SEC Championship Odds: Who is favored to win the 2022 SEC Championship?
The 2022 SEC Championship Game is set to take place in Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. The SEC Championship Game is one of the biggest football games every year representing the winners of the Southeastern Conference’s east and west divisions.
The SEC was the first conference in college football to hold a conference championship game. The first SEC Championship Game was in 1992 where the Alabama Crimson Tide knocked off the Florida Gators by a score of 28-21. The first two games took place at Legion Field. Between 1994 and 2016, the SEC Championship Game took place annually at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga. Since the 2017 game, the game has taken place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga.
The SEC Championship Game is typically one of the most watched college football games each year. In 2021, the SEC Championship drew 15.3 million viewers for CBS. That was the second most-watched college football game of the season, only behind the Michigan-Ohio State game which drew 15.89 million viewers.
While other conferences have joined the party and have conference championship games, the other games have frequently failed to match the SEC Championship Game in terms of brand power, interest, attendance and television ratings. Simply put, the SEC Championship Game is consistently one of the most watched and most important games in the nation each season.
SEC Championship Odds: How to read them
New to betting? Here’s how you can understand and read the odds you see on this page. If a team has odds listed at -150 to win the SEC Championship, this means that you must bet $150 on this team to win $100. Typically for a championship game, few teams have a negative number for their odds. As only one team in the field can win, most teams will have a plus number listed.
If a team has a plus number, say +800, this means that if you bet $100 on this team to win, you would win $800 as a result. Long shot teams might have significant positive numbers, such as +10000 or more. While you could win a significant amount of money should that team win, of course, this outcome is unlikely (as reflected in the odds).
