Get that paper!

After a crazy weekend that saw seven ranked teams fall, (and less than a month removed from three Top 10 teams losing,) it looks like the house is still trying to get a handle on some of these squads. As a result, there’s good value to be had in here.

As always, Tide opponents and SEC teams are in bold.

Starting this week, I’m also going to pick 7 or 8 games a week. I’ll mark favorites I picked with an asterisk (*), while the underdogs I like will be marked with a dollar sign ($). Finally, I’ll toss in a pick of the week for fun and it will have a big ‘ole happy face : )
