SEC football betting odds for 2017 find Alabama, again, as the team best-positioned within the conference to claim a national championship.
The 2016 college football season has not been completed for even a day, but it is never too early to look forward to what might, and could, be when September arrives. That special time of year when all 14 SEC football teams commence playing for the same thing: the College Football Playoff National Championship.
In non-surprising news, Alabama is the overall favorite to bring the trophy back to Tuscaloosa, this despite Monday night’s heartbreaking, 35-31 loss to Clemson. A last-second touchdown by the Tigers kept the Crimson Tide from back-to-back national championships, and a shot at a three-peat heading into next season.
The road to a trophy won’t prove easy for Nick Saban’s team, as divisional rivals LSU (14/1) and Auburn (35/1) follow. Both will have their eyes on stopping the Crimson Tide’s three-year run as conference champions.
Georgia, who returns star running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, along with quarterback Jacob Eason, are the top picks out of the East division, coming in at 45/1 odds, while two-time defending SEC East champion Florida and Tennessee, who must replace quarterback Joshua Dobbs, are both listed at 55/1.
Here are the complete odds for all SEC teams to bring home the 2017 title in college football.*
