SEC Riverboat Gambling

Before we get to your weekly vice advice, I wanted to let you know that we are not sure what is going on with the baby this morning. Liz was unknowingly exposed to the Parvo Virus, which can seriously harm an unborn, causing miscarriage or severe development problems.

We are planning on a O.B. visit this morning at some point.

We just ask that you pray for Liz and the baby, and that both are unscathed.

Thank you for your continued support with thoughts and prayers

Without further delay, I give you this week's pretty worthless picks (there are a bunch of "trap lines" because of the beating Vegas has been taking in College Football this year):
  • Florida International at Arkansas (-39 1/2) (1 p.m. CT)
  • Ole Miss at (#22) Auburn (-17) (5 p.m. CT)
  • (#11) Florida vs. (#18) Georgia (+8 1/2) (3:30 p.m. ET / CBS)
  • Mississippi State at (#14) Kentucky (-13 1/2) (12:30 p.m. ET / LFS)
  • (#16) South Carolina at Tennessee (-3) (7:45 p.m. ET / ESPN)
  • Miami (Ohio) at Vanderbilt (-14) (1 p.m. CT)

OPEN: (#24) Alabama, (#3) LSU

-Arkansas getting 39 1/2 over Springdale High School is a little large for the margin of victory the Hogs are getting this season on out of conference opponents. Sorry, the Razorbacks don't cover in a solid victory, 38-6.

-Ole Miss always seems to give Auburn a game, even on The Plains. The Tigers return from Baton Rouge with a loss in a physical ball game. They'll be fired up enough to win though, but covering may be too much to ask. Tigers win, 24-17.

-The Cocktail Party is always fun to watch. I like the Gators to cover on a neutral field, as opposed to Athens. Gators cover, 45-17.

-I think the Bulldog defense has their worst match up of the year against this Wildcat offense. It won't be pretty in Lexington. Kentucky rolls 52-14.

-Spurrier in Knoxville is always a circus; and why is the unfacile Volunteer defense favored to do anything against the 'Cock and Fire'*? Whatever. I think the Gamecocks have a win left in the tank on the road. Cocks win, 35-27.

-Vanderbilt by two touchdowns.....NOT so fast, my friend. We've seen the 'dores beat a solid SEC opponent on the road only to return home the following week to lose to MTSU. I like Vandy to win, and get that kind of let down off their backs under Bobby J., but I don't think they'll cover. Vanderbilt....closer than the experts think, 27-20.

Just to wrap this up, prayer is not a one way street. Most of you, if not all of you who read this site would likely not be up to sharing your prayer requests via the web. I would like to know what I can be praying for you about. Call, email, or text me with anything, and I'll be praying.

I am definitely praying for Liz and the baby, and for you, as well. I can't imagine what you must be feeling right now.
