Where is each team at the conference? Here are the regular season win totals and our summer picks, which are subject to change prior to the start of the season.

Alabama

Over/under 11 wins

  • Wins: Utah, Texas, UL Monroe, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Texas, A&M, Tennessee, Mississippi, LSU, Ole Miss, Austin P, Auburn
  • Losses: Nobody

Analysis: Crimson Tide’s rematch tour kicks off in December in Atlanta with an impeccable track record and CFP performance. Playing Texas in Week 2 won’t be as tough as some think, and the home game against Texas A&M and coach Jimbo Fisher won’t be as tough as last year. Alabama has two of the best players in college football (guard Bryce Young and winger Will Anderson Jr.) and a schedule that sets them up well for a title fight. Choice: Over 11 (-140)

Arkansas

Over/under 7 wins

  • Wins: Cincinnati, South Carolina, Missouri vs. Texas A&M, Liberty, LSU, Ole Miss, in Missouri
  • Losses: Alabama, Mississippi, BYU, Auburn

Analysis: Coach Sam Pittman will start his third season in Fayetteville, Arkansas with a lot of buzz after a successful 2021 season that saw the Razorbacks take a 9-4 lead. They’ll start well with four straight wins, but a home game against Alabama followed by three straight road games midway through the season will slow down the hype a bit. However, a strong November will send the Hogs into bowl season on a high note. Choice: Over 7 (-125)

Auburn

Over/under 6 wins

  • Wins: Mercer, San Jose, PA, Missouri, LSU, Arkansas, Western Kentucky
  • Losses: in Georgia, in Ole Miss, in Mississippi, in Texas A&M, in Alabama

Analysis: It was a tumultuous off-season in the Plains following the coup attempt that nearly cost coach Brian Harsin his job in just one season. He will still roam the sidelines this fall, but he needs to have a good season to avoid the scaffolding in December. The Tigers have five straight home games to open a season that will take them to the national stage. In mid-October, things get a lot more complicated, and it’s hard to imagine a team with an average number of quarterback contenders and problems with depth in the defensive line that can last three full months. With that said, they will find a way to at least be competitive. Choice: More than 6 (-130)

Florida

Over/under 7 wins

  • Wins: Kentucky, USF, East Washington, Missouri, LSU, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Florida
  • Losses: Utah, Tennessee vs. Georgia, Texas A&M

Analysis: Freshman coach Billy Napier has the weight of the Gator Nation on his shoulders and a potential superstar under double-threat center Anthony Richardson. What’s more, the running back situation is deep, and its members are versatile enough to constantly make a Gator offense dangerous. With that said, the schedulers have given the Gators some tough road/neutral ground games, and the first leg against Utah will be tough. Choice: Over 7 (-125)

Georgia

Over/under 11.5 wins

  • Wins: v. Oregon, Samford, South Carolina, Kent State, Missouri, Auburn, Vanderbilt, v. Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Losses: Nobody

Analysis: Generally speaking, it’s hard to outplay when a team has to go undefeated for the bet to cash out. However, the reigning champions of the country have a good chance of doing so. The first matchup against Oregon in Atlanta will be a tough test for the Bulldogs’ new look defense, but the road plan isn’t too intimidating, and the inter-division games against Auburn and Mississippi State aren’t particularly challenging. Quarterback Stetson Bennett IV will lead his team to Atlanta for the second straight season with a CFP spot. Choice: Over 11.5 (+150)

Kentucky

Over/under 8.5 wins

  • Wins: Miami (Ohio), Youngstown, Northern Illinois, South Carolina, Mississippi, Vanderbilt, Louisville
  • Losses: in Florida, in Ole Miss, in Tennessee, in Missouri, Georgia

Analysis: The Wildcats will be considered one of Georgia’s top contenders in the SEC East thanks to the stability coach Mark Stoops brings to the game and the advantages of quarterback Will Lewis. However, the road plan is absolutely brutal and they have yet to take over Georgia in November. Stoops & Co. will be extremely competitive, but a nine-win season to cash in more of a ticket seems a bit extreme. Choice: up to 8.5 (-140)

LSU

Over/under 7 wins

  • Wins: v. Florida State, Southern State, Mississippi State, New Mexico, Tennessee, UAB
  • Losses: Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas A&M

Analysis: Coach Brian Kelly’s first year in Baton Rouge, Louisiana will be a roller coaster of incredible proportions. The quarterback situation is very healthy, but it is difficult to trust the offensive line and the secondary line, which will lead to inconsistencies this fall. The Tigers would get off to a hot start, but depth issues combined with increased competition would send Kelly into the postseason with a .500 record. Choice: up to 7 years (-130)

Mississippi

Over/under 6.5 wins

  • Wins: Memphis, Arizona, Bowling Green, Arkansas, Auburn, East Tennessee.
  • Losses: at LSU, Texas A&M, in Kentucky, in Alabama, Georgia, at Ole Miss

Analysis: Coach Mike Leach has his quarterback with Will Rogers, but his wide receiving body is still a concern, the Bulldogs are pulling Georgia out of the East as their ever-changing opponent, and it’s hard to trust Leach to make adjustments if the opposing defense gets through. quick success. Eight games in a row to open a season without a goodbye won’t help a team that has depth issues to deal with. Choice: up to 6 years (-110)

Missouri

Over/under 5 wins

  • Wins: Louisiana Institute of Technology, Kansas, Abilene Christian, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, New Mexico
  • Losses: in Auburn, Georgia, in Florida, in South Carolina, in Tennessee, Arkansas

Analysis: Bookmakers don’t have much faith in the Tigers this year, but it’s safe to say coach Eli Drinkwitz will get enough from his runners to stay competitive in the East. The home plan is relatively simple, and a trip to Kansas won’t be as difficult as some people think. Games against South Carolina and Arkansas will determine if this season is worth it or if the Tigers are a pleasant surprise. Choice: More than 5 (-105)

be miss

Over/under 7.5 wins

  • Wins: Troy, Central Arkansas, at Georgia Tech, Tulsa, KY, at Vanderbilt, Auburn, at LSU, at Texas A&M, Mississippi
  • Losses: Alabama, Arkansas

Analysis: It’s the easiest bet on the board thanks to coach Lane Kiffin’s acumen on offense, a good quarterback situation and a wave of incoming transfers that will make the Rebels tough this fall. Road games at LSU and Texas A&M, ending a nine-game streak in a row and opening the year, are key games here. Wins in one or both will allow Kiffin’s team to participate in the final month’s CFP discussion. Choice: Over 7.5 (-140)

South Carolina

Over/under 6 wins

  • Wins: Georgia State, Charlotte, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Tennessee
  • Losses: in Arkansas, Georgia, in Kentucky, in Florida, in Clemson

Analysis: Quarterback Spencer Rattler moved to the Gamecocks and second-year coach Shane Beamer during the off-season and will immediately bolster an offense that has done little at quarterback in 2021. He is not a Heisman Trophy caliber player. that he was touted at this time last year, but his strong hand and experience in the Big 12 will see the Gamecocks make a couple of mishaps en route to a seven-win season. Choice: Over 7 (-125)

Tennessee

Over/under 7.5 wins

  • Wins: Ball State, Pittsburgh, Akron, Florida, Utah Martin, Kentucky, Missouri, Vanderbilt
  • Losses: at LSU, Alabama, in Georgia, in South Carolina

Analysis: The Volunteers have a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate in quarterback Hendon Hooker and a wide open offense that should move faster than any other in the SEC (and possibly the country). This will allow Coach Josh Hupel’s team to dictate the style of most games. Styles put up fights, which should send the Vols by amount: Choose over 7.5 (-145)

Texas A&M

Over/under 8.5 wins

  • Wins: Sam Houston, Appalachian State, Miami, Mississippi State, Florida, Auburn, Massachusetts, LSU
  • Losses: vs. Arkansas, in Alabama, in South Carolina, Ole Miss

Analysis: The Aggies are a great choice to make a splash in the SEC West and the schedule really does make a difference. With that said, it’s hard to trust a team with huge quarterback defensive insecurity and a coach in Jimbo Fischer who had an extremely difficult time handling games against equal or smaller opponents. Aggie will have multiple draw games that will determine which side of the coin gets the money, and that team will be more susceptible to losses than wins. Choice: up to 8.5 (+145)

Vanderbilt

Over/under 2.5 wins

  • Wins: in Hawaii, Elon
  • Losses: Wake Forest, Northern Illinois, Alabama, Ole Miss, Georgia, Missouri, South Carolina, Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee

Analysis: The Northern Illinois game is a seesaw for the Commodores. Protection…
