The No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide preserved their undefeated record with a 55-17 win over LSU on Saturday and punched their ticket to the SEC Championship Game. Alabama will face the No. 6-ranked Florida Gators for the SEC crown.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Crimson Tide as massive 14-point favorites in their opening odds.

Alabama vs Florida 2020 SEC Championship Game Odds

The opening odds clearly respect the Crimson Tide's impressive season, although they could be sleeping on the highly-ranked Gators as well.

These two storied programs have clashed in 41 all-time, head-to-head matchups. The Crimson Tide have a commanding 27-14 lead in the series. The most recent game between these two sides occurred in December 2016 when they faced off in the SEC Championship Game. Alabama easily handled the Gators, 54-16, in that game.

Both Alabama and Florida have dominated opponents this season, though, with the Tide ranking first in average scoring margin (+30.9) and the Gators ranking 11th (+16.9).

There's still time for the odds to move, but Alabama is the clear favorite heading into this matchup. The game will take place on Dec. 19, 2020 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA. It will be aired on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
