Each week, I will be joined a group of writers, bloggers, experts and non-experts alike, to make predictions for every game in the Top 25. Each panelist will give their prediction for the game's outcome, and also the result against-the-spread.
The Weekend Picks Panel returns with the same gang from Week 1, giving you all the explanations behind all of their Expert Picks. Bruce Feldman, Jerry Hinnen, and Tom Fornelli tackle some of the biggest spreads of the year so far, as some teams squeeze in those last "easy wins" before conference play. But not all of the Top 25 has cupcakes this weekend, so tune in to hear how Texas A&M and Missouri will fare in their SEC debuts, and what takeaways from Week 1 are helpful in making your picks for the weekend.
