2014 SEC Odds To Win
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – There is no conference in all of college football greater than the SEC. Here is a look at the odds to win the SEC Championship in 2014.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Alabama is once again the favorite to win the conference, as it has 8/5 odds. Auburn, Georgia and South Carolina all come in with 5/1 odds to win the title.
Alabama came up shy of winning the SEC last season due to a crazy loss to Auburn. Alabama went 11-2 last season overall and 7-1 in the SEC. Alabama has a number of key starters to replace, but the Crimson Tide have always had great recruiting and great coaching from Nick Saban. They will also have Heisman candidate T.J. Yeldon to work with at running back. Alabama has won the SEC title game four times, last doing so in 2012.
Auburn won the SEC title last season under coach Gus Malzahn. The Tigers went 12-2 overall and 7-1 in the SEC. Auburn has a veteran QB in Nick Marshall, but lost Heisman finalist Tre Mason. Auburn has won the SEC title game three times.
Georgia had a disappointing 2013 season, going 8-5 overall and 5-3 in the SEC as the Bulldogs dealt with injuries most of the year. Georgia will be breaking in a new quarterback this season, but they have one of the top running backs in the country in Todd Gurley. Georgia is a two-time winner of the SEC Championship Game, last winning in 2005.
South Carolina went 11-2 last season and 6-2 in the SEC, finishing only behind Missouri in the SEC East. The Gamecocks will have to replace a number of key positions, but the team had a star running back in Mike Davis. South Carolina has never won the SEC Championship Game.
