SEC Football Predictions: Week 7

SEC Football Predictions

Last week we went 3-4 on our predictions – having easily our worst week of the season – and were exactly correct on zero games. The four misses were by Missouri, LSU, Kentucky, and Auburn, as they lost to South Carolina, Florida, Texas A&M, and Mississippi State respectively. The only saving grace is that with the exception of the Auburn loss, these were all close games. The closest game to a correct score prediction was Georgia beating Vanderbilt, a game that was still missed by 11 points.

Here are some score predictions for Week 7 of the SEC season:

Saturday, October 13

(14) Florida @ Vanderbilt – The Florida secondary has been among the best in the country and the only way Vandy has been able to move the ball is through their air. Unless the Commodores running game suddenly finds something then their defense is going to have to be lights out against Feleipe Franks and the Florida offense. Florida 28, Vanderbilt 24 MORE: Vandy 3 Keys, Florida 3 Keys, First Look: Vandy vs. Florida

Tennessee @ (21) Auburn –  The Auburn defense will be important here as the Tigers offense hasn’t got going at all in 2018. Look for Gus Malzahn to get the running game going early here as he searches for a winning formula with this team. Auburn 38, Tennessee 12.

(2) Georgia @ (13) LSU – LSU was too sloppy last week in losing to Florida. Georgia has been rolling along so far without a pass rush (last in the SEC with six sacks) but this is the week that their defensive front comes alive. Georgia 24, LSU 14.

(22) Texas A&M @ South Carolina – The Aggies do all the little things right you need to win football games. They lead the conference in both time of possession and third down conversion rate, and they are very, very good defensively against the run. Winning in Columbia is never easy, but Kellen Mond will do enough to pip the Gamecocks. Texas A&M 31, South Carolina 20.  MORE: USC 3 Keys, First Look: TAMU vs. USC

Missouri @ (1) Alabama – The numbers Alabama has been putting up this year are just scary. This could be the first team in five years to average 50 points per game in the FBS, and their Heisman Trophy contending quarterback has yet to throw a pass in the fourth quarter all year. Drew Lock is a future NFL starter, but he has been off this year and he is likely to be without top option at WR Emanuel Hall. Alabama 58, Missouri 20. MORE: Alabama 3 Keys, First Look: Alabama vs. Missouri

Ole Miss @ Arkansas – This will be a shootout if the Arkansas offense shows up. Ole Miss has bombed away on everyone except Alabama and LSU, with QB Jordan Ta’amu putting up video game numbers in some of those contests. The Rebels just has too much offense here. Ole Miss 52, Arkansas 35. MORE: Arkansas 3 Keys, First Look: Ole Miss vs. Arkansas
