Every week, Vegas bettors update their lines and their betting favorites, and that is compiled by ESPN’s Phil Steele.
Then, Steele releases a “Bettors Top 25” list of college football teams, and it’s usually somewhat different than that week’s AP Poll.
As you can see below, heading into Week 3 of the season, six SEC teams crack the Vegas top 25, with Alabama and Georgia in the top two spots:
- No. 1 — Alabama
- No. 2 — Georgia
- No. 6 — Auburn
- No. 12 — Mississippi State
- No. 15 — LSU
- No. 20 — Texas A&M
Most of those teams face big games this weekend, so they’ll have to show their strength to retain their rankings.
For now, though, it’s clear — Vegas loves the SEC.
