What will Georgia look like without tight-end Brock Bowers? That is the question after they come off of a bye week, while Florida is 5-2 (though primarily known for losses to Utah and Kentucky). Georgia should take full advantage of that disparate performance by Florida as they average 217 rushing yards per game when losing. In previous meetings between these teams in this SEC East rivalry series, Georgia won by an average margin of 24.5 points each time!
Pick: Georgia 34 Florida 17
Kyle Whittingham has found an effective quarterback in Bryson Barnes, while their defense allowed 6.3 yards per carry against USC last week. If Bo Nix can establish his running game and escape in an epic Pac-12 clash, Oregon may just pull off a road win; Oregon is currently 2-2 S/U at Rice-Eccles Stadium since Utah joined the Pac-12. The line, however, could prove risky given Utah’s strength at home: They were 3-1 against the spread since joining. Utah getting +5.5 is hard to pass on.
Pick: Oregon 33 Utah 30
Louisville is currently an early favorite following a bye week, and that line could sway further if Riley Leonard (ankle) cannot play. Duke will rely heavily on its run game which averages 198.3 yards per game, but only allows 97.1 yards on average on the ground against Louisville; therefore, we can count Duke is not a strong underdog without Leonard as an anchor for success.
Pick: Louisville 27 Duke 17
Tennessee and Kentucky are coming off of disappointing road performances in SEC play against Florida and Alabama, respectively; the Wildcats took advantage of a bye week to regroup after back-to-back losses to Georgia and Missouri respectively. Tennessee routed Kentucky 44-6 last season before beating them 45-42 at Lexington in 2021 – this line has dropped slightly due to Tennessee’s incredible rush defense being such an asset on the road.
Pick: Tennessee 27 Kentucky 21
After their bye week, “Coach Prime” will lead the Buffaloes back into national prominence to the Rose Bowl against UCLA and their defense of only allowing 2.2 yards per carry under D’Anton Lynn, placing further strain on Shedeur Sanders to make plays outside the pocket. Colorado averages 80 yards of penalties per game as well, so in order to match UCLA’s running game successfully, they will need to clean that up, too, if they wish to compete successfully against this formidable foe. Although UCLA is heavily favored, Colorado has proven they can compete successfully as underdogs 2-1 against them with spreads of 20 points or greater against them in three previous contests! UCLA has a lot better coaching than Colorado and will pull away in this game.
Pick: UCLA 44 Colorado 24
