Can Alabama Be Stopped In SEC?

For the better part of a decade, Alabama has been the team to fear in the SEC and has appeared in five of seven College Football Playoffs, winning three national championship titles in that time. Not only are the Crimson Tide the favorites in SEC championship odds at -160, but they are also the top team on the oddsboard to win the national title.

Alabama is led by quarterback Bryce Young, who is second in the odds to win the Heisman Trophy. Young is entering his first season as the starting QB for Alabama and expectations are incredibly high for the young signal-caller. 

According to CBS Sports, the Crimson Tide are right in the middle of the pack in terms of strength of schedule in the SEC. Alabama begins the season with a tough non-conference matchup against a talented Miami Hurricanes team.

Other notable games include road contests at Florida, Texas A&M and Auburn. They also have a big midseason matchup at home against the rival LSU Tigers.

The road will not be easy this year, but Alabama could be well on its way to winning yet another SEC title, and potentially back-to-back national championships. 

Can Georgia Knock Off Alabama?

It’s tough to bet against Alabama, but the Georgia Bulldogs at +200 odds certainly have a chance to beat the Tide for the SEC title.

Quarterback JT Daniels is returning for the Bulldogs in 2021. Daniels currently sits fourth in the Heisman odds, just two spots behind Bryce Young, and could be a sleeper to take home the award. In terms of weapons, Daniels will hopefully have WR George Pickens back from injury, along with RB Zamir White in the backfield.

According to CBS Sports, the Bulldogs have the third-easiest schedule in the SEC.

Besides a tremendously difficult matchup in Week 1 against the third-ranked Clemson Tigers, the Bulldogs’ schedule is smooth sailing from there. Their non-conference games include matchups with UAB, Charleston Southern and Georgia Tech. In conference, they have some tough games on the road against Auburn and Florida, but those are games in which the Bulldogs will be favored. The big win for the Bulldogs is that they do not have Alabama on their schedule. 

The first and only meeting of the season between those teams could very well be in the SEC championship game.

To answer the question of whether Georgia can knock off the Crimson Tide ... The answer is yes. This Bulldogs team is talented on both sides of the ball. They have great weapons on offence and they have a defense that is going to cause a lot of problems for opposing offences.

Understanding SEC Championship Odds

When it comes to college football, the SEC is a powerhouse with some of the top schools in the Division 1 landscape. When you check out your NCAAF sportsbook of choice, you’ll see futures odds laid out like so:

Alabama Crimson Tide -160

Georgia Bulldogs +200

The Crimson Tide are the favorites. You can tell this by the minus sign (-). The other teams are underdogs. You can see this because of the plus sign (+). When there is no clear fave (lack of minus sign), the squad with the lowest odds would be it.

If you like Alabama and place a $100 bet on the Crimson Tide, you’d get a payout of $162.50 if they won – your original $100 is returned coupled with your winnings of $62.50. If you think Georgia will knock off Alabama, that same $100 would give you $300 – your original money is returned along with your prize of $200.

A bet on the Bulldogs is riskier, which is why the wager would come with a bigger reward. But you shouldn’t bet on dogs blindly. Do your research before making a bet to ensure that your bet isn’t a long shot.

What Is A Futures Bet On SEC Championship Odds?

If you were to bet on a school’s odds to win the SEC championship, you’d be making a futures bet. This is a bet made on events that have yet to happen. Sure, all sports betting is on stuff that hasn’t happened yet; however, with futures, you can bet weeks or even months in advance. As soon as the odds are announced, you can bet. If you see odds you like in July, take them because oddsmakers adjust the lines as the college football season unfolds.
