It’s goosebump time.

We’re barreling into week five of SEC football with Ole Miss and Alabama plus Arkansas and Georgia facing off in two top 15 showdowns.

The staff here at Red Cup is probably fixing to make you rich. All you gotta do is figure out which one of us is making the right picks. Easy, right?

Honestly, ya boi OMTB is pulling in a No. 11 ranking against the spread, so you may want to take a gander at my picks before anyone else’s.

So here’s your map for stacking bands, follow along Saturday, and the graphic will update with winners and losers.

Ok, throw a three game parlay on Texas A&M, South Carolina and Florida to win - those seem to be locks according to our staff. If nothing else, you might make a little cash to put toward one of the future weeks of football.

Honestly the staff is split on the Ole Miss-Bama game, but the common theme is the Rebels keeping it closer than the -14.5 spread. For what it’s worth, the Tide topped Ole Miss by 15 points last season in Oxford.

Georgia is a little more of a favorite pick over Arkansas, and honestly, no one expected this to be a huge game before the season started. The Hogs have played pretty solid football, but this is CLEARLY its biggest test to date.

Vanderbilt losing to UConn would truly be tough to see in my opinion as the Huskies have been statistically one of the worst teams in college football for awhile now. Our staff can’t seem to agree on this one or the LSU/Auburn or Tennessee/Mizzou — maybe just stay away or bet with the best winning percentage leaders for the season (OMTB and Ruby).

Aight, that’s it for this week, what games do you see as absolute locks? Leave it in the comments!
