Tennessee’s 2018 SEC Championship odds released

An interesting look around the conference.

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Alabama vs Florida Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

More SEC title odds have been released out of Vegas, but nothing has changed up at the top. Alabama (shocker, right?) is the favorite to capture the SEC crown this December in Atlanta, showing 5/8 odds. Georgia is a distant second at 5/2, despite winning the conference last season. The Bulldogs have plenty to replace on defense, however.

The Tennessee Volunteers are way on down the list, of course. The rebuilding Vols are listed as 100/1 longshots to win the SEC, checking in ahead of only Arkansas, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Ole Miss is off the board, thanks to their post-season ban.

You can see the full odds below.

The best values on the board for me are probably Mississippi State and Auburn. Each return experienced SEC quarterbacks in Nick Fitzgerald and Jarrett Stidham. Auburn has proven to be one of the tougher matchups for Alabama through the years, while Mississippi State nearly pulled off the shocker over the Tide last season in Starkville.

At the end of the day though, it’s just tough to bet against Nick Saban and Alabama. Tua Tagovailoa flashed signs of brilliance, which could make Alabama that much tougher this time around.

Who are you putting you money on here?
