2020 Over/Under All SEC Teams


Recommended Posts

Sportsbook lists over/unders for all 14 SEC teams

SDS Staff | 5 hours ago

Right now, everyone is just hoping that the coronavirus eventually subsides and we can have college football this fall. That’s far from certain as things stand right now, but hopefully, the virus will go away in time to start the season on time.

Of course, we all play a part in that right now by staying home and practicing social distancing.


All SEC spring sports have been canceled, but football coaches are still holding out hope for some sort of summer mini-camp to help make up for missing spring practice.


Who’s going to win the SEC in 2020? The usual suspects fall at the top of the list with Alabama, LSU, Georgia and Florida listed as favorites. Sportsbook Draftkings listed their over/unders for the 2020 season. They are reflected below:

  • Alabama: 10.5
  • Arkansas: 3.5
  • Auburn: 9
  • Florida: 10
  • Georgia: 10
  • Kentucky: 6.5
  • LSU: 9
  • Mississippi State: 7
  • Missouri: 7
  • Ole Piss: 5.5
  • South Carolina: 5.5
  • Tennessee: 7
  • Texas A&M: 9.5
  • Vanderbilt: 3

Couple takeaways:

  • Yes, Texas A&M should have a solid team, but the over of 9.5 would seem a little too high. That’s taking nothing away from the Aggies and Jimbo Fisher; it’s just the reality of the brutal conference schedule. The good thing for TAMU is that it doesn’t play Clemson this year, and it has 4 winnable out-of-conference games against ACU, North Texas, Colorado and Fresno State. Also, South Carolina and Vanderbilt — both beatable — are this year’s cross-over games.
  • An interesting line for us might be Tennessee at 7. The Vols finished strong last season, winning their last 6 games. Charlotte, Furman, Missouri, South Carolina, Arkansas, Kentucky, Troy and Vandy are all winnable.

Why LSU football’s odds to repeat as national champions are fair


LSU football won’t be the favorites to win the 2020 College Football Playoff.

The oddsmakers aren’t expecting LSU football to repeat as national champions in 2020.

According to FoxBet, the Tigers are +1500 to win the College Football Playoff in 2020. Those odds are tied with Florida for fifth best.

FoxBet lists Clemson with the best odds at +215, with Ohio State right behind them at +400 (Alabama is third at +475 and Georgia is fourth at +1000).

It’s not a surprise to see LSU down the list a bit, despite going 15-0 in 2019.

The Tigers lost an incredible amount of talent from their 2019 squad, including all-world quarterback Joe Burrow, standout wide receiver Justin Jefferson and star running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. LSU also lost key players like Grant Delpit, K’Lavon Chaisson, Kristian Fulton, Patrick Queen and Thaddeus Moss, among others.

And there’s also the loss of passing game coordinator Joe Brady, who undoubtedly made a huge impact on the Tigers’ offense in 2019.

(Brady was replaced by Scott Linehan, a former NFL head coach/offensive coordinator.)

Of course, LSU still has a ton of talent. Myles Brennan is a capable quarterback. Ja’Marr Chase is the best wide receiver in the nation. And Derrick Stingley Jr is the best cornerback in the nation.

The Tigers have been recruiting at a high level under Ed Orgeron, so while there might be a lack of experience at some positions this season, there will still be plenty of talent.

Unfortunately for LSU, the teams listed ahead of them have talent and experience, which is a necessary combination to win a championship.

Clemson will return quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Ohio State returns quarterback Justin Fields.

It’s all about the quarterback position. Elite quarterbacks win championships — especially elite quarterbacks with experience.

Brennan might prove to be elite for LSU, but that’s the thing — he has to actually prove it. We already know that Lawrence and Fields are elite. And that’s why Clemson and Ohio State are going to be trendy picks to win a title next season.

It’s still certainly possible that LSU could repeat as champs in 2020. No one thought the Tigers would go 15-0 in 2019. College football has a way of keeping everyone on their toes. It’s what makes the sport so great.

But based on what we currently know about the top teams in college football, it would be unwise to suggest that LSU is the favorite to win it all next season.
