Vegas Oddsmakers Like The SEC

When it comes to the folks in the Las Vegas casinos who set the lines, reputation matters.  And no league has a better reputation than the SEC.

Sports bettors knows that.  And Vegas bookmakers know that sports bettors know that. 

As oddsmakers have shared with us for our yearly “Here’s what Vegas thinks of the SEC” summertime pieces — also known as a business trip to Pleasureland for those of us here at MrSEC — the bookmakers set their lines in the hopes of drawing in even cash on both teams.  Therefore, they take into account public perception when setting their lines.

Again, no league’s got a better public perception than the SEC.  Which probably explains the following…

Ten SEC teams in bowls.  Eight of them are favored.  In fact, only two SEC teams have seen money go against them since the lines were first set: Arkansas (versus Ohio State) and LSU (versus Texas A&M).
