This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …
The last four South Carolina games were each decided by four points or fewer. The Gators don’t score all that much, and they’re coming off an embarrassing performance at home against Missouri. Why would you possible think this is going to be anything but a close game? The line has gone down from Florida -7 to -6, but it’s still fine. USC could win this outright.

The world quickly fell in love with the idea of Missouri only giving away 14 points at home to Vanderbilt. The line shot up to 17 in a hurry, and if everything breaks right, it might go up a tick more. Vandy can throw enough to make this interesting – it’s not going to get its doors blown off. The 17 is good enough, but maybe you might end up getting an extra half a point somewhere.

Ohhhhh, yay. Ole Miss was getting 11.5 on the road at Texas A&M, and now its up to 13? The Aggies are better, but so far this season they’ve managed to beat Northwestern State and ULM by more than 13.
Now, they’re on a two-game losing streak, partly because Nick Fitzgerald went off and Auburn finally figured out that Jarrett Stidham can throw. Jordan Ta’amu is going to play, and he’s going to bomb away.

I’ve spent the last decade of my life always, always, always, always picking Alabama while giving away the points, unless it was something out in the stratosphere. The public is kinda, sorta thinking like I am, putting the line down against Mississippi State from 26 to 23.5 after it started out at 24. Just … be careful.
Nick Fitzgerald is just the type of veteran quarterback who might be able to do something interesting, and the Bulldog D line is a wall for the SEC’s No. 1 ranked – yeah, it is – defense.
The other part of this? How much did the investment community go into a panic when Tua Tagovailoa’s knee looked like it might be a problem against LSU? Bama might win this thins 55-0, but still, the 23.5 is awfully enticing.

Let’s not get crazy here. Kentucky might not like to do that whole scoring thing, and Tennessee is at home, but the Cats are only at -5.5. This can be low scoring, and UK can still win this by a touchdown. By the way, if you’re looking at the under on the 42, you’re not going to get any argument.

It can’t be as simple as Gus Malzahn Figured Out Jarrett Stidham Can Throw, can it? All of a sudden, Auburn’s passing game came to life to save the day against Texas A&M. Georgia is absolutely two touchdowns better than Auburn, but … if Stidham goes off, and the Tigers play like they have nothing to lose – which they don’t – they should be able to keep this to within 14.

Just checking, but didn’t Arkansas lose at home to Vanderbilt by 14? Yeah, fine, the Hogs have had two weeks off, and LSU is coming off the Alabama game, but LSU giving up 13.5 just isn’t that bad. It all comes down to whether or not the Tigers care.
The CFP might be gone, but do the care about the Sugar Bowl? There’s a chance this line goes down to 13, but there shouldn’t be a problem with motivation coming off a shutout.
