The chase for first saw no movement with CDA, VU ‘04, and me all coming in at 4-3. Paul had the same record as the three of us. Tom was best of the week at 5-2. Stan slipped a bit in his battle for 4th with Tom and Paul by posting a 3-4 mark. #FadeImport was in full effect with VI limping to 2-5. For the week, the total was 26-23. That tally brings the staff to 345-336 on the season.
Vanderbilt, Georgia, and Oklahoma were good for 5 wins. Both MSU’s handed an L to an equal number of us. Auburn would come through for Tom, Paul and me. Baylor helped a slim 4 to 3 majority by winning by more than 2.5 against a not-so-back Texas.
The bye weeks are nearly through. Only Vanderbilt has a bye week in the SEC. Oklahoma is also off. Michigan State found their way in the Dealer’s Choice game for the second straight week because the spread made little to no sense to me. No games are unanimous, but two of the nine games are split five to one. Four more matchups have only two on one side. That leaves three games with the tightest split possible with seven pickers.
- Normally, the picks are for all SEC games with one dealer’s choice where I get to choose another game to make us pick. With two new teams set to join in “2025” (Who wants to bet that timeline holds up?), Texas and Oklahoma will have all of their games picked, too.
- 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, which is especially important with sports gambling being legal in Tennessee now.
- The lines will be taken from Oddshark’s consensus spread some time Monday, so they may not match what is listed at the time this article is published.
