Team Speed Kills picks Week 5

Consolidation amongst the ranks this week.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

After last week had a few games that had some debates amongst the TSK staff on the winners, this week offers more consolidation on our picks.

The Arkansas-Texas A&M game was split about 50-50 and, with it going to overtime, that closeness in picks worked out on the field. Likewise, a close minority of contributors stumped for Florida and the competitiveness of the game (along with Kentucky’s inability to cover Florida wide receivers) reflected the close margin in the game.

This week offers a smaller number of games which are close in their picks. Three (of 12) are taking Vanderbilt to win at Florida and South Carolina to beat Texas A&M. Otherwise, a few heroes are taking flyers on underdogs including yours truly being the lone staffer to take Tennessee to beat Georgia and Bryan Manning taking Mississippi State to win on the road at Auburn.
