Time for some SEC football predictions, as I do each week on SportsRadioWNML.com here on my blog, Vince’s View, which is driven by Oak Ridge Nissan.

As I say each year, the point spreads are simply as a gauge of favorites with straight-up winners, not picked against the spread.

2017 SEC Prediction Record: 98-24 (80%)
2018 Week 2 Prediction Record: 10-2
Season Prediction Record: 24-2 (92%)
