WynnBET Releases SEC East Win Totals for 2022-23 College Football Season

WynnBET is back with more win totals ahead of the 2022-23 college football season. 

After releasing the SEC West win totals on April 1, WynnBET moved to the SEC East on Tuesday, April 12. The max bet that WynnBET is taking on these win totals right now is $2,000. They do expect to increase that limit to $5,000 at some point this summer.

Senior traders Matt Lindeman and Motoi Pearson shared their initial win totals for this division during WynnBET's latest live stream. If you are planning to bet this market, it is certainly worth watching for their insight while setting the win totals on each team in the SEC East.

Let’s take a look at these opening numbers and see if there is any immediate value.

SEC East Win Totals

Opening odds at WynnBET:

  • Georgia: 11.5 wins (Over +200/Under -250)

  • Tennessee: 8.5 wins (Over -105/Under -115)

  • Kentucky: 8 wins (Over -110/Under -110)

  • Florida: 7 wins (Over -110/Under 110)

  • South Carolina: 6 wins (Over -150/Under +130)

  • Missouri: 5 wins (Over +100/Under -120)

  • Vanderbilt: 1.5 wins (Over -170/Under +150)

These Numbers Will Move Quickly

Lindeman admitted during the SEC West win totals show that they were going to make mistakes because they were earlier than everyone else on this. That means they will react to the market, and so these numbers will move quickly.

Arkansas’ win total was a perfect example of that. WynnBET opened Arkansas at over/under 6.5 wins, with the over actually juiced to +120. I recommend betting the over in my write-up from that show, and I know I wasn’t the only one that was ready to back the Razorbacks.

Within a few hours, the line flipped to plus-money on the under. As of April 12, Arkansas' win total was still 6.5 wins. But the over was priced at -170, while the under had a value of +150. Lindeman acknowledged that they’d need the under on the Razorbacks this year.

Translation: Jump on these numbers right away if you see a good price.

Defending Champs Lead the Way

Unsurprisingly, Georgia has the highest win total in the SEC East after winning the national championship a season ago. But the Bulldogs will have their work cut out for them, if they are hoping to become the first back-to-back champion since Alabama accomplished the feat in 2011 and 2012.

First and foremost, Georgia will have to revamp a defensive front that was instrumental in last year's 14-1 campaign. The Bulldogs, who lost their defensive coordinator Dan Lanning in the offseason, led the nation by allowing only 10.2 points per contest last fall.

But quarterback Stetson Bennett returns after coming through on the biggest stage for the Bulldogs. They also bring back tight end Brock Bowers, who was named AP SEC Newcomer of the Year after recording 56 catches for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns.

It certainly won’t be easy for Georgia in its encore season, but there is still plenty of talent on this roster to be a contender once again. Lindeman admitted on the show that he has Georgia favored by at least eight points in every game in the 2022 regular season.

One Bet to Consider

None of these numbers jump out to me compared to the SEC West show. This division figures to be rather competitive, with Georgia being head and shoulders above the rest while Vanderbilt is comfortably in the cellar. So it really comes down to how you see everything in the middle shaking out.

For me, that means fading the Tennessee hype and taking the under on 8.5 wins. The Volunteers went 7-6 in Year 1 of the Josh Heupel era. This team has concerns on the defensive side of the ball, and there are question marks at receiver outside of Cedric Tillman.

Tennessee will be an obvious underdog against Georgia and Alabama, so I have to root for two more missteps in order for this under to hit. And, given my outlook on the rest of the SEC East, I think there is a chance that happens.

The Volunteers face Pittsburgh on Sept. 10 for their big nonconference challenge. Even without Kenny Pickett, I think the Volunteers are an underdog in that game. I’m high on South Carolina this year, which could be an interesting road tilt for UT on Nov. 19. Tennessee gets Kentucky at home on Oct. 29, but I still might lean the Wildcats when we get to that point in the season.

I don't feel nearly as confident as I do with Arkansas' win total, but I am comfortable taking the under on Tennessee right away. Let's just hope the Volunteers end up finishing lower than second in this division.
