SEC Championship Game CashBet Wagering Analysis

Florida’s loss to LSU badly damaged credibility with the best sportsbook public.   Meanwhile, the oddsmakers have not been able to chase off the masses from betting the Crimson Tide.

Florida Limps in With Badly Stubbed Toe

Following last week Florida is 8-2 straight up, 4-5-1 against the spread, and 6-4 over the total.  The Gators rank 8th for total offense and 12th for scoring.  By contrast, Florida’s defense is 51st overall and 48th for points allowed.  Quarterback Kyle Trask threw an early pick-six that set the tone for the disaster.  As a result, his Betting on college football Heisman hopes are likely over.

Tide Rolling Oddsmakers and Opponents

Last week Alabama walloped Arkansas 52-3 win as 28-point road favorites.  Under the total of 70.5 was a winner too.  Now the Crimson Tide is 10-0 straight up, 8-2 against the spread, and 6-4 over the total.  Alabama ranks 5th for total offense and 3rd for scoring.  Defensively Bama ranks 27th nationally and 11th for points allowed.

Namely, Mac Jones is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.  Alabama’s quarterback has a 203.9 QB rating with 3321 yards.  Jones has a 76.4 percent completion rate, 11.7 yards per pass, and 27 touchdowns.  More emphatically he has shattered all expectations.  If not for Jones, running back Najee Harris would also be a strong Heisman contender.  Harris has 1084 yards rushing, 5.9 yards per rush, and 22 touchdowns.  So too would DeVonta Smith make for an understandable Heisman Trophy candidate.  Smith has 83 catches good for 1327 yards, 16.0 yards per catch, and 15 touchdowns.

Defensive lineman Christian Barmore has a team-leading 6 sacks.  While linebacker Will Anderson Jr has 5 sacks and 37 tackles.  Field goal kicking has been a perpetual bet on NCAAF worry for Alabama.  But Will Reichard is changing that with 11 of 11 on field goals this season.
