SEC odds

In the final season before the rich get even richer, two teams stand above the rest: Alabama and Georgia. However, LSU and Tennessee spoiled the party last season, with the Tigers winning the vaunted SEC West in Brian Kelly’s first year. Does the nation’s best conference continue their two-party system? Or will we see another team crash the party in 2023? Below, we’ll look at SEC odds for the 2023 college football season.

Included are team-by-team previews, power rankings, players to watch, and more.

Players to watch

LB Harold Perkins: Few players boast the freaky athleticism that Perkins does. As a true freshman, Perkins logged 13 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and four forced fumbles. At 220 pounds as a linebacker, he runs a blazing 4.47 40-yard dash. Perkins also plays behind stud defensive tackle Maason Smith, who returns from injury. The interior of LSU’s defense looks reminiscent of past star Tiger defenses.

TE Brock Bowers: It’s tough to overshadow first-round NFL tight ends like Michael Mayer, Dalton Kincaid, and Darnell Washington, but Bowers vastly overshadows them all. As a true freshman, Bowers scored 13 touchdowns and was named first team All-SEC. As a sophomore, he was named an All-American on the back of nearly 1,000 yards at 15 yards per catch. Bowers might be the single biggest positional mismatch in the country this year.

QB Joe Milton: The rocket-arm veteran rises to be Tennessee’s presumed starter this year. His college journey is eerily similar to his predecessor, Hendon Hooker. Milton didn’t work out at Michigan, transferred to Knoxville, emerged late, and is ultra-efficient. In the Vols’ system – which rewards bombing the ball downfield – Milton should put up gaudy numbers. Don’t be surprised to hear his name announced as a Heisman finalist.

How to bet on conference winners

When betting conference futures– or any prop, at that– be sure to shop around at different books for the best price. Just because BetMGM offers LSU to win the SEC at +450 doesn’t mean they all do; FanDuel Sportsbook may offer the same prop at +600, increasing your potential payout. Here at TheLines, we compile all the odds for you so you don’t have to spend time flipping through tabs.

Betting conference winners in college football can be a tricky proposition. While it may be simple to click chalky teams like Alabama and move on, there’s not much value in that. Consider factors like:

  • Returning production
  • Coaching turnover
  • Star quarterbacks
  • Schedule (out of conference and home/away splits)
  • Offensive line experience/cohesiveness

Betting college football differs heavily from the NFL. You need to consider talent gaps, coaching prowess, and positional depth, particularly at the line of scrimmage. Don’t let recruiting dominate team evaluation as those players won’t see the field for at least another season or two.
