Every Wednesday, Rock M Nation will post game times and channels for the week’s SEC football schedule, including, of course, your Missouri Tigers. We will also include betting lines for the SEC slate as well as some other lines of interest. DISCLAIMER: Rock M Nation is not an online gambling operator, nor a gambling site of any kind. We are simply here to provide information about sports betting for entertainment purposes only. None of the staff will be using this information for gambling purposes and are not liable for any losses incurred due to the analysis contained within.

Last week was our first losing week. Iowa barely beat a team that Vanderbilt defeated, and Malik Willis tried to will Liberty to victory, but it wasn’t enough. Thanks to SMU our week wasn’t a complete bust, but it was still our first week in the negative. Our season-long record now sits at 7-4-1, but looking at the board this week, I can taste the first 3-0 of the year.

This Week’s Picks

Ole Miss +14.5 @ Alabama

To me, this is the no-brainer pick of the week. Personally, I would consider Ole Miss a top-8 team in the country at a minimum, and they have the Heisman favorite. Against Florida, Bama showed that while they are the best team in the country, they aren’t flawless. Yes, the game is in Tuscaloosa, but do you know the last team to walk in there and win a game? Oh, yeah that’s right, it was Ole Miss. I think the Rebels probably lose by 7-10 points but 14.5 gives you massive amounts of leeway and a huge backdoor cover opportunity if it comes down to it.

Cincinnati -2.5 @ Notre Dame

In my mind, Notre Dame is the most fraudulent team in the Top 10. They had just 3 rushing yards last week and only won because Wisconsin is even more fraudulent. Jack Coan’s health for this week is also still in the air, and this will be Cincinnati’s biggest game of the year. I’m not the biggest Desmond Ridder guy, but I will say the Bearcats put up a valiant effort against UGA in the Peach Bowl last year, which indicates to me they won’t be intimidated walking into South Bend. I like Cincy to win by at least a TD and add a victory over one of the biggest brands in CFB to their playoff resume.

Texas -5 @ TCU

Yep, that’s right we are taking three road teams this week. I love Texas, and I love Casey Thompson and Bijan Robinson. In my eyes, the Arkansas game was a fluke because of the lack of Casey Thompson in the early portions of that game. Now that the veteran is under center, Texas is ready to explode. Last week he had 6 TD and the Longhorns scored 70 points (that was not a typo). With Thompson throwing the ball, and Bijan Robinson simply being the best player in the Big 12 every week, I think Texas is going to continue to roll as they get ready for OU next week. TCU couldn’t handle SMU last week, just wait till they have to deal with this revamped Longhorn offense. I like Texas big in this one.
