georgia to put up some points. I like them to cover the spread. Georgia 41, Kentucky 10.
Texas A&M at LSU (-4.5)
Jon: I love Texas A&M on the road with their backs against the wall. Johnny Manziel’s Heisman and a BCS bowl bid will be on the line. It’s going to be tough, but I like the Aggies on the road. They’re undefeated in road games under Kevin Sumlin in two seasons. Texas A&M 49, LSU 44
Kevin: Shootout! I like Manziel to torch this LSU defense which I still think is very mediocre. Obviously, the Aggie defense isn’t anything special as well, so look for some serious point scoring. I’m hoping for a Manziel Heisman moment! Texas A&M 51, LSU 41.
Missouri (-2.5) at Ole Miss
Jon: This is the toughest game of the week to pick . Both teams are hot, and their offenses are really playing well. And both teams have better-than-advertised defenses. I’m a believer in Mizzou this week; they go on the road and get it done against a very talented and formidable Rebels squad. Missouri 41, Ole Miss 39
Kevin: Wow. What a game this is going to be. I’m going to be firmly planted on the couch watching this one. Mizzou is the more overall talented team. It’s going to be a tough environment, but I like the more talented Mizzou to win, but I think it comes down to a single point or two. Mizzou 35, Ole Miss 33.
Chattanooga at Alabama (-49)
Jon: This won’t even be close. Why is Alabama playing Chattanooga again? Alabama 48, Chattanooga 3
Kevin: Alabama wins big. Alabama 45, Chattanooga 0.
Vanderbilt at Tennessee (-2.5)
Jon: This is another tough rivalry game to pick, and Vanderbilt has been handling teams this season that self destruct down the stretch. Although Tennessee should win this game at home, I’m going with the Dores on the road to wreck the Vols’ bowl hopes. Vanderbilt 31, Tennessee 28
Kevin: Important game for both programs. I usually lean toward Vanderbilt with James Franklin at the helm. They always come ready to play, but the Vols are starting to get back into the mode of defending their home turf well. I’m going with the Vols here. Tennessee 27, Vanderbilt 24.
Coastal Carolina at South Carolina (-34.5)
Jon: Watch out for 10-win Coastal Carolina! I’m just yanking your chain. Just don’t let Coastal hang around like last year against Wofford. That was a tough one to watch. South Carolina 40, Coastal 10
Kevin: Snoozefest. South Carolina 35, Coastal 7.
