2022 SEC win totals, odds, choices: predictions for every team as Georgia and Alabama face high expectations

The 2022 college football season is approaching, and there are investments to be made now that could pay off in a big way beyond the end of the regular season. Caesars Sportsbook released total wins/less counts for each SEC team, which set the tone for “talking season” and predictions for each individual game.

We are here for you.

To no one’s surprise, Georgia And the Alabama You have high expectations after you topped the Bulldogs Crimson Tide in January in the College Football Playoff National Championship. They are the only two teams in the SEC that are expected to top the double-digit winning mark according to the odds makers.

Where does each team stand in the conference? Here are our regular season winning totals and our summer picks, which are subject to change between now and the start of the season.

Alabama

Over/Under 11 wins

Analytics: The Crimson Tide Vengeance Tour is going to Atlanta in December with an impeccable track record and CFP appearances there to take it. The game in Texas in the second week will not be the challenge that some believe, and the home game against Texas A&M and coach Jimbo Fisher will not be as elusive as it was last year. Alabama has the best players in college football (quarterback Bryce Young and edge accelerator Will Anderson Jr.), and a well-prepared schedule for the title race. Pick: More than 11 (-140)

Arkansas

Over/Under 7 wins

Analytics: Head coach Sam Bateman will enter his third season in Fayetteville, Arkansas, with plenty of hype after a successful 2021 season that saw the Razorbacks win 9-4. They’ll start strong with four straight wins, but a home game against Alabama followed by three straight road games mid-season will slow down the hype a bit. However, a strong November will send pigs into pot season on a high note. Selection: more than 7 (-125)

Auburn

Over/Under 6 wins

Analytics: It’s been a tumultuous season on the Plains after a coup attempt that nearly cost coach Brian Harsen his job after just one season. He’ll still be wandering the sidelines this fall, but he needs a solid season in order to avoid December’s chopping block. The Tigers have five consecutive home games to open the season, which will bring them into the national conversation. The roster gets tougher in mid-October, and it’s hard to imagine a team with mid-level contenders and deep issues on the defensive line to keep things running for a full three months. With that, they will at least find a way to be competitive. Pick: More than 6 (-130)

Over/Under 7 wins

Analytics: First-year coach Billy Napier has the Gator Nation weight on his shoulders and a potential under-star star at double-threat center Anthony Richardson. Moreover, the state of retreat is deep and its members are numerous enough to make a crocodile attack dangerous on a consistent basis. With that said, the table-makers have handed the Gators some tough games on the road/neutral location, and the opening game against Utah will be a tough job. Selection: more than 7 (-125)

Georgia

Over/Under 11.5 wins

  • Wins: against. OregonAnd the Samfordin South Carolina, Kent Statein Missouri, in Auburn, in Vanderbilt, opposite Florida, in Tennessee, in Mississippi, in Kentucky, Georgia Tech
  • losses: no one

Analytics: In general, it is difficult to “overtake” when a team has to defeat in order to bet the money. However, the defending champion has a great chance of making it happen. The opener against Oregon in Atlanta will be a tough test for the Bulldog’s new-look defense, but the road roster isn’t too daunting and the crossover division games against Auburn and Mississippi State aren’t all that tough. Quarterback Stetson Bennett IV will lead his team to Atlanta for the second consecutive season with a CFP berth in hand. Picking: over 11.5 (+150)

Kentucky

Over/Under 8.5 times win

Analytics: The Wildcats will be counted as one of Georgia’s top rivals in the SEC East thanks to the stability that coach Mark Stubbs brings to the table and the rising side of quarterback Will Leavis. However, the road roster is pretty brutal and they still have to host Georgia in November. Stoops and Co. will be. Very competitive, but the season of nine wins for a higher card seems a bit exaggerated. Pick up: less than 8.5 (-140)

Over/Under 7 wins

  • Wins: Opposite Florida, Southern, Mississippi, New MexicoTennessee UAB
  • losses: In Auburn, in Florida, Ole Miss, Alabama, in Arkansas, in Texas A&M

Analytics: Coach Brian Kelly’s first year in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will be a rollercoaster of epic proportions. The position of the quarterback is very healthy, but the offensive and secondary line is difficult to trust, which will lead to inconsistency this fall. The Tigers will get off to a hot start, but depth issues combined with a slight increase in competition will send Kelly into the post-season with a .500 figure. Pick up: less than 7 (-130)

Mississippi

Over/Under 6.5 times win

  • Wins: Memphisin ArizonaAnd the bowling greenArkansas, Auburn, East Tennessee
  • losses: At LSU, Texas A&M, in Kentucky, in Alabama, Georgia, in Ole Miss

Analytics: Coach Mike Leach has quarterback in place with Will Rogers, but the wide receiving squad remains a concern, with the Bulldogs dragging Georgia from the East as a rotating opponent and it’s hard to trust Leach to make adjustments if opposing defenses succeed early on. Eight straight games to open the season without a farewell won’t help a team with some deep problems to solve. Pick up: less than 6 (-110)

Missouri

Over/Under 5 wins

Analytics: The Oddsmakers don’t have much faith in the Tigers this year, but it’s safe to say coach Eli Drinkwitz will have enough of his running appearances to remain competitive in the East. Listing a home is relatively easy and a road trip to Kansas won’t be as difficult as some might think. The games against South Carolina and Arkansas will determine whether this was a decent season or whether the Tigers came as a pleasant surprise. Pick up: more than 5 (-105)

Ole Miss

Over/Under 7.5 times win

  • Wins: TroyAnd the Central Arkansasat Georgia Tech, TulsaKentucky, in Vanderbilt, Auburn, at LSU, in Texas A&M, Mississippi
  • losses: Alabama in Arkansas

Analytics: It’s the easiest bet on the board thanks to Coach Lynn Kevin’s offensive training acumen, healthy quarterback position and a flurry of upcoming transfers that will make the Rebels tough this fall. Road games at LSU and Texas A&M to close out a nine-game winning streak to open the year are the pivotal games here. Winning one or both of them will keep Team Kiffin in the CFP debate heading into the final month. Pick up: more than 7.5 (-140)

South Carolina

Over/Under 6 wins

Analytics: Quarterback Spencer Rattler has moved to Gamecocks and second-year coach Shane Beamer is off-season and will provide an immediate boost to an attacking midfielder who hasn’t made much of a quarterback in 2021. He’s not Heisman Trophy’s lover. He was promoted this time last year, but his strong arm and experience in the Big 12 will allow the Gamecocks to win a surprise or two en route to a seven-win season. Selection: more than 7 (-125)

Tennessee

Over/Under 7.5 times win

  • Wins: ball countryin PittsburghAnd the AkronMartin, Utah, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, in Vanderbilt
  • losses: At LSU, Alabama, in Georgia, in South Carolina

Analytics: The Volunteers have a legitimate black horse Heisman Trophy in quarterback Hendon Hooker and a wide open offense that should run faster than any other game in the SEC (and possibly state). This will allow head coach Josh Hubble’s team to dictate the style of most matches. Styles make fights, which should send volumes above the total: Pick 7.5 (-145)

Texas A&M

Over/Under 8.5 times win

  • Wins: Sam HoustonAnd the Appalachian StateAnd the Miamiin Mississippi, Florida, in Auburn, UMass, LSU
  • losses: Against Arkansas, in Alabama, in South Carolina, Olly Miss

Analytics: Aggies are the neat choice to make some noise at SEC West, and the schedule is setting up for some success. With that said, it’s hard to trust a team with massive midfield uncertainty and the coach at Jimbo Fisher who has had a very difficult time handling matches against equal or lesser opponents. Aggies will have several toss games that will determine which side of the coin is, and this team will be more likely to recoup losses from turbulent wins. Choose: less than 8.5 (+145)

Vanderbilt

Over/Under 2.5 times win

  • Wins: in HawaiiAnd the Which color
  • losses: Wake Forestin Northern Illinois, in Alabama, Ole Miss, in Georgia, in Missouri, South Carolina, in Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee

Analytics: Northern Illinois is the swing game of the Commodores family. The defending MAC champions are no easy task by any stretch of the imagination, especially for the offensively challenged Commodores who finished last in the conference in total attack, yards per game and scoring insult in 2021. College football tied for cruel and unusual punishment, nor A road match against defending National Champion Georgia Clark Leah helps matters. Pick up: less than 2.5 (-170)
