On Saturday’s newest segment, managing editor, Landon Young, does this week’s Southeastern Conference pick ‘em challenge with his father, Gerald Young.
My father is the reason I am so crazy about Mississippi State sports. He brought me home from the hospital when I was born in a No. 1 Mississippi State jersey. Growing up, we woke up early every Saturday and watched ESPN College GameDay together while drinking some fresh coffee. This week’s cover picture was taken right before I graduated from Mississippi State in 2019. Every week, I call him before Saturday and we discuss who will win this Saturday inside the SEC. We will discuss betting lines, close games and winners each week.
Let’s PICK ‘EM:
Georgia (-15.5) at Kentucky
Pops: I like Georgia to cover in this one. After the Tennessee game, I was not very impressed with Kentucky.
Son: This one is tough to me because it’s in Kentucky, but I’ll play it safe and take Georgia to cover.
LSU (-3) at Auburn
Pops: LSU covers the -3. Auburn shouldn’t have beaten Ole Miss and LSU looked good with a fresh QB in last week.
Son: I’ll take LSU to cover as well. I don’t see Auburn being able to do a whole lot against the LSU Tigers.
Ole Miss (-16.5) at Vanderbilt
Pops: VANDY COVERS! I went for Ole Miss last weekend, but not today!
Son: I’ll actually take Ole Miss to cover in this one. I think the Lane Train will put up some numbers today against Vandy.
Mississippi State at Alabama (-30.5)
Pops: I’m taking the Mississippi State Bulldogs to cover in this one. Why? I’m not sure.
Son: 30 points...Whew... I say Mississippi State’s defense doesn’t allow that to happen. I’m taking the Bulldogs to cover.
Arkansas at Texas A&M (-12)
Pops: The Arkansas Razorbacks cover in this one. Texas A&M hasn’t impressed me up to this point.
Son: I’ll take the Razorbacks to cover the 12 points as well. I enjoy watching Arkansas play for the first time in years.
Missouri at Florida (-13)
Pops: Dang, this is the hardest line of the week to me. Give me Mizzou to cover.
Son: I agree that this is the toughest pick of the week, but GATOR CHOMP. Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators cover the 13 points.
