SEC football betting odds for BCS title

SEC football betting odds for BCS title

Alabama is a two-time defending national champion and favored to win the BCS title again in 2014 - and six of the top dozen teams on the college football betting odds menu are from the SEC as well. So why is Bodog listing the conference as an underdog to win its seventh straight title?

“Even though Alabama and Texas A&M are currently our frontrunners, there are still a lot of quality teams in the BCS and Oregon and Ohio State in particular are legitimate threats to win it all,” said Kevin Bradley, sportsboook manager at Bovada.lv. “So the line reflects the sheer volume of ‘other’ teams while respecting the SEC domination of the BCS title game.”

Indeed, Ohio State appears to be a major threat. Ditto Oregon, even after losing coach Chip Kelly to the NFL. And from a pure numbers standpoint, there are 10 other conferences who might send a team to the championship game and win.

Still, a -140 line on the 'field' (meaning all the other conferences) and a +100 even-odds bet on the SEC (with six of the top 14 listed teams at Bodog) seems like a good wager to try.
