Year2's Week 13 Picks


Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

Last week: 3-3 straight up, 4-2 against the spread

Season: 73-18 straight up, 34-41-3 against the spread

Picking lots of underdogs last week didn't work out so well for me straight up, but it did help against the spread. I don't think I'm going to break .500 against Vegas this year, which will be the first time in a while that I don't. Oh well. The house always wins, I guess.

As for this week's slate of games: yuck. Just, yuck.

South Carolina (-24.5) over South Alabama 30-20

I have a feeling this is going to be a game that the Gamecocks mostly sleepwalk through thanks to an early kick and the big win last week. The talent gap is big enough that Carolina will win, but a lack of consistent intensity is a big reason why the team is down this year.

Ole Miss (-3.5) over Arkansas 24-17

This line was 3 all week and then turned to 3.5 at the last opportunity. Hate you, Vegas. Anyway, Ole Miss's offense has a bit more to it than LSU's does, so I think the Hogs' rapidly improving defense will have some more problems this week than last.

Tennessee (-3.5) over Missouri 23-20

I don't have a clue on this one to be honest, so I'll take the favorite to win but the underdog to cover. Sure. This has an opportunity to be a really great game.

Mississippi State (-30) over Vanderbilt 50-10

The Bulldogs will blow off some steam after the loss and put poor Vandy's SEC schedule one step closer to a terrible close.
