SEC Bowl Odds – 12/10/12 Update

Wondering what the lines are for the SEC’s bowl games this holiday season?  Here’s an updated look and, yes, the Vegas bookmakers know full well that betters will be plunking down big cash on SEC teams based on their reputation.  That’s why every single team from Mike Slive’s league opened as a favorite:

 

Music City Bowl in Nashville

Vanderbilt vs NC State

Opened:  VU -5

Current:  VU -6.5

 

Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta

LSU vs Clemson

Opened:  LSU -3

Current:  LSU -4

 

Gator Bowl in Jacksonville

Mississippi State vs Northwestern

Opened:  MSU -2

Current:  MSU -2

 

Outback Bowl in Tampa

South Carolina vs Michigan

Opened:  USC -4.5

Current:  USC -5

 

Capital One Bowl in Orlando

Georgia vs Nebraska

Opened:  UGA -8.5

Current:  UGA -10

 

Sugar Bowl in New Orleans

Florida vs Louisville

Opened:  UF -15

Current:  UF -14

 

Cotton Bowl in Arlington

Texas A&M vs Oklahoma

Opened:  A&M -3

Current:  A&M -4.5

 

BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham

Ole Miss vs Pittsburgh

Opened:  UM -2

Current:  UM -3.5

 

BCS Championship Game

Alabama vs Notre Dame

Opened:  UA -9.5

Current:  UA -9.5

 

As you can see, in every game the line has either held or moved in favor of the SEC team.  As we’ve discussed before, Las Vegas oddsmakers set their lines to bring in an even amount of cash on both teams.  They set the lines based on what they believe the perception of Vegas-bound gamblers will be once they arrive in the local casinos.

When bowl season rolls around, that SEC reputation plays a big role in gamblers’ minds and the boys in the desert know it.

I am a Bulldog fan but anyone else think that line is a little high and more of a reaction to a bad game played in the slow conference championship game?

I think Miss St is the team most likely to lose.  It would be awesome to see the league run the gauntlet and go 9-0!
