Oh hell yes, last week was perfect for Bad Gambling Advice. Bad Gambling Advice went a perfect 0-7 ATS, meaning that if you had simply picked the opposite way on every game, you’d have won every game. This is what we strive for. Totals picks were a different story, going 3-4, but don’t let that overshadow the perfection.
On to the picks!
Mississippi State at Texas A&M (11:00 AM, SEC Network)
So, here is what we seem to have established: Mississippi State does not have an offense. I cannot pick a team that does not have an offense.
Projected final score: Texas A&M 28, Mississippi State 10
Picks: Texas A&M -10.5, Under 50.5
Auburn at LSU (2:30 PM, CBS)
Auburn’s defense may actually be able to slow down LSU’s prolific offense, which makes me lean both toward taking Auburn and the points, and also taking the Under.
Projected final score: LSU 31, Auburn 24
Picks: Auburn +10.5, Under 59
South Carolina at Tennessee (3:00 PM, SEC Network)
Projected final score: South Carolina 24, Tennessee 17
Picks: South Carolina -4.5, Under 47
Arkansas at Alabama (6:00 PM, ESPN)
Alabama won’t have Tua Tagovailoa, which probably doesn’t matter for actually winning the game, but does matter a lot for covering 32.
Projected final score: Alabama 35, Arkansas 7
Picks: Arkansas +32, Under 59.5
Missouri at Kentucky (6:30 PM, SEC Network)
Oh, Missouri is going to be angry. Kentucky is also still, as far as we know, playing a wide receiver at quarterback. Kentucky did not complete a single pass last week.
Projected final score: Missouri 24, Kentucky 7
Picks: Missouri -10.5, Under 44.5
