Remember when I Handicapped the SEC East Before the Season? Here’s How I did.


 

This is the eleventh article reviewing the topics I deemed most important to the SEC before the season began.

The previous articles in this series can be found here:

 

In August I spent some time handicapping the possible outcomes for each and every team in the SEC.  Here is how all of that turned out and how some of the projections could have made you some money in Las Vegas (keep in mind this only includes regular season wins):

The SEC East

Team DYC Projected Wins Actual Wins Vegas Spot Dude Win $?
Florida 8-9 11 8 Yes
Georgia 11-12 11 9.5 Yes
Kentucky 3-4 2 4.5-5.5 Yes
Missouri 6 5 6.5 Yes
S. Carolina 9-10 10 8.5 Yes
Tennessee 7-8 5 7.5 Off
Vandy 7-8 8 5.5-6.5 Yes

 

In general, I used the following process for determining a Vegas “Win”: If one number was reached by me, I used that relative to the spot of Vegas, if a range was found be me, I split the middle and compared to Vegas.  Vegas offered two ranges (Vandy and Kentucky) but both ends of the ranges were clearly above and below where I was, so there was no gray area.

Tennessee was the lone “off” bet, as my range yielded a 7.5 and the Vegas spot was 7.5.

So, betting on seven games with clear differentiation would have yielded you seven wins.

 

I’ll put up the figures for the SEC West tomorrow.

 

That’s all I got/
