Alabama listed as heavy favorite to win the SEC after beating LSU
If you trust some handicappers, Alabama has already won the SEC.
The Crimson Tide were listed as overwhelming 14:25 favorites to win the SEC by Sportsbook.ag. The second team listed, Florida, was given 9:5 odds to win the conference. LSU followed the Gators with 9:1 odds to win the conference, and Ole Miss was next at 10:1 odds.
To put that into a monetary perspective: You would have to bet $180 to win $100 if you picked Alabama to win the conference, but you would win $180 if you placed $100 on the Gators.
Florida has already punched its ticket to the SEC Championship game in Atlanta after clinching the SEC East with Saturday’s 9-7 victory over Vanderbilt. The SEC West has yet to be won, but Alabama is in the driver’s seat after beating LSU 30-16.
Either LSU or Ole Miss could go to Atlanta if it wins out and the Crimson Tide lose to Mississippi State or Auburn. The Tigers and Rebels play a de facto knockout game in Oxford, Miss., next weekend.
Arkansas and Mississippi State are still listed on the board, but both have extraordinarily slim odds of reaching the title game (300:1).
