I am giddy just typing this. College football is closer and closer every time I write one of these. I started making spread sheets to figure out the win totals. I looked for any I had 2 off from the sports book. So if the books had an over/under at 6 and I either had it at 8 or 4, the value is there. With that said, let’s get into it.
Kentucky has a total at 7.5. I projected them at 9.75. Kentucky is returning 7 starters on offense and 6 on defense. The defense was so solid last year. The offense just needs to get a little better. I also think the SEC East is going to have a down year. Outside of Georgia the conference is not that impressive to me.
I think the Wildcats comfortably start 4-0. They beat Monroe, Mizzou, Chattanooga, and SC. They then play Florida and LSU back to back, but at home. I think they split here. So that has them at 5-1. They then play Georgia. So 5-2. Then Miss St and Tennessee. They’ll 100% beat Tennessee, and I think Miss St is a toss up. So now it’s either 7-2 or 6-3. I then think they finish with 3 wins. They’ll finish with Vandy, New Mexico St, and Louisville. That’s 10-2 or 9-3. Getting it done comfortably.
Official pick: Kentucky over 7.5 wins. Positive vibes only.
