Sure, it is May and a long summer awaits before our favorite college football team puts on the pads for fall camp. But for fans across the SEC football scene, it is never too early to debate whether their squad is overlooked and other fans to tell them they are overrated.
Let the arguments begin, as CG Technology, a Las Vegas sportsbook operator, released its first over/under on wins for multiple teams.
As figured, the Alabama Crimson Tide are atop the conference at an over/under of 10.5 wins on the season. That seems like a good bet, as the last time Nick Saban’s team had 10 wins or fewer in a season was 2010, when it went 10-3.
SEC West rivals in LSU (9) and Auburn (8) follow Alabama. There is a buzz surrounding both sets of Tigers,. New offensive coordinator Matt Canada expects to open up the Bayou Bengals attack. On the Plains, transfer quarterback Jarrett Stidham brings newfound energy to Gus Malzahn’s team.
In the SEC East, rivals Florida and Georgia enter at an over/under of 8. The Gators will try to win the division for the third consecutive year. A loaded backfield with the return of running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel has Bulldogs fans dreaming of a big season.
Here is a complete list of over/under numbers for SEC teams:
Alabama — 10.5
LSU — 9
Auburn — 8
Florida — 8
Georgia — 8
Tennessee — 7.5
Texas A&M — 7
