Sports handicapper says UK would be favored over Auburn right now

Auburn opened the college football season as the sixth-ranked team in the AP poll, with aspirations of an SEC Championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff. Then they began playing football and that optimism vanished as the Tigers blew a large lead to Louisville, narrowly escaped Jacksonville State at home, and then lost its first two SEC games. Auburn is very lucky to be 2-2 right now.

Danny Sheridan, a sports handicapper and analyst for USA Today, made a guest appearance on Paul Finebaum today and said he sees Auburn losing three more games, at least. And if things don’t improve, he believes Kentucky will be favored in the Thursday night game in Lexington in two weeks.

“Right now, they would be an underdog versus Kentucky,” Sheridan told Finebaum.

If you had told me before the season that there was any chance UK would be favored over Auburn, I would’ve had a very hard time believing you. That was one of two games (along with Georgia) we had in the ‘definite loss’ column.

But I didn’t have Kentucky at 3-1 and Auburn at an ugly 2-2 through four games, either.

So who’s up for traveling to Mississippi State with a 5-1 record?

    Let’s win ’em before we brag about ’em this time. Getting ahead of ourselves didn’t turn out so well last year.

    Why doesn’t it come up that Ryan said “f%$ked up” on the air at 3:15 on hour 2 of 9.30.15.

      Because he didn’t. He said “that was fun though.”

    Beat Eastern first and win big, let both Quarterbacks get on the field and with a 33 to 7 victory then i might start thinking about beating Auburn.

    We have the easiest schedule in the SEC. Ten wins should have been more than attainable.

      Shouldn’t you be worried about another high octane ACC opponent to help your team pad the L column of their awesome 1-3 record? Talk about sucking!

    Must be the Muschump effect. Their defense is last in the SEC since he took over. At this point, I’m not sure if Florida’s downfall can be blamed on Joker or on Muschamp. Maybe some unholy combination of both – wish they were still with the gaytors.

    Win Saturday handily and rock the house for Auburn on Thursday night. I think we can take them at home although I don’t know about us being favorites in that game. I still say @MSU is a BIG long shot. Those cowbells give you a headache and they play well at home. Still, one game at a time…go cats.
