Vegas sports book has – wait for it – Alabama as favorite to win the SEC in 2017


The Golden Nugget Race and Sports Book’s pick to win the 2017 SEC title? And no surprise, it’s Alabama.

The odds, in order:

Alabama: 2/3
LSU: 5/1
Auburn: 8/1
Florida: 8/1
Georgia: 9/1
Tennessee: 12/1
Texas A&M: 40/1
Arkansas: 50/1
Mississippi State: 50/1
Kentucky: 80/1
South Carolina: 80/1
Ole Miss: 80/1
Vanderbilt: 150/1
Missouri: 150/1

The last team not named Alabama to win the SEC championship was Auburn in 2013. No SEC East team has won the title since Tim Tebow-led Florida in 2008.

Going by the Golden Nugget’s odds, LSU will finish second in the West and Florida will win the East. In addition, Ole Miss will finish last in the West.
