Week 10 is a biggest week in SEC football in 2018, and it’s not even close. No. 1 Alabama will transport to Death Valley to take on No. 3 LSU in a diversion in which, if a Crimson Tide prevails, will tighten adult a SEC West title. Earlier in a day, No. 6 Georgia will conflict No. 9 Kentucky in Lexington in a diversion that will establish a SEC East champion.

The dual headliners can both be seen on a SEC on CBS starting during 3:30 p.m., and pretension a fun week in a SEC. Let’s make some picks.

Record true up: 61-18 (3-2 final week)
Record opposite a spread: 26-34-1 (2-3 final week)
*Games yet lines are not counted in a ATS record

Main courses

No. 1 Alabama during No. 3 LSU (+14.5)

  • Burrow time
  • Tua vs. Greedy
  • Shootout?

Let’s be honest about what this diversion indeed is — a conflict of quarterbacks. Both defenses are lights out, yet invulnerability doesn’t win championships anymore. “Just enough” invulnerability wins championships. Alabama has adequate invulnerability to delayed down Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow, who’s completing usually 53.8 percent of his passes, tossed usually 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Simply put, he’s a game-manager. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, on a other hand, is a difference-maker. The super-sophomore has tossed 25 touchdowns — 13 in a initial entertain of games — and is on gait to erase 2017 Heisman Trophy leader Baker Mayfield’s single-season flitting potency record. Tagovailoa will have adequate success opposite Greedy Williams and a Tigers delegate to put Burrow in a symbol where he has to chuck to win, and he’s simply not able of doing that. Pick: Alabama (-14.5)

No. 6 Georgia during No. 9 Kentucky (+9)

  • Fromm back
  • Wilson vs. Bulldogs defense
  • Game of a century

It will be a furious and rough atmosphere in Lexington for a biggest home diversion in a era — and maybe all time. The Wildcats invulnerability is solid, yet it’s tough to omit how gentle Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm looked opposite a really good Florida invulnerability a week ago. Even yet a Bulldogs invulnerability hasn’t been good when compared to what it has been in year’s past, Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson won’t mount out as somebody they have to stop by a atmosphere during diversion preparation. As a result, a Bulldogs will bucket adult opposite a run, delayed down Benny Snell and force Wilson to make adequate mistakes to take a SEC East climax and lift divided late to get a cover. Pick: Georgia (-9)

Strong cocktail

No. 20 Texas AM during Auburn (-4)

  • Aggies rebound
  • Tigers fresh
  • All about a using game

If we cruise Auburn is expected removing around 3 points for being during home, this is flattering tighten to a collect ’em. Pick Texas AM. The run invulnerability is a best in a SEC during 89.25 yards authorised per game, and Auburn hasn’t surfaced a 150-yard symbol in 4 of a final 5 games. If a Tigers can’t run, quarterback Jarrett Stidham has panicked in a pocket, not even seen open far-reaching receivers downfield and finished adequate mistakes to have some pursuit for Malik Willis underneath center. The invulnerability will keep a Tigers in a game, yet Aggies using behind Trayveon Williams will have a few large plays in a fourth entertain opposite a ragged down invulnerability to get a undisguised win. Pick: Texas AM (+4)


South Carolina during Ole Miss (PK)

  • Bentley back?
  • Ta’amu vs. Gamecocks D
  • Let’s get weird

How fun will this be? A collect ’em diversion in Oxford with a Rebels entrance off a bye week to try to find something — anything — defensively to keep them in games. Will it matter, though? The Gamecocks are final in a SEC in plays of 30 or some-more yards with 10, while a Rebels lead a discussion with 41. Quarterback Jordan Ta’amu will have adequate success opposite an normal South Carolina invulnerability to force Gamecocks quarterback Jake Bentley into too many flitting situations. Because of that, give me one or dual large plays in a fourth to give Ole Miss a large home win. Pick: Ole Miss (PK)

Missouri during No. 11 Florida (-6)

  • Hangovers?
  • Strength vs. strength
  • Slowing down using game

The Gators are on hangover warning after losing a adversary diversion to Georgia final week and a shot during a SEC East title. It’s time to rebound behind in a Swamp opposite a Tigers group that mislaid on a walk-off touchdown during home final weekend. This one will be sloppy, that means a using diversion will confirm it. The Gators are averaging 5.07 yards per lift in 2018, yet a Tigers have been vigourous opposite a run — generally final week when they hold Benny Snell to 67 rushing yards. The Gators will find a approach to get a pursuit finished late, and that six-point widespread allows a touchdown to get us a cover. Pick: Florida (-6)

Side dishes

Charlotte during Tennessee (-21)

  • Get right Guarantano
  • 49ers offense struggling
  • Vols need it

After losing to South Carolina final week, a Vols have to get right opposite Charlotte to get prepared for a widen run to play eligibility. Volunteers quarterback Jarrett Guarantano has been income on third down, completing 66.2 percent of his passes on third downs. That suggests that he’s building confidence, and will continue to do that on Saturday. Charlotte is 118th in a republic in yards per play during 4.58, and will be propitious to get to 4 yards per play opposite a Vols. This one gets ugly. Pick: Tennessee (-21)

Louisiana Tech during No. 18 Mississippi State (-24)

  • Fitz back?
  • Bulldogs pass defense
  • Trap?

This is your all-time trap game, with Mississippi State entrance off a large home win over Texas AM and a highway outing to Alabama appearing subsequent week. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald was income by a atmosphere final week opposite a Aggies, yet is squaring off opposite a Bulldogs pass invulnerability that’s fourth in Conference USA in defensive flitting potency (113.98). Fitzgerald is final in a SEC in flitting potency among subordinate quarterbacks (102.70). In a end, Fitzgerald will have adequate success on a belligerent to get a win, yet have a good adequate day by a atmosphere to acquire a cover. Pick: Louisiana Tech (+24)
