This week?  Well, it ain't last week.  Here's what's going on in our community pick 'em trends:

  • A question I've seen several places this week:  what percentage chance do you give the Vols against Alabama?  16.4% of our readers are taking the Vols, which is in line with a majority of the answers I've seen to that question.
  • 57.4% are taking UCLA at home tonight against #20 California
  • 75.5% roll with Arkansas at home against Auburn, in a game that could matter for the Vols if we eventually get down to the very last tiebreaker in the SEC East.
  • 83.5% roll with David Cutcliffe in Blacksburg.
  • Biggest difference from Vegas this week is perhaps in Nashville, as 87.2% of our readers take Missouri on the road at Vandy.
  • If not, it's in Oxford in the closest pick of the week:  54.7% take Texas A&M on the road at Ole Miss in another outcome which would be favorable to the Vols several weeks and several tiebreaker scenarios from now.
