The Cats are a 100/1 Longshot to Win the SEC

With the KSR crew out in Vegas the betting lines are rolling in like log down the Appalachian Mountains. Today’s latest odds direct from the casino floor: Chances each team has to win their conference.

The SEC

Alabama 11/5

Georgia 13/5

Auburn 9/2

Ole Miss 8/1

LSU 8/1

Arkansas 10/1

Texas A&M 11/1

Tennessee 13/1

Missouri 13/1

Florida 25/1

Mississippi Stat 30/1

South Carolina 25/1

Kentucky 100/1

Vanderbilt 150/1

Two things pop out to me. 1. Kentucky is a long shot with a tough schedule. 2. The SEC race is as wide open as it’s ever been. Time to shock the world.

    Tough Schedule? We play in the SEC East. Who in the SEC has an easier Schedule than UK? Dumb comment. Do your homework.

      Well, this was from last year… I would imagine it will probably be about the same this year.

      1. Washington — 101-56, 64.33%
      2. Arkansas — 99-57, 63.46%
      3. Miami, FL — 97-58, 62.58%
      4. Alabama — 96-58, 62.34%
      5. Kentucky — 95-58, 62.09%
      6. Purdue — 97-61, 61.39%
      7. California — 95-61, 60.90%
      8. Auburn — 92-60, 60.53%
      9. Michigan St — 95-62, 60.51%
      10. Texas A&M — 93-61, 60.39%

      “The SEC leads with six teams in the Top 10 of the rankings – Arkansas (2), Alabama (4), Kentucky (5), Auburn (8), Texas A&M (10), and Georgia (10). The Big Ten and Pac-12 are second with two teams each, followed by the ACC with one.”

      So, to answer your question: Every other team in the East had an easier schedule.

      I hope you realize having a tough schedule ranking is not something to brag about. Unless, you are on the list because you stepped out of conference for top notch competition, like the Alabama, Wisconsin, and Michigan State. UK did not do that. UK-LaMonroe doesn’t count.

      Statistically, every other SEC school’s schedule got easier by having UK on it. UK, being at the bottom of the SEC has a tough schedule by default. Every other SEC school is far better than them.

      Your commemt has literally nothing to do whatsoever with the first two posts. No one said it was something to brag about. One poster inaccurately implied that UK has the easiest schedule in the conference. Another poster pointed out that the implication is incorrect and, in fact,completely asinine. Kind of like your non sequitur. Thanks for playing.

    Our schedule is easy for the SEC. We play all the teams with long odds. If we can’t get a bowl game with this schedule, well we may never. It all depends on Stoops’ defense.
