2017 SEC Football Title Odds

With the 2017 College Football Season just around the corner, the nation’s strongest conference, the Southeastern Conference will provide plenty of drama and theatrics for audiences across America. Once again in 2016, the Alabama Crimson Tide cruised to another SEC championship as they went undefeated in the regular season in route to an eventual loss in the National Championship Game against Clemson. Alabama is favored heavily to retain the SEC title in 2017. Here is our analysis of the top favorites to win, along with the top play for the SEC dark horse. The betting odds to win the SEC this season have been provided by BetOnline.

TOP FAVORITES

ALABAMA -175 - The Crimson Tide are without question the gold standard of college football. Alabama dominates the toughest conference in all of America and makes it look easy while doing so. While the Tide may have fallen to Clemson in the National Championship Game, they have not lost a SEC game since September of 2015 where they were upset in shocking fashion by the Ole Miss Rebels. With the Tide simply having their way in the Southeastern Conference, it is very difficult to go against them. The question is whether the juice is worth the squeeze here? AUBURN +600 - The arch rival of Alabama checks in as the second favorite to win the SEC. However, Auburn has a great tendency to be overvalued. This year’s edition of the Tigers is a candidate that some analysts fear could be one of the most overrated teams in college football history with their initial prognostication. The SEC West as a whole is quite rugged and the only way to Atlanta is through Alabama. Auburn may have great difficulty dispelling the Tide in the Iron Bowl as their last triumph was achieved through the most absurd of means imaginable, keyword: Chris Davis. LSU +625 - The other Tigers of the West have been a consistent pest for Alabama to deal with. Louisiana State has consistently taken it to Alabama even if they came up short in the end. Though the Tigers shuffled the deck with a coaching change mid-season in 2016, the Tigers managed to finish strong even with their best runner Leonard Fournette battling injuries all-season long. Very simply, the Tigers employ what many like to call a “next man up” approach toward the game. With this being said LSU’s defense remains one of the most ferocious in the country on a regular basis and that makes them a contender on an annual basis.

TOP DARK HORSE:

FLORIDA +900 - The Gators acquiring the services of Malik Zaire in the off-season may afford the Orange and Blue the chance to finally ascend to the next level. The Gators have made two consecutive SEC Championship Game appearances, both of which required Florida to face Alabama. Despite the Gators being heavy underdogs against the Tide, Florida had found ways to make it interesting in both meetings. Like LSU, the Gators are anchored by their defensive play but the addition of Zaire could make them more balanced on both of sides of the ball. The Gators are a team that can steal the SEC show.
