College Football Betting: SEC has been less than impressive thus far

09.18.2017     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Things haven't been pretty in the SEC thus far save for a handful of teams. In non-conference play, SEC teams are currently 11-18-1 against the spread. Below is a quick, and yes cliche, look at the “good”, the “bad”, and the “ugly."

The good...

Vanderbilt - Big win over Kansas State ups the Commodores to 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS. SEC plays gets underway this weekend with Alabama headed to Nashville.

Georgia - Bulldogs look to be the favorite in the East after dominating Appalachian State and winning outright in South Bend. Currently a -6 home favorite over fellow "good" squad Mississippi State.

Mississippi State - Bulldogs have looked dominant on both sides of the football en route to a 3-0 SU/ATS start. At Georgia and at Auburn the next two weeks.

Alabama - Workmanlike effort through three weeks though failed to cover against Fresno State and Colorado State.

The bad...

Kentucky - Yes, the Cats are 3-0 SU but only 1-2 ATS and dead even from a total yardage perspective despite playing Southern Miss, Eastern Kentucky and South Carolina.

South Carolina - 2-0 start was buoyed by a handful fluke plays. Outgained Kentucky 6.28 ypp to 4.84 ypp but alarmingly lost as home chalk, 23-13.

Tennessee - Should have lost to Georgia Tech but won, should have beat Florida but lost...such is life under Butch Jones. Outgained from a total yardage perspective on the season.

Auburn - The offense remains a total mess. Fifteen sacks allowed, 510 total yards last week and yet they limped past Mercer, 24-10.

LSU - OC Matt Canada was supposed to be a savior. Instead, the Tigers are averaging 0.60 ypp less than they did a year ago despite playing only one conference game. Outplayed from start to finish last week at Mississippi State.

Ole Miss - Considering what they've gone through this past offseason, 2-1 isn't all that bad. But 0-3 ATS and failed to score in the second half of last week's 27-16 loss at Cal. After a bye week, the nightmare begins: at Alabama, at Auburn, vs. Vanderbilt, and vs. LSU the next four weeks.

Texas A&M - Trailing 21-14 at halftime, the Aggies saved a little bit of face by outscoring UL-Lafayette 31-0 in the second half en route to a "easy" win but perhaps fortunate cover (-24). Despite playing a horrific UCLA defense, Nicholls State, and UL-Lafayette, A&M has been outgained 5.64 ypp to 5.38 ypp. Yikes.

The ugly...

Missouri - Dumpster fire in waiting. Tigers' "vaunted" offense managed only 16 combined points in back-to-back ugly losses to South Carolina (who just lost at home to Kentucky) and upstart Purdue. Looks as if all it takes is a couple of film sessions to figure out how to stop this offense.

Arkansas - Downgraded to "ugly" after managing only 267 yards vs. TCU. The Horned Frogs allowed 463 yards at nearly 7 yards per clip in last week's non-pointspread covering win over SMU.
