No. 2 Tennessee (8-0, 7-1 ATS) at No. 1 Georgia (8-0, 4-4 ATS)

Moneyline: Tennessee +240, Georgia -305

Spread: Georgia -8.5

Total: 66.0

The pair of unbeaten titans will clash on Saturday in a bout that will almost assuredly determine the winner of the SEC East. Given these two teams are in the same division of the SEC, there’s no chance we’ll get to see them again in the SEC Championship Game in December. That makes a one-loss Alabama team lucky it could have the chance to avenge it’s defeat to Tennessee or have a shot to take down a potentially unbeaten Georgia team in the hopes of getting back into the College Football Playoff mix.

Georgia has the biggest edge in this game beyond just being the home team. The Bulldogs offense ranks second in total yards and eight in passing yards and will face a Vols defense that ranks 81st in total yards allowed and 127th in passing yards allowed. Those factors make the large spread understandable.

But there’s something enticing about getting more than a touchdown with Heisman favorite Hendon Hooker. Tennessee’s offense is a juggernaut (1st in total yards and 1st in scoring) that not even Alabama was able to slow down. All it takes is one timely takeaway or a few fortuitous bounces to not just cover, but to win outright.

My lean is with Tennessee getting the points, especially given Georgia is just 4-4 ATS, but it’s also easy to sell yourself on the defending champs.

No. 6 Alabama (7-1, 5-3 ATS) at No. 15 LSU (6-2, 5-3 ATS)

Moneyline: Alabama -530, LSU +385

Spread: Alabama -13.0

Total: 58.0

We’ve already seen LSU blown out at home once, and so it’s not inconceivable for it to happen again. Alabama has won four of the last five meetings between the two teams but LSU has a 3-2 edge ATS.

The Crimson Tide are coming off their bye week having most recently dominated Mississippi St., 30-6 back on Oct. 22. LSU has been impressive since its ugly home loss to Tennessee with a 10-point road win against Florida and a dominant 45-20 beatdown against Ole Miss at home last Saturday.

Alabama has small edges everywhere but nothing significant as LSU is a more than capable team on both sides of the football with an offense and defense that each rank 28th in scoring. A home team getting nearly two touchdowns is hard to pass up, but then again, it’s an Alabama team on a warpath to get back into the CFP conversation.

No. 20 Wake Forest (6-2, 6-2 ATS) at No. 21 N.C. State (6-2, 2-6 ATS)

Moneyline: Wake Forest -200, N.C. State +165

Spread: Wake Forest -4.5

Total: 54.0

N.C. State has lost five straight games ATS, including last week where the Wolfpack narrowly edged Virginia Tech despite being a 12-point favorite. Recent results haven’t been much kinder to the Demon Deacons as they just got thumped last weekend in a 48-21 loss to Louisville as three-point favorites.

Wake Forest is 4-1 (and 4-1 ATS) in the last five meetings between these two teams. Four of those five meetings have been decided six points or less. The last two have had the exact same score of 45-42 with each team winning one.

It’s an evenly matched game on paper with Wake Forest’s 13th-ranked scoring offense against N.C. State’s 13th-ranked scoring defense. The Deacons 72nd-ranked scoring defense will face the Wolfpack’s 82nd-ranked scoring offense.
