SEC Week 4 Picks: Straight up and against the spread

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s week one of conference play for the Tennessee Volunteers, which can only mean one thing. It’s time for the Florida matchup. The Vols will head south on Saturday night to The Swamp, where Josh Heupel will get his first taste of SEC football as a head coach.

The Gators opened as 21 point favorites over the Vols, but that number has come all the way down to 18 points. It’s an interesting spot for Florida, just seven days removed from a gut-wrenching loss to Alabama. How will they respond? Three out of four staff members believe Tennessee covers.

Elsewhere in conference, Texas A&M and Arkansas will meet in Arlington for a really interesting matchup. Can Arkansas get started in conference play with another big win? Are the Aggies for real?

LSU-Mississippi State is another good game, with LSU trying to get revenge for last year. Can Mike Leach do it again to Coach O?

The picks are in, and you can find out straight up and against the spread winners below.
