SEC East Division Odds
LAS VEGAS, NV (TheSpread) – The SEC East looks to be a crowded battle at the top. Which team will emerge as the winner in one of the most talented divisions?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Georgia is the slight favorite to win the title, as it has 8/5 odds. Other short odds to win are South Carolina (7/4), Florida (3/1) and Missouri (10/1).
Georgia is a five-time division winner, last claiming the title in 2012. The Bulldogs were 8-5 last season and 5-3 in the SEC. It could have been a stronger year, but the team had many injuries. Georgia will be led by its defense, which has 10 starters back. Offensively, Todd Gurley will lead the unit. He rushed for 989 yards and 10 scores in an injury-shortened season in 2013.
South Carolina has won the SEC East just one time, which was in 2010. The Gamecocks were 11-2 last season and 6-2 in the SEC. South Carolina has 13 starters back this season. It will rely heavily on running back Mike Davis, who rushed for 1,183 yards and 11 scores last year.
Florida is a 10-time division winner, most of any SEC school. Florida last won the SEC East in 2009. The Gators went a very disappointing 4-8 last season and had a 3-5 SEC record. Coach Will Muschamp is very much on the hot seat this year, but has just three starters back on offense. Florida will rely on its defense, which has seven starters back.
Missouri won the SEC East for the first time in 2013. It has been in the SEC for just two seasons. The Tigers were 12-2 last season and 7-1 in the SEC. Missouri only returns eight starters this season. Maty Mauk will lead the offense. He threw for 1,071 yards and 11 scores in limited action last season.
