This weekend's SEC football picks. Last weekend was tough, but I'm still over .500 for the year. Lines, as always, are from USA Today.
LSU -40 against Tulane
The Tigers keep on rolling in the wake of last week's closer-than-expected victory over South Carolina.
South Carolina -14 against Mississippi State
The Gamecocks, coming off that closer-than-expected loss, take their frustrations out on the Bulldogs.
Ole Miss +15 against Georgia
Georgia is talented, but QB Matthew Stafford is inconsistent. Ole Miss isn't quite so talented, but the Bulldogs of Ga will do what the Bulldogs of MSU couldn't, and keep it close.
Kentucky -23.5 against Florida Atlantic
Andre Woodson has been excellent, but he hasn't had a really huge game yet. This week, he will.
Auburn +18 against Florida
The Gators will win, but the Tigers' defense will keep it within two touchdowns.
Alabama +2.5 against FSU
How are the Tide an underdog against the Seminoles? Oh, that's right - they're a lower-echelon SEC team, and the 'Noles are a mid- to upper-echelon ACC team. But 'Bama is just straight-up better.
Oregon -4.5 against Cal
Oregon is a very talented team; so is Cal. Tedford's team will have an advantage in speed on the outside, but QB Dennis Dixon (no INT's so far this season) gives the Ducks an edge.
