The SEC Championship has a new time slot this year. Traditionally an afternoon game, which is dumb, the SEC title game will now kick off in primetime with an 8 p.m start time on Saturday, December 18. The game will be played in Mercedez-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and will be televised on CBS.
Now let’s talk about the odds we see Kentucky in that game. They’re not great, although Kentucky has the fifth-best current odds to win the championship. Right now a $100 bet on the Cats to win the SEC Championship will pay $10,000. That same bet on Alabama will earn you $30.77.
Texas A&M +1800
South Carolina +25000
Mississippi State +75000
Night time SEC Championship will be fun, especially now that we know UK-UCLA is earlier that same day.
