Week 4 was probably the craziest week of the SEC football season so far across the 10 games occurring around the league. Georgia struggled a little for the first time this year against a very inferior Kent State team and Tennessee got a massive win versus Florida to improve to improve to 2-16 in that series in the last 18 meetings (though they still tried their best to lose at the end despite seemingly dominating for much of the game). Ole Miss and Kentucky both took down their mid-major opponents by only one score, and Arkansas lost to A&M on a literally unprecedented game-winning field goal attempt that hit the top of the right upright.
Through it all, we've maintained only a five game difference from top to bottom in our SEC Bets Challenge. There's been a slight shakeup in the leaderboard, however, as I now hold the overall lead. Jacob and I are still tied for first on the money line, Micah has taken sole possession of against the spread bets, and I've caught Ryne to tie for the lead in picks on the point total.
We'll only be picking five games this week, which include two top-25 matchups, though the game expected to be most competitive will be #17 Texas A&M at unranked Mississippi State. There won't be too much room for a significant shakeup in our leaderboard this week, but as always, every single bet could make a difference by the end of the season.
#7 Kentucky at #14 Ole Miss (MISS -6.5, O/U 54.5)
#2 Alabama at #20 Arkansas (ALA -17.5, O/U 60.5)
#17 Texas A&M at Mississippi State (MSU -3.5, O/U 45.0)
LSU at Auburn (LSU -8.5, O/U 45.5)
#1 Georgia at Missouri (UGA -28.0, O/U 54.0)
