After months of waiting, the college football season is finally upon us. The first SEC team to actually hit the field in 2022 will be Vanderbilt, when they square-off against Hawaii in just over a week. But looking at the odds for the winner of each SEC Division and Championship this season, some teams may surprise you.

I have a hard time believing that Kentucky and Tennessee have better odds than Arkansas to win the SEC outright, especially when they give Florida the same chance. Maybe I am being blinded by the K.J. Jefferson light, but he’s just as stable of a quarterback than Will Levis and whoever Ole Miss decides to roll with.

Also, what has Texas A&M done to deserve to have the 3rd best odds of anyone in the SEC? I get Jimbo Fisher has recruited like a maniac for the 2022 class, but they are still in the midst of a quarterback battle and trying to find an identity as a team. Did everyone forget how last season ended for the Aggies or are they just giving them these odds because of Jimbo Fisher. Either way, the football team in College Station has something to prove before I jump on the train.

Remember, new DraftKings Sportsbook users instantly get $200 in free bets after placing a single $5 bet on any NFL, College Football, or UFC market.

If you decide to really test your luck, throw some money on the Gamecocks. Who knows what we get out of South Carolina and Spencer Rattler, but it’s a soft bet that maybe the football gods shine down on this season. I highly doubt it, but it would be a better investment than some of these others.

Make sure to get those future bets in before the season begins, which is coming up very soon.
