2023 SEC football win total odds released
DraftKings has released SEC win total odds for the 2023 season, and it’s no surprise that Georgia has the highest over-under in the league.
The Bulldogs have a win total of 11.5 and are one of two teams in the SEC with a number higher than 10.
It’s also no surprise that the other SEC team with a win total over 10 is Alabama at 10.5. Georgia and Alabama have combined to win the past three national titles, with the Bulldogs winning the last two.
Tennessee and LSU are next up, both at 9.5. LSU faced Georgia in last year’s SEC title game, falling to the Bulldogs, before blasting Purdue in the Citrus Bowl.
The Volunteers had a great season in 2022, including ending the year with a win over Clemson in the Orange Bowl.
Here is the full list of win total odds for the SEC:
Win total odds for SEC teams in 2023
Georgia Bulldogs — 11.5
Alabama Crimson Tide — 10.5
Tennessee Volunteers — 9.5
LSU Tigers — 9.5
Ole Miss Rebels — 7.5
Arkansas Razorbacks — 7.5
Texas A&M Aggies — 7.5
South Carolina Gamecocks — 6.5
Kentucky Wildcats — 6.5
Missouri Tigers — 6.5
Mississippi State Bulldogs — 6.5
Auburn Tigers — 6.5
Florida Gators — 5.5
Vanderbilt Commodores — 3.5
Vanderbilt has far-and-away the lowest win total among SEC teams at 3.5, a full two games below any other team in the league.
In a bit of a surprise, Florida has the second-lowest win total at 5.5 and is the only other SEC team with a win total under 6.
The Gators went 6-7 in Billy Napier’s first year as the head coach in 2022.
There are five teams with a win total of 6.5 in South Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi State and Auburn.
Greg McElroy explains why the SEC appears wide open entering 2023 season
While DraftKings has Georgia and Alabama at the top, former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy believes the league is wide open.
McElroy recently joined On3’s J.D. PicKell on The Hard Count and broke down the lay of the land in the SEC.
“Well, I mean not mentioned there is LSU who’s going into year two under Brian Kelly, a team that really over achieved last year,” McElroy said when PicKell mentioned contenders. “I think the sky’s the limit, right? I mean, you should feel very excited around Baton Rouge about what comes back and, and understanding that even though some of the guys that depart the program are ultimately going to hurt the program, because of their departure. So I think LSU is a team that’s on the rise. And if you look at it, just tell me how many teams right now in the SEC don’t feel like the arrow is pointing up? Because there’s not many.”
McElroy practically mentioned the entire conference as a team with an arrow pointing up.
“I think if you go across the board,” McElroy said. “Vanderbilt arrow pointing up … Vanderbilt is better under Clark Lea than they were under Derrick Mason at the end of his tenure. Kentucky right now pointing up. Tennessee, arrow feels like it’s pointing up. South Carolina, arrow feels like it’s pointing up. Florida would be one where you’re like ‘I’m not really sure right now.’ But last year after you get dragged by four touchdowns against Oregon State, not sure you can go any lower than that. Now the schedule is tough this year. And ultimately you might have to go down just a little bit before you start to ramp up. But that’s all part of the natural process of building a program at the foundational level and can’t get any worse than they were last year.”
