Hello everyone and welcome back to another Krystal Ball. Last week was a little better going
5-2. Another week another set of games in the SEC so let's get right to it.
LSU at Kentucky- (4:00 SEC Network)- As the title suggests, just when it seemed UK had it finally figured out they took about 10 steps back in the second half against Alabama. And if you are curious I used the Number 10 for a reason.
Anyway after the loss to 'Bama the Cats can't lose any more at home and can't afford any more bad losses on the road. Enter LSU who did pick up their first SEC win of the year by beating wait for it, Texas A&M last night.
Hopefully the Cats come out hungry and can take this one easily before heading off to in my opinion the biggest week of the season.
Krystal Ball Says- Kentucky 78-62
Arkansas at South Carolina- (1:30 SEC Network)- I have picked the Gamecocks the last two weeks and they have lost both. I have to pick Arkansas who looked very impressive drilling Mississippi State.
Krystal Ball Says- Arkansas 80-70
Alabama at Tennessee- (2:00 ESPN2)- Didn't these teams just play last week?? Tennessee plays at Ole Miss tonight which means they will have a quick turnaround for this one.
The Tide seem to be playing really well right now and I am going to pick them to win here.
Krystal Ball Says- Alabama 65-62
Vanderbilt at Missouri- (5:00 ESPNU)- It hasn't been the best week for the Tigers with the NCAA seemingly ready to give Frank Haith an official inquiry, but they must get their own ship right first. Plus they had to rally to beat a bad South Carolina team.
Anyway Vandy is not very good and I think the Tigers win.
Krystal Ball Says- Missouri 75-64
Georgia at Texas A&M- (6:00 Fox Sports)- The Aggies haven't won since Elston Turner beat Kentucky two weeks ago. Lucky for them the Bulldogs are pretty bad.
Krystal Ball Says- Texas A&M 68-60
Ole MIss at Auburn- (8:00 Fox Sports)- The Rebels should come into this one on a high after being Tennessee tonight. Andy Kennedy's club has Kentucky on Tuesday and if they are looking ahead the Tigers could surprise them. I don't see it happening though.
Krystal Ball Says- Ole MIss 78-69
Florida at Mississippi State- (8:00 ESPN2)- The Gators right now with Ole Miss seem to be the class of the SEC. The Bulldogs are horrible and Florida should win easily.
Krystal Ball Says- Florida 80-64
Nationally probably the two biggest games at Maryland and Duke and Louisville and Georgetown. Thanks for reading, see you in 7.
