The slate for week one of SEC football is packed with potential blowouts, but there are a few nuggets of goodness sprinkled into this buffet of the best football in the country.

Red Cup has again partnered with the very excellent folks at TallySight to give you our picks every week of this season. This year we’ll be picking every game involving an SEC team all season long on the moneyline and the spread.

Quick tutorial if you’re new to gambling and have lots of cash most likely because you’re new to gambling - the moneyline is picking the winner of the game, and the spread is the margin of victory. So, for example, if you bet $1,000 on Alabama -1000 on the moneyline, you have the opportunity to win $100 if the Tide wins.

We’ve upped the ante this season, and the winner in each category with the highest win percentage will get a free lunch from yaboi One Man to Beat at an Oxford restaurant of their choosing. The lowest percentage winner will be forced to watch emotional speeches by Houston Nutt once a week to coach themselves up for next season.

Pull up this graphic at your nearest ATM, get out thousands of dollars and hurry to your nearest sportsbook — there’s some absolute LOCKS this week and plenty of free money to make.

So it’s Ole Miss across the dadgum board except for Zach Berry picking the Cards to beat the spread. La Tech Bulldogs even getting some love from the staff in what would be a pretty shocking upset if it happens in week one against Mississippi State.

We’ll have an update of the standings and more picks coming next week. Which game is your lock of the week?
