Alabama heavy favorite to win the West, SEC. Tennessee is the darling of the East.

Alabama comes in as a tremendous Vegas favorite. The oddsmakers love the Vawls out of the East.

This offseason, more and more writers have been decrying the inevitability of the Alabama machine, half-propping up / half-wistfully hoping that either Tennessee or LSU will knock Saban off the Tide’s high horse.

Still, Vegas is definitely not buying the "anyone but ‘Bama" narrative. The preliminary odds are out, and Alabama is the overwhelming favorite to take the SEC crown. Both the Tide and Vawls are better than even money to take their respective divisions (4/5 odds,) with LSU and Tennessee equally favored behind the Tide to win the SEC (7/2.) Interestingly, the next closest contender Vegas sees is Georgia. The Dawgs are a respectable 2/1 to take the East, but just 9/1 to win the Conference
