Expected Win Total Machine: Week 2

Leading the conversation at church yesterday morning: “Uh oh, Florida’s good again!” And while we don’t have to solve that problem this week, it does go in the math of this week’s expected win total machine.

Will the Gators be the week’s biggest mover among our opinions of Tennessee’s opponents? I felt like LSU was the least predictable game on the schedule going in, and I’m still not exactly sure what to expect from those guys…but I feel better about Tennessee’s chances. I’m curious to see how Georgia’s performance impacts our percentages there as well. Meanwhile, I’d imagine we’re feeling a little better about Pitt, South Carolina, maybe Kentucky, maybe others…

The number won’t improve much by itself by beating Ball State. Where I’ll really be curious is to come back next week, if the Vols beat Pitt, and see if we’re up past 8.5 wins.

But first, how are we feeling about Pitt, and the rest? Enter your probabilities below, and we’ll tally it up later this week:

Lots of games that I think of as toss-ups at this point. Florida likely came off looking a lot better than they really are tbh.

After surprise quarterback play by Florida / Vandy and some softness on Vol defense… win total comes down. Optimism has now swung toward some realism. Go Vols!
