Welcome to the mighty SEC East division, a residing place for a number of football heavyweights, but a dominant home to none! Over the last decade, the division has seen the title shiftily change hands between Georgia, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Tennessee, with the duo of South Carolina and Vanderbilt mostly settling for the role of pace-setters. As things currently stand after various offseason developments in the division, the Gamecocks and Commodores still don’t look like they’ll be breaking the ceiling that has limited them from rising atop the division, with the Wildcats and Gators also joining them at the bottom of the SEC East. So rather than spending our time talking about Florida, Vandy, South Carolina and Kentucky (who are mostly about basketball these days) and their college football odds to win the SEC East title in 2015, we’ll simply wish them all the best and focus our unbridled attention on the real divisional contenders in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee. Without further ado, let’s get down to real NCAAF betting business, shall we?
Since winning the SEC title in 2005, the Georgia Bulldogs have come close to challenging for the conference title, but they always shoot themselves on the foot. Coming off a season where they went 10-3 (6-2 in SEC), the Bulldogs were a bit of a disappointment, losing cheap games to South Carolina and Florida that cost them a shot at the division title. If they are to improve in 2015 and get a chance at the SEC East crown, the Bulldogs will need to assert their dominance in a better way.
Casting aside the memories of 2014, the Dawgs return 12 starters (7 in the offense and 5 in the defense). Losing Todd Gurley may look like a big loss to the team, but it won’t matter as Georgia has a solid replacement in heavy 2015 Heisman Trophy candidate Nick Chubb and a super-talented backup in Sony Michel. As a freshman who was playing second fiddle to Gurley, Chubb had an amazing year, rushing 215 times for 1,547 yards and 14 TDs, while Michel impressively averaged 6.4 YPC in 2014 and collected 5 TDs also as a freshman.
The quarterback job is still in question, but the pedigree of new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer (a former Florida QB) should help the Dawgs make the right decision.
Schedule-wise, Georgia will be facing monster games against Auburn (at Jordan-Hare) and Alabama (in Athens) from the SEC West division. Hosting South Carolina and visiting Tennessee may also prove a bit challenging, though with the vast talent in Georgia, the Dawgs should be able to feature strongly, taking care of the in-division games and probably sneaking away with one win from either the Tigers or the Tide. Outside the conference tests, the Bulldogs have a joke of a non-conference schedule with Georgia Tech being the only eye-raising test. A 4-0 run in the non-conference schedule should thus be very possible for the Dawgs.
