SEC Week 8 opening betting lines released
With another eventful Saturday, it’s getting a bit easier to determine just which teams are surging and which teams are struggling. Now, we know what Las Vegas thinks.
The LSU-Ole Miss game is tough to predict after news broke that Tiger head coach Ed Orgeron had agreed to a separation with LSU. Ole Miss is a 12-point favorite.
Despite its struggles this season, Mississippi State is a 23-point favorite at Vanderbilt. That should tell you something about the Commodores, who lost to South Carolina 21-20 on Saturday.
Tennessee will travel to Alabama as a 29-point underdog despite the fact that the Vols pushed a ranked team, Ole Miss, to the brink on Saturday before losing 31-26. That should tell you something about Alabama’s resurgence after a Week 6 loss to Texas A&M. Bama beat Mississippi State 49-9 on Saturday.
South Carolina, which squeaked by Vandy on Saturday, is a 19-point underdog at Texas A&M.
The Arkansas-Arkansas Pine Bluff game is not on the board.
Here are the lines Circa Sports just released for Week 8 in the SEC:
LSU at Ole Miss (-12)
Mississippi State (-23) at Vanderbilt
Tennessee at Alabama (-29)
South Carolina at Texas A&M (-19)
