NCAAF Picks 5/10/07

Here are this weekend's SEC football picks. Unfortunately, the Kentucky-South Carolina game is already over, so I can't make a pick on that one. Odds, as usual, are from USA Today.

Vanderbilt +8 against Auburn
This one has all the markings of a trap game - Auburn is coming off of a big victory (over Florida, in case you've been comatose for the last week or so), and playing an underrated Vandy team that has a good deal of talent.

Mississippi State -16.5 against UAB
Don't overlook UAB - they're hardly a patsy. But MSU isn't as terrible as they used to be, and should win this one pretty easily.

Houston +11.5 against Alabama
I've got a feeling about this game. Alabama will escape, but the Cougars will put up a lot of points and keep it close.

Tennessee -2 against Georgia
Given that oddsmakers usually give the home team a 3-point boost in the line, Georgia is considered to be slightly the better team, according to these odds. Make sense to you? Me neither.

Florida +8 against LSU
Do I think the Gators will pull off the upset? As much as I hope they do, I don't see it. But they will keep it within a touchdown.

Out-of-conference Pick:
Oklahoma -10.5 against Texas
The Sooners have got to be angry after losing to lowly Colorado last week. They'll take it out on the Longhorns.

Last Week: 3-4 (ouch)
Season: 12-7
