Every week, members of the Rock M Nation staff will take their best guesses in picking not only Missouri’s game, 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.
Here’s our tally after week one.
Matthew Smith coming off the top rope with the only perfect score of the week! Nice picks against the spread, too. Let’s see if he can keep it going through week two.
Aaron: 3-1 (2-2 ATS)
Parker: 3-1 (2-2 ATS)
Matthew: 4-0 (3-1 ATS)
Brandon: 2-2 (1-3 ATS)
Sammy: 3-1 (2-2 ATS)
