NCAA Betting – SEC Picks

No. 1 Florida Gators @ No. 4 LSU Tigers

Florida LSU Spread: Florida -8


The No. 1 Florida Gators head to the bayou this week in what could be a very dangerous spot for them. The Gators have been consider among the best teams in college football not only this year but maybe even one of the best squads since the 1990’s Miami Hurricanes. This week, there is some doubt cast on their chances to win as star quarterback Tim Tebow recovers from a concussion.


The good news for the Gator fans is that Tebow’s concussion symptoms have cleared and he is in fact practicing again.


The Tigers present an interesting matchup for Florida. While many people think Les Miles’ boys are a fraud as the No. 4 team in the nation, but they continually find ways to win. Better yet, they haven’t played their best game of the season.


The Tigers did squeak by Washington on the road and Mississippi State on the road, and Georgia on the road, but those three teams are not cupcakes. Also, they should look much better now that they are back at home. Tiger Stadium is one of the toughest places to play in the nation, especially at night. The Tigers have won 32 straight night contest at Tiger Stadium and they’ll make it one more with an upset on Saturday night.

No. 17 Auburn Tigers @ Arkansas Razorbacks

Sportsbook odds: Auburn -2


The Auburn Tigers are ranked in the Top 25, which comes to the surprise of many – including NBA analyst Charles Barkley, who criticized the head coaching hire of Gene Chizik back in the summer. Chizik has reshaped the Tigers very quickly and made them into what could be a very scary team in the SEC.


The Tigers challenge increases this week as they head to Arkansas. Last week, Auburn won handily in Tennessee facing a defensive-minded Volunteers squad but now they are on the road in Arkansas, facing more of an offensive juggernaut.


The Tigers no-huddle, hurried offense has been handful for everyone they’ve faced this year. That will again be the case against Arkansas but the question is whether their defense will be able to handle Arkansas. The Tigers are an impressive team and they still deserve more credit than they are getting. Look for them to get another win this week.


Betting System Pick: Auburn +2
