NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Alabama vs Georgia

[caption id="attachment_305995" align="alignnone" width="1200"] Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports[/caption] The SEC Championship has a new time slot this year. Traditionally an afternoon game, which is dumb, the SEC title game will now kick off in primetime with an 8 p.m start time on Saturday, December 18. The game will be played in Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and will be televised on CBS. Now let's talk about the odds we see Kentucky in that game. They're not great, although Kentucky has the fifth-best current odds to win the championship.  Right now a $100 bet on the Cats to win the SEC Championship will pay $10,000. That same bet on Alabama will earn you $30.77. The odds:

Alabama -325 Georgia +300 Florida +400 Texas A&M +1800 Kentucky +10000 Missouri +15000 Arkansas +25000 Auburn +25000 LSU +25000 South Carolina +25000 Tennessee +25000 Mississippi State +75000 Mississippi +100000 Vanderbilt +100000

Night time SEC Championship will be fun, especially now that we know UK-UCLA is earlier that same day.
