SEC Win Total Projections for 2015

Alabama Crimson Tide

Alabama Crimson Tide

The 2015 college football season is still a few months away. However, the news cycle never stops, and there’s plenty to keep the conversation going this summer.

Athlon Sports is counting down its rankings for 2015, while 5Dimes Sportsbook has released some early win total over/under odds for the upcoming season.

5Dimes’ win totals featured some interesting projections for Auburn, Tennessee and Alabama. Auburn was only 8.5, while the Crimson Tide is listed at 9.5 on the sportsbook.

With the win totals released, Athlon Sports is taking a look at all 14 of the SEC teams and whether we would take the over, under or push on the projections for 2015.

SEC Win Total Projections: Over, Under or Push

East Division

Florida: 7.5

Braden Gall: Over

Jim McElwain alone adds a win or two for this offense, and this team was WAY closer to winning the East than folks remember last year.

Steven Lassan: Under

I like the Jim McElwain hire, and the defense should be strong once again. However, the offensive line is a major issue, and a redshirt freshman (Will Grier) is likely to start at quarterback.

Mitch Light: Under

The defense should be stout, but there are too many issues on offense to expect this team to contend in the East.

Georgia: 9

Braden Gall: Over

The Dawgs are the clear-cut frontrunner in the East and get a bunch of big games at home. This is the most complete team in the easier division.

Steven Lassan: Over

The passing game is still a question mark, but the Bulldogs have the best backfield and one of the top defenses in the SEC. Outside of games against Alabama and Auburn, I don’t see a loss on this schedule.

Mitch Light: Over

The conference schedule is very tough — Georgia plays both Alabama and Auburn — but Mark Richt has the most complete team in the SEC.

Kentucky: 6

Braden Gall: Under

This team is improving under Coach Stoops, and Patrick Towles could will them to a push. But I'm going under with that schedule.

Steven Lassan: Push

I might be too optimistic on Kentucky, but a bowl seems reasonable for the Wildcats in 2015. Boom Williams is a breakout candidate at running back, and the talent level has improved on the recruiting trail. The finale against Louisville could be a must-win game to get to six.

Mitch Light: Over

Mark Stoops talented young core is a year older and should break through with the school’s first winning season since 2009.

Missouri: 7.5

Braden Gall: Over
