Week 7 SEC Picks And Analysis For Every Team


For the first time all season, our picks were not so hot last week.

However, we still have a pretty clear picture of the favorites for Atlanta and plenty of football left to get us back on track.

Onward to week 7 it is!

Florida @ Vanderbilt 

The Gators looked all but dead after a week 2 home loss to Kentucky, though all is well right now in Gainesville.  Coming off of three big SEC wins, Dan Mullen’s bunch is scorching hot.  It’s tempting to pick the Commodores in an upset, with Florida possibly overlooking Vanderbilt, but we just can’t do that.

After picking the orange and blue to lose each of the past 4 weeks, we simply cannot afford to get risky here.  If you watched Vanderbilt play in Athens last week, nothing stood out to make us believe they will beat Florida.

Prediction: Florida 34, Vanderbilt 17

Texas A&M @ South Carolina  

Just one week ago we would have rolled our eyes at an Aggies-Gamecocks matchup but not anymore.  Both Texas A&M and South Carolina kept podium hopes alive in their respective divisions after week 6, if that’s even a thing.

Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies finally got over the hump to a ranked win last Saturday, putting an end to Kentucky’s improbable undefeated run. Will Muschamp and the Gamecocks, too, got past a stepping stone, having finally beaten a decent team.

It’s hard to predict how these two foes will fare at Williams-Brice, but we’ll take our chances on the Aggies having been battle tested against Alabama and Clemson.

Prediction:  Texas A&M 31, South Carolina 20

Tennessee @ Auburn 

First-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt and the Tennessee Volunteers travel down to The Plains for a cross-division clash with Auburn. The Vols have lost eleven straight conference games dating back to the 2016 season. However, the Tigers’ ‘Gus Bus’ ran out of gas in Starkville last week, with a previously stout offense nowhere to be found.

Call us crazy, but the Vols might escape Jordan-Hare victorious on Saturday. An 11 am central time start for a struggling team takes just about all the danger out of Pat Dye-Field.  Tennessee, coming off a bye week after a hard-fought loss to the Bulldogs, looks destined to shock the world.  We’ll roll with the Vols, but accept any trolling from you all after an Auburn win.

Prediction: Tennessee 24, Auburn 16

Georgia @ LSU 

Alright, let’s get to the game that actually matters here.  Despite all the fun discussing the rest of the conference it’s about time we talk about Georgia football.

Joe Burrow and the LSU Tigers suffered a hiccup in The Swamp last weekend, but don’t expect them to lay down lightly to the second-ranked Bulldogs.  LSU has already been battle tested in victories over Miami and Auburn, though those early season wins are far less impressive than first thought to be.

Georgia has not played in a road environment like LSU since last year’s atrocious Auburn loss, but we don’t see another rare occurrence like that one happening again.  The Dawgs have too much talent to lose this game, considering they have not played their starters a full game yet and are sitting at 6-0.

Kirby Smart’s star-studded bunch blows the doors off of Ed Orgeron’s ‘Bayou Bengals’ late.

Prediction: Georgia 42, LSU 24

Missouri @ Alabama 

Some of you took us a little too serious on our Alabama losing jokes last week but that’s alright.  Drew Lock and the pass-heavy Tigers will face a similar result to Arkansas’ last weekend.

We all know the Crimson Tide are going to run away with this one, but it will be interesting to see if their defensive woes persist with Mizzou.  And by woes, we mean surrendering 31 points in a 34-point victory over the Razorbacks, a real tight game indeed.

Prediction: Alabama 56, Missouri 24

Ole Miss @ Arkansas 

The Rebels may not be the greatest team in the west, but they certainly have what it takes to beat Arkansas.  Although, the Hogs scored 31 on Bama, who hung 62 on Ole Miss, so a trickling of events like the Troy is better than Auburn tree last year might happen.  Troy beat LSU, who beat Auburn, who beat Georgia, I’m sure you remember.

Anyways, back to these two SEC West cellar dwellers.

Prediction: Ole Miss 37, Arkansas 28
