I know I am refraining from posting full predictions this week but I have decided to still post the Elldee Sports Best Bets to quench your thirst. There are four games this week that you can count on to cover. Prepare for a heavy dose of the SEC.
Texas A&M (+4) @ Auburn
Georgia (-9) @ Kentucky
West Virginia (+2) @ Texas
Alabama (-14.5) @ LSU
Texas A&M travels to the plains and bring a winning record with them. Auburn has been very up and down, up vs junk teams and down vs any talent. Last week’s loss for Texas A&M has driven this line down too far. The Aggies and their $75 Million Man Jimbo Fisher will hold on for a cover and possibly an outright win.
Georgia has been here before and has an offense that can both run and pass. The Kentucky atmosphere will be electric and the Wildcats full of emotion. That emotion will carry them until the 2nd half, where the Bulldogs will assert their will and pull away late.
West Virginia’s Will Grier knows this is his final shot in college for a Conference championship and possible spot in the playoffs. Texas is playing better but is not back yet. Following a disappointing loss last week, the Longhorns will flounder early and struggle to catch up. Take the WVU Mountaineers!
Alabama is simply a machine. LSU feels like Rocky Balboa trying to take down Ivan Drago. They hope to hear those famous words, “He’s not a machine, he’s a man!”. I don’t see it happening this time. Alabama all day long.
Good luck this week and I’ll be back next week with the full slate like usual.
