Go With The Flow: Key trends to know before betting on the top SEC games of the weekend
Vanderbilt at Kentucky (-17.5)
The Commodores have been a bit of a “live dog” on the road as of late. Vanderbilt is just 5-15 straight up in its last 20 games away from home, but the Commodores are 12-7-1 against the spread during that stretch.
On the other hand, Kentucky is 11-9 against the spread in its last 20 games at home. The Wildcats are 9-11 against the spread in their last 20 games when favored by 14 or more points.
Arkansas at Florida (-17)
The Razorbacks have been on quite a run under first-year coach Sam Pittman. Arkansas is undefeated at 6-0 against the spread thus far this season.
Pittman, of course, won’t coach at Florida Saturday night after testing positive for the coronavirus.
On the other side, Florida is 14-8-1 against the spread as a favorite under coach Dan Mullen.
The Gators are also 1-1 straight up the week after the Georgia game under Mullen. Florida won 56-0 vs. Vanderbilt last season, but lost 38-17 vs. Missouri in 2018 as a six-point home favorite.
South Carolina at Ole Miss (-13)
Ole Miss won and covered in its only game as a favorite earlier this season when it beat Vanderbilt 54-12 in Nashville. The Rebels are 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 as favorites.
Ole Miss is 1-2 against the spread at home thus far this season — covering a 24-point number in a loss to Alabama, but failing to cover in losses to Auburn and Florida.
Conversely, South Carolina is 2-2 against the spread as an underdog this season and 4-6-1 in their last 11 when getting points (Spreads and trend data courtesy of OddShark).
