Updated over/under odds for every SEC team
Bovada has released updated over/under odds on win totals for every team in the SEC.
South Carolina: 6.5
Judging from these updated numbers, Vegas believes Tennessee should be favored to win the SEC East this upcoming season with somewhere around 10 wins. Georgia comes close behind at 9.5, with defending division champion Florida losing some ground at eight. South Carolina, Missouri, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt all appear to be hit-or-miss for bowl season. These seem fair.
Mississippi State: 9.5
Ole Miss: 9.5
Texas A&M: 8
Here’s where things get interesting. Instead of reigning national champion Alabama, the likely favorite for No. 1 preseason accolades, getting the benefit of the doubt, its over/under has been set at 9.5 wins — tied with Ole Miss and Mississippi State. The Crimson Tide have won 11 regular season games in five straight seasons, but also face a daunting schedule that many are claiming to be one of the most difficult in the nation.
LSU has the best chance at winning 11-plus games during the 2016 regular season, according to Bovada, despite overwhelming uncertainty at the quarterback position. The Bulldogs, even without all-time great quarterback Dak Prescott, have a favorable line. Meanwhile, Arkansas, Auburn, and Texas A&M are all on the fringe of finishing as a sub-par bowl contestant or competing for the division.
