With only two incorrect picks over the last two weeks, I’ve brought my average back up to a passing grade.
Last week: 6-1 (85.7%)
This week: 6-0 (100.0%)
Overall: 69-27 (71.9%)
Week 8 only had 5 SEC games. This week only has 4 SEC games. Does anybody want to play football?
Missouri at Vanderbilt – You could not pay me a bitcoin to watch this game. It’s the team that’s only in the SEC for another market and a team that’s only in the SEC for their grades. They’re both bad, but Vandy is worse.
Missouri 38, Vanderbilt 20
Missouri 37, Vanderbilt 28 – SUCCESS
Georgia vs. Florida (Jacksonville, FL) – This is still the only game that CBS puts on their schedule before the season starts. It hasn’t been a good game or mattered since, well, ever. I could not tell you the last time I cared about it.
Georgia 34, Florida 7
Georgia 34, Florida 7 – SUCCESS **PERFECT PICK**
Kentucky at Mississippi State – The Wildcats have gotten an easy ride to a 1-loss record. They’ll lose in Starkville to help prove that point.
Mississippi State 31, Kentucky 27
Mississippi State 31, Kentucky 17 – SUCCESS
Ole Miss at Auburn – Check back later for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: I ain’t ‘fraid of no rebearshark.
Auburn 44, Ole Miss 14
Auburn 31, Ole Miss 20 – SUCCESS
Other Games of Note
Michigan at Michigan State – Is this the quietest undefeated, Top 8 matchup known to man? Seriously, both of these teams have beaten literally nobody and even beat those nobodies by close scores. There are three teams with losses ranked ahead of undefeated, big name Big 10 teams. That says it all. Home team wins.
Michigan State 23, Michigan 17
Michigan State 37, Michigan 33 – SUCCESS
Iowa at Wisconsin – The Hawkeyes were destroyed by Purdue two weeks ago, but don’t worry, they’re back in the Top 10 and are currently picked to lose to an unranked team. Ban all polls. Home team wins.
Wisconsin 17, Iowa 7
Wisconsin 27, Iowa 7 – SUCCESS
