Last Week: 6-0 straight up; 5-1 against the spread

Season: 37-12 straight up; 20-19-1 against the spread

South Carolina (-3) over Mississippi State 27-10

The Gamecocks found something with Connor Shaw last week, though that something could have just been Kentucky's putrid defense. Meanwhile, Mississippi State is struggling. I think South Carolina's defensive line will disrupt MSU's offense while South Carolina will move the ball well.

LSU (-17) over Tennessee 37-10

Tennessee is reeling, having lost yet another starter in Tyler Bray. LSU is rolling, and its facing an offense averaging -14.5 rushing yards per game in SEC play. This won't be pretty.

Alabama (-26) over Ole Miss 44-6

I'm not sure how high the line would need to get to pick Ole Miss to cover.

Georgia (-11) over Vanderbilt 32-3

Probably the only way UGA doesn't cover is if Mark Richt gets a 7-0 lead and begins running out the clock from there. Based on the past few weeks, it's not out of the question.

Florida (-2) over Auburn 24-20

You know AU fans will be fired up given that A) the NCAA just closed its investigation of the school, and B) a not insignificant portion of the fan base thinks Urban Meyer was involved with the start of the investigation in the first place. Ultimately, I think Florida's defense will be the difference, but honestly, I wouldn't pick this game if I could avoid it.
