SEC Win Totals

The SEC, the king of the college football conferences, is ready for another season. It appears to be top-heavy with a couple of powerhouses: defending champion Georgia as well as Alabama. Once again, it will be Kirby Smart and Nick Saban vying for the national championship again. Alabama was playing tremendously for the majority of the season, and after the Crimson Tide defeated the Bulldogs in the SEC championship game, 41-24, Georgia came right back and took down Alabama in the national championship game, 33-18. Let us see how the win totals are for the two squads, among the other contenders in the SEC.

Georgia

At 11.5 wins, the Georgia win total is for sure on the high side, and that is understandable after they lost just one game, and it was to Alabama in the conference championship game. For Smart and the Bulldogs, they have a decent chance at running the table, and they will have to do just that to hit the over. At +150, it seems worth it. Stetson Bennett IV is back at the quarterback position, and ready for another strong season for Georgia.

Alabama

For Alabama, it will not be easy to hit the over either, as it is at 11 wins. However, once again, the schedule favors another top-tier SEC team. Saban’s squad will seek revenge against Texas A&M, as Bryce Young looks to bring this Alabama team to the top of national football. Can the Crimson Tide win yet another title? The school is hoping to add to its very long list of championships, with the most recent coming in 2020.

Texas A&M

Texas A&M, the kryptonite to the 2021 Crimson Tide, will be at Alabama in 2022, so unfortunately, that may not be an easy one for the Aggies. Will Texas A&M be able to get over the hump in 2022 after having just a 4-4 record in the conference? The Aggies finished with just eight wins overall after finishing the previous season (2020) with a 9-1 (8-1) record. Texas A&M has not won double-digit games since 2012, so there is a low chance of that. Now, can the Aggies win at least nine and get the over on 8.5 wins? Jimbo Fisher does not seem up to the task in 2022 with a tough schedule. Take the under.

Kentucky

Kentucky also has an over/under of 8.5 wins this season, so can the Wildcats surpass their win total? This schedule does not give many breaks to Kentucky. Head coach Mark Stoops is in need of some luck this season. Hopefully, the Wildcats will not have another frustrating losing streak like last year. The Wildcats reached No. 11 in the polls before losses to Georgia, Mississippi State, and Tennessee. Overall, Kentucky played well and finished 10-3 (5-3), so the expectation is that the team will take a step back this year. Quarterback Will Levis will have a lot of expectations heading into 2022, but road contests at Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Missouri will make it difficult. It seems like the under on 8.5 wins is the play here.

Ole Miss

We are finished with the 8.5-win teams in terms of win totals, so here are the 7.5-game win total squads. Lane Kiffin’s team also finished 10-3 last season, and it was an impressive 6-2 record that the school sported in the conference. Unfortunately, the Rebels did have a loss to Baylor in the Sugar Bowl. This year, Ole Miss is being underrated. Although the Rebels will have their hands full with a home contest against Alabama, they should have a strong season. Take the over with 7.5 wins.

Tennessee

Tennessee has road games at LSU, defending champion Georgia, and South Carolina, so it will not be too easy for the Volunteers this season. You have to bet -145 for the over of 7.5 wins, but it may be worth it. Hendon Hooker is very strong at the quarterback position, and he could be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy by the end of the season. Expect a bounce-back year for Tennessee and go with the over.

What is a College Football Win Total Bet?

The season win total is part prop, part future hybrid. The plus and minus values assign odds to either side of the team’s win total line. This bet functions like a total bet. Choose either over or under the sportsbook’s line.

Example Alabama Season Wins

  • 11.5 u -155
  • 11.5 o +120

This win total line includes ½ games. That means no tie bets are possible.

Options:
Risk $155 to win $100 that Alabama wins less than 11.5 games. A result of 11 or less wins.
Risk $100 to win $120 that Alabama wins more than 11.5 games. A result of 12 or more wins.

How to Handicap a College Football Win Total Bet

Handicap a college football team’s win total using its upcoming schedule, likely starters, and any recently transferred players. Remember, you can bet under the sportsbook’s line if the win total is too high. If you believe a team is likely to win fewer games, bet under a win total line that looks too high.

Avoid betting on your favorite college football teams or others that you otherwise root for. “Fan bias” is real. It can cloud the judgment of even the most seasoned sports handicappers. Better to research and bet on a team you don’t know much about.

Always consider both sides of a win total line. The line is set by the sportsbook. It may move as betting action piles up on one side more than the other. The team doesn’t have to “win” the exact win total line. Instead, you’re deciding whether their actual number of wins will be more or less than the sportsbook’s line.

Finally, be careful when betting whole number lines like 7, 8, or 9. A tie is possible when the sportsbook doesn’t set a .5 half-win line. The good news: you get your bet back if the bet pushes. The bad news: you tie up money in the bet waiting for a result.
