2020 Football Preview – SEC Handicapping
Looking for 2020 SEC Conference Predictions? Here at Cappers Picks, we’re trying to preview and handicap every CFB conference for the 2020 season. Let’s look at the most talented conference in the country: the SEC.

The SEC should be incredibly entertaining again this season.
The defending conference (and national) champs enter 2020 with just the fifth best odds to repeat. The big shake-ups include having the Texas A&M Aggies and the Florida Gators in the top five.
And with that, here are the 4 teams to bet on in the SEC that can win the 2020 SEC, followed by my free pick underneath!
2020 SEC Conference Predictions: Alabama +175
Alabama is the favorite to win the SEC for a few reasons. However, the biggest one is Nick Saban.
Saban’s coaching and recruiting has brought a level of consistent success rarely seen in college football. Before last year, they reached the CFB playoffs every year since it was introduced (five straight years).
Alabama lost a number of important players on both sides of the ball. However, Saban’s program is a well-oiled machine, and they have no shortage of talent. This includes nabbing four five-star recruits and a three-way battle for the starting quarterback job.
2020 SEC Conference Predictions: Georgia +300
The Bulldogs finished the 2019 season with 12 wins and a Sugar Bowl victory. They earned a spot in the SEC championship game as well, but got crushed by a dominant LSU squad.
Looking forward to 2020: Georgia has the top-rated recruiting class, with four five-star recruits, 15 four-star recruits and six three-star recruits.
The 2020 draft saw a number of Georgia players taken, but almost all of them were offensive players. The 2019 Bulldogs succeeded behind a dominant defense, which allowed only 176 points over 14 games (second best in the SEC: Florida with 201). The low roster turnover on that side of the ball will be very important for this team going forward.
2020 SEC Conference Predictions: Florida +500
This sentence is to serve as a reminder that the 2019 Gators went 11-2 and won the Orange Bowl after their starting QB suffered a season-ending injury in week three. Week three.
The Gators finished at #6 in the Final AP poll, with the best offense and second best defense in the SEC East. Seven of them were taken in the NFL Draft this year, but a quick reminder that their starting quarterback will be returning to the team. The Gators might have some value at 5-1.
2020 SEC Conference Predictions: LSU +800
Joe Burrow and LSU just had the greatest college football season of all time. The team was an wrecking crew on both sides of the ball, and their 26.5 point differential was miles ahead of every team (except for Alabama, who were right on their tail).
With great success, however, comes losing a ton of guys in the Draft. Fourteen LSU players were selected by NFL teams in April, with five of them going in the first round.
Despite the greatness that is Coach O (Hold That Tiger), I don’t suspect the team to recover from that kind of personnel loss.

2020 SEC Conference Predictions: Money on Alabama and Florida (Bet Now at any of our Reviewed Online Sportsbooks!)
Taking ‘Bama to win the SEC at plus-money is probably too good to pass up. They had a great statistical season last year and should leapfrog LSU on their way to another CFB Playoff appearance.
However, Florida at 5-1 are a great pick. With all the shakeup in the SEC this year, this conference is up for grabs and the Gators are in an ideal position to capture their first SEC Championship since 2008.
