Every week, members of the Rock M Nation staff will take their best guesses in picking not only Missouri’s game (assuming it’s not a bye), but also three other SEC contests against the spread.. We’ll keep a running tally throughout the season to see the winner at the end of the year.
No changes from last week. Parker is still leading the overall wins to losses matchup and Matthew Smith is is still winning the percentage battle in the picks against the spread. No more byes next week, either!
Aaron: 14-6 (9-11 ATS)
Parker: 19-5 (13-11 ATS) **Week 7 BYE**
Matthew: 12-6 (12-8 ATS) **Week 6 BYE**
Brandon: 11-9 (8-12 ATS)
Sammy: 16-4 (8-12 ATS)
With Mizzou on the bye, the SEC slate is really good. An elite matchup in Knoxvilleis is the headliner, but there will be an intriguing matchup for Florida in The Swamp as well as a weird mid-season trip to Utah for Arkansas.
