We are just over 100 days until the start of the college football season, a great time to potentially place a futures wager on the upcoming season.

If you live near the Kentucky border, all it takes is a quick trip to another state and the DraftKings Sportsbook app to put some coin on the Cats. Oddsmakers have not completely bought into the Liam Coen hype. Kentucky is tied with Tennessee as the fourth choice to win the SEC East for the first time. The Wildcats are 14/1 to play in Atlanta and 50/1 to win the conference championship.

What is surprising is how much the sportsbook believes in Missouri. The Tigers are 5/1 to win the division in Eli Drinkwitz’s second season in Columbia, making the week two matchup at Kroger Field feel even more significant. A look at all of the available SEC futures on DraftKings:

SEC East Winner  

Georgia 5/2
Florida 3/1
Missouri 5/1
Kentucky 14/1
Tennessee 14/1
South Carolina 33/1
Vanderbilt 150/1

SEC Winner

Alabama -110
Georgia 5/2
Texas A&M 7/1
LSU 10/1
Florida 12/1
Auburn 16/1
Missouri 16/1
Ole Miss 25/1
Tennessee 40/1
Kentucky 50/1
Arkansas 100/1
Mississippi State 100/1
South Carolina 150/1
Vanderbilt 500/1

If you prefer to pick a National Champion in May, Alabama is the favorite at +225, followed by Clemson (+300), Ohio State (+400), Georgia (+600) and Oklahoma (+800). As always, wager responsibly.
