Week 4 Predictions: SEC-on-SEC Action


In week 3, most of the SEC was still playing outside the conference, which usually makes for easy pickings. Eh, it was alright, but I don’t make Cs. Must get better.

Last week: 10-3 (76.9%)
This week: 9-1 (90.0%)
Overall: 42-11 (7.92%)

Finally, most of the SEC is playing each other (which means I don’t have to pick as many games), but that only means this gets tougher. Let’s check out the slate.

9/22

Kent State at Ole Miss – The Rebels were worn out by Nick Saban last week. Now they get Nick Saban’s alma mater. Ole Miss will score 50 points and be like “yeah, take that Saban” unironically. Because that’s how they are.

Ole Miss 52, Kent State 10

Ole Miss 38, Kent State 17 SUCCESS!

Georgia at Missouri – You’ll hear that this may be a test for Georgia because people need to keep games interesting. Then when Georgia wins by 3 touchdowns, they’ll act as if Georgia has done something.

Georgia 37, Missouri 10

Georgia 43, Missouri 29 SUCCESS!

Texas A&M at Alabama – Everything I just said about Georgia and Missouri but replace Georgia with Alabama and Missouri with Texas A&M.

Alabama 42, Texas A&M 13

Alabama 45, Texas A&M 23 SUCCESS!

South Carolina at Vanderbilt – South Carolina got hype, got whooped, and got cancelled. Now they get a decent Vandy, I think. It will be a close one.

South Carolina 24, Vanderbilt 20

South Carolina 37, Vanderbilt 14 SUCCESS!

Florida at Tennessee – Remember when?

Florida 27, Tennessee 17

Florida 47, Tennessee 21 SUCCESS!

Mississippi State at Kentucky – I can’t believe Mississippi State’s schedule. How are they able to keep up? It’s JUST SO HARD.

Mississippi State 34, Kentucky 20

Kentucky 21, Mississippi State 7 FAILURE

Louisiana Tech at LSU – Joe Burrow will complete 1% of his passes and LSU will win by 30.

LSU 38, Louisiana Tech 7

LSU 38, Louisiana Tech 21 SUCCESS!

Arkansas at Auburn – Check back tomorrow for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: burnt bacon.

Auburn 52, Arkansas 10

Auburn 34, Arkansas 3 SUCCESS!

Other Games of Note

TCU at Texas – Texas back?! No, but they’ll win this game. TCU is getting too much.

Texas 28, TCU 17

Texas 31, TCU 16 SUCCESS!

Stanford at Oregon – Stanford is ranked #7. Oregon is ranked #20. That’s what I’m basing my pick on.

Stanford 38, Oregon 31 SUCCESS!

Now that you know who will win, head on over to the 2018 War Blogle Pick ’em and get your picks in. There will be weekly prizes and an overall winner at the end of the season. It’s easy. Do it.
