Enjoy your turkey and mock our picks!

East Tennessee State v Vanderbilt
Trying to flex our gambling know-how but looking about as intimidating as mayo, not Dayo. Yes, I know they do not rhyme. Sue me.

It is Thanksgiving. We do not need me rambling about the results. Check the tables. I probably messed them up because I am hastily putting this together between the main meal and dessert. Dessert is way more important than gibberish about pseudo-gambling. VU ‘04 did become the first person to pass the 50-win threshold, so he should have another slice of pie.

The Rules

  1. All SEC games against FBS competition will be picked. FCS games are excluded since lines are often not available until very late in the week or even the morning of the game.
  2. One other game, typically a matchup of Top 25 teams, will be part of the picks.
  3. The picks will be made AGAINST THE SPREAD. Too many games are easy to pick heads up. Also, this will serve as a PSA for why you should not get into sports gambling if Tennessee (or wherever you reside) makes it legal.
  4. The lines will be taken from ESPN Oddshark (because ESPN was not updating by Monday morning) sometime Monday, so they may not match what is listed at the time this article is published.
