Best bet — Georgia (+250): Chill out, Bama fans. This isn’t a slight against your program. But this Georgia squad is in the perfect spot to waltz through the SEC East, into the SEC Championship Game and out of Mercedes-Benz Stadium as conference champions. Coach Kirby Smart has one of the top quarterbacks in the conference in JT Daniels, one of the best running back rooms in the country, a highly-talented offensive line and a defense that has become a force in college football. That doesn’t mean that I’m going to pick the Bulldogs to win their first title since 2017. But getting them at +250 is an extremely low-risk, high-reward investment.
Worst wager — Florida (+1200): The defending SEC East champs are picked to be Georgia’s biggest threat, but a bet on the Gators will be more of a long shot than a responsible investment. Florida has to break in new quarterback Emory Jones, it has an average offensive line and rushing attack, and its defense — at last check — is still coordinated by the much-maligned Todd Grantham. What’s more, Dan Mullen’s crew gets Alabama as its rotating SEC West opponent and has to go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to take on LSU in its permanent cross-division rivalry game. The Gators are much closer to being third in the East this season than they are to being first.
What can you say?

There is a lot of talk about championships right now, but I gotta be honest and say I’m really looking froward to UF having a shitty rebuilding season and hearing about how Kirby Smart cheats.
Next year at this time we’ll be joking about Todd Grantham taking over Butch’s coveted position of fetching coffee for Nick Saban while Dan’s still in Gatorland putting rabbit ears on the transfer portal.

No argument from me on the worst wager scenario, but then again I hate FU and their fan base…FTMFs
I love the “closer to third…. than first” comment.
OL is a BIG concern. DB experience is the 2nd one.
In sports as in fashion, orange is a losing proposition.
