Pops/Son Pick ‘Em Challenge: SEC Week 9

New, 3 comments

Managing Editor, Landon Young, collaborates with his father, Gerald Young, on this week’s SEC pick ‘em challenge.

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 on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. 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:

Missouri (-6.5) at South Carolina

Pops: Missouri wins and covers. I don’t see South Carolina being in a good spot after losing Will Muschamp.

Son: I totally agree with pops. I don’t see South Carolina being in a good place to pull this win out. I’m taking Missouri to win and cover.

LSU (-2.5) at Arkansas

Pops: Give me Arkansas in this one. Winning and covering!

Son: I’m taking Arkansas to win and cover as well. I think they’re just the better team.

Kentucky at Alabama (-30)

Pops: These are large numbers, but I’m taking ‘Bama to cover.

Son: 30 points... whew... I’ll take Kentucky to cover the -30 but barely.

Florida (-31.5) at Vanderbilt

Pops: Another large number, but I’m taking the Florida Gators to cover.

Son: Sheez... These are some high numbers. I’ll take Florida to cover actually. The Gators’ offense has been rocking lately.

Tennessee at Auburn (-10.5)

Pops: Both teams are so unpredictable, but I’m going to say that Auburn covers.

Son: The toughest pick of the week for me. I’ll take Tennessee to cover but Auburn to win.

Mississippi State at Georgia (-25)

Pops: I really do think we cover in this one. Mississippi State covers the -25. I’m taking the Bulldogs... to win for sure.

Son: I gotta go with the Dawgs... The Mississippi State Bulldogs, of course. I’ll take us to cover.

Missouri (-6.5) at South Carolina
