College Football SEC Championship Predictions Odds

SEC Championship Winner - Georgia 

The Georgia Bulldogs are the favorite to win the SEC Championship, and for good reason. They’re dominant all over the field and have a great coaching staff led by Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs haven’t struggled much this season and have a relatively easy schedule regarding the SEC.

Georgia Bulldogs -120 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Georgia is 4-0 and bounced back after a relatively shaky performance against the South Carolina Gamecocks one week ago. It took a second-half comeback from the Bulldogs to beat the Gamecocks, and they did this easily. 

They carried this momentum into their Week 4 contest against the UAB Blazers. Georgia should handle the Blazers, as the program isn’t on the same playing field as the back-to-back national champions. 

Carson Beck was strong throughout the game, throwing for 338 yards with three touchdowns. The Bulldogs also ran for 188 yards on 36 team carries. Georgia will travel to Auburn to face the Tigers on Saturday in a 3:30 p.m. ET CBS kickoff. Look for Georgia to dominate in one of their biggest games to date. 

Alabama Crimson Tide +380 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Alabama came through against Ole Miss on Saturday at home. They were a seven-point favorite and didn’t disappoint, winning by 14 points in Tuscaloosa. The defense was the catalyst in the win, holding the Rebels to 301 total yards of offense. 

Jaxson Dart looked uncomfortable throughout the game, and Lane Kiffin had no answer for Nick Saban. The biggest concern coming out of the Ole Miss game for the Tide was Jalen Milroe. Milroe performed better than he did against Texas, but the quarterback still isn’t ready for the big moments. 

Alabama’s quarterback situation is the reason not to take them to win the SEC Championship at +380. Georgia is positioned better at quarterback, making them the heavy favorite. 

LSU Tigers +400 on DraftKings Sportsbook

LSU’s season almost ended on Saturday as they went down to the wire with Arkansas at home. The Tigers lost to Florida State to start the season, and Arkansas would have marked their second defeat in the first half of the season. 

The Tigers made all the plays in high-leverage moments, and Jayden Daniels was again fantastic. The quarterback threw for 320 yards and four touchdowns. Brian Thomas Jr. and Malik Nabers each had 130 receiving yards in the win. 

However, if it weren’t for Arkansas shooting themselves in the foot, this game would have gone to the Razorbacks. This is another reason LSU shifted to third on the odds board behind Alabama. They will face #20 Ole Miss next Saturday on the road. 

Tennessee Volunteers +1800 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Tennessee rose on the odds board because Ole Miss and LSU dropped. The Volunteers need to win out to have a chance at the SEC Championship Game, and this won’t be easy with Alabama and Georgia looming in the distance. 

They will face Alabama in Tuscaloosa, which will be tough for Joe Milton III, a quarterback who struggles on the road. The Volunteers blew out UTSA on Saturday and will host a pesky South Carolina team with nothing to lose on Saturday. 

Texas A&M Aggies +1800 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Texas A&M went from +2000 to +1800 on Saturday following their 27-10 win over Auburn. Texas A&M should be positioned high because they’re now undefeated in the conference. However, things won’t be easy for Jimbo Fisher’s team over the next three weeks. 

They will host Arkansas, a team that nearly beat LSU in Week 4. They will then host Alabama before traveling to Tennessee to face the Volunteers. We don’t recommend betting on Texas A&M to do anything in the SEC, considering they have only been challenged by Miami so far and lost 44-38. 

Florida Gators +3000 on DraftKings Sportsbook

The value with Florida is much higher at +3000 than Texas A&M at +2800. Florida doesn’t have a rich history under Billy Napier at Florida. This is the coach’s second season, and he finished 6-7 last season, losing in the Las Vegas Bowl. 

The Gators are off to a great start at 3-1 and being undervalued in the market. They’re in first place in the SEC East, tied with Georgia. It’s a lot to ask any team to beat the Bulldogs, but the Gators have a favorable schedule.  

They play Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina before #1 Georgia comes to The Swamp on October 28. They finish with Arkansas, LSU, Missouri, and Florida State, which doesn’t impact their SEC standings. If they could pull off the massive upset at home against Georgia, there is no reason to think they can’t win the SEC Championship. 

Ole Miss +3500 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Ole Miss had every opportunity to beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa. They hadn’t done this in nearly a decade, and they dropped the ball repetitively. The Rebels jumped out to an early lead, but the offense went silent and had no answer for Alabama. 

The road doesn’t get easier on Kiffin’s team as they will host #13 LSU next week in a must-win game. The team is already tied for fourth place in the SEC West, so one more loss will be devastating. 

Kentucky Wildcats +4000 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Kentucky is undefeated and tied for first place in the SEC East. This is a rebuilding year for Kentucky following the loss of Will Levis and Chris Rodriguez, but the team has performed well. They haven’t faced any noteworthy competition, so facing Florida at home will be their first challenge. 

Look for Kentucky to struggle in this game and drop in the odds market. If you believe Kentucky has a chance to win the SEC (which we don’t), wait until they host the Gators. 

Missouri Tigers +6000 on DraftKings Sportsbook

Missouri is undefeated, but they haven’t been challenged like Kentucky. They’re one loss away from dropping to the teams with no chance category. Missouri should move to 5-0 once they beat Vanderbilt, but the back half of their schedule is brutal. They need every win they can get early to secure a bowl bid. 

Teams with No Chance

Realistically, only a few teams have a chance to win the SEC every season. Countless teams will be added to the no-chance list, but we’re making the standard for any program with +10000 odds or higher. 

The current teams that qualify are South Carolina, Auburn, Arkansas, Mississippi State, and Vanderbilt. 

How to Place a Futures Bet on the SEC

Future bets are when you wager on an event that isn’t immediately occurring. The process to place an SEC future bet is simple. Go to the sportsbook of your choice and head over to the college football tab.

There should be a conference championship future bets area that will display the SEC teams. The odds will vary from book to book, but the favorites in the conference will always be Georgia, Alabama, and LSU.

Once you’re logged into your sportsbook, you can place the wagers within the conference. There are usually many conference props and total bets you can also take a look at while betting.
