WEEK 9 SEC BASEBALL PREDICTIONS

Hard to believe we are down to the next to last SEC series. For the second week in a row, we went 3-3 with a 1-1 tie for the Arkansas-Tennessee series (rain cancellation). We are now 30-17 for the season on our picks. There's a lot of teams that are straddling the fence working to get either in the SEC-T or trying to enhance their chances at an at-large NCAA bid. Wins are a premium thing now. Down the stretch here it's important to be the sweeper rather than the sweepee. Here are our picks for this week.

SERIES DAYS COMMENTS PREDICTION
Auburn at LSU Thurs.-Sat. Auburn has had a nightmarish last four games losing three to their rivals to the west and one to UAB. LSU seems to be turning it up a notch LSU wins 2-1
Florida at Alabama Fri.-Sun. Both these teams had sweeps last week. After the Tide had a Cinderella-like weekend at Auburn last week it's time to get back to scrubbing those floors Florida wins 2-1
Vanderbilt at Arkansas Fri.-Sun. Vandy has kind of owned Arkansas over the past decade or so but this doesn't appear to be a typical VU squad and Arkansas is usually strong a home Hogs win 2-1
Mississippi State at Georgia Fri.-Sun. This is another interesting matchup. UGA won two at Kentucky last week- shocking most everyone. State just won a series at Texas A&M. Take the rejuvenated underdogs at home Georgia wins 2-1
Tennessee at Kentucky Fri.-Sun. This is another hard one to pick. Really though- I can't see UK losing series at home to lower tier teams two weeks in a row but UT will make it interesting Kentucky wins 2-1
Texas A&M at Ole Miss Fri.-Sun. Both teams are coming off disappointing weekends. A&M is still in good shape for postseason while Ole Miss is desperate for some more wins A&M wins 2-1
South Carolina at Missouri Fri.-Sun. This is a battle of two fence straddling win-starved teams. Missouri has lost four straight conference series and USC has lost six. One of the two will be smiling on Sunday afternoon for the first time in a while. Missouri wins 2-1
