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.
With just two more weeks to go, the against the spread race has turned into a three horse race. Parker maintains a slim lead over Matthew and Aaron. With few chances left to make up ground, it’ll be interesting to see who will finish with the lead.
Aaron: 25-15 (19-21 ATS)
Parker: 31-9 (20-20 ATS)
Matthew: 24-16 (19-21 ATS)
Brandon: 22-18 (13-27 ATS)
Sammy: 27-13 (16-24 ATS)
This is a pretty light slate this week. Though traditionally in the SEC, you do tend to see a trend of teams playing buy games later in the season, particularly that week before rivalry week. Mizzou is playing New Mexico State, but Alabama is also playing Austin Peay. A&M is hosting UMass. LSU also has UAB paying them a visit. There’s still games that can be entertaining, but this is pretty weak compared to the schedule we’ll get next week.
