Midweek Games (3/4-5)

Another action-packed day leaves me little time for this. Again, abbreviated picks for this week's midweek games. 3 really good games, 2 really bad ones, and 1 mildly-entertaining one. I'll let you do the math.

Arkansas @ Ole Miss

Ole Miss needs to win out to get back on the inside of the bubble. They'll pick up an RPI-boosting win tonight.

Kentucky @ South Carolina

UK played a great game Sunday, almost knocking off then #1 UT. Can't see them duplicating that effort again tomorrow night without Patterson. USC wins Odom's (regular season) home finale.

Georgia @ Auburn
If your senior captain can't keep his cool on the road, you don't stand much of chance. Sundiata Gaines' little tantrum Sunday was classless. AU wins tomorrow night.

Alabama @ LSU
Who wants to finish last in the West? Please step backward. A suddenly streaking LSU wins easily.

Mississippi State @ Vanderbilt
This is a tough matchup for the 'Dores, but until someone knocks them off at home, I can't pick it, particularly on Senior Day. VU squeaks by.

Tennessee @ Florida
Florida struggled to beat UT when the '04s were winning national titles. Although this may get them back on the right side of the bubble, I see an Orange victory.
