There are some huge betting lines for several SEC games in Week 8 of the 2021 season. So if you’re picking the favorites with the spread, you’ll need lopsided matchups.

Clay Travis doesn’t seem to think that is going to happen. The FOX Sports betting analyst shared his Week 8 betting predictions on this week, and he has 4 SEC underdogs covering the spread — Vanderbilt, LSU, Tennessee and South Carolina.

While none of those teams are among the best in the country, Travis is confident in each of them to play well enough to keep their respective games more competitive than the betting line is giving them credit for.

Here are all of Travis’ Week 8 gambling picks, with his SEC predictions in bold:

Northwestern (+23.5) to cover against Michigan
Navy (+28) to cover against Cincinnati
Over 39.5 total points for Wisconsin-Purdue
Oklahoma State (+7) to cover against Iowa State
BYU (-3.5) to cover against Washington State
UCLA (-1) to cover against Oregon
Pittsburgh (-3) to cover against Clemson
Vanderbilt (+21) to cover against Mississippi State
LSU (+9.5) to cover against Ole Miss
Tennessee (+25.5) to cover against Alabama
South Carolina (+21) to cover against Texas A&M
Under 45 total points for South Carolina-Texas A&M
