When it comes to the Southeastern Conference in college football, no team dominates as much as the Alabama Crimson Tide. If you need further proof, just look at the 28 SEC titles that belong to the team — including six out of the last nine.

Alabama will enter the upcoming college football season after winning its fifth national championship since 2011 last season, which is why it's not surprising to see their SEC title odds continuing to increase.

Alabama SEC Championship Odds

The Crimson Tide are favored to win the 2021 SEC Championship at -160 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's college football odds list. That's a slight improvement over the -150 odds that Alabama was listed at back in May of this year.

The Georgia Bulldogs clock in at a close second with +190 odds while the Texas A&M Aggies sit a distant third at +1200.

Even though the Crimson Tide are expected to dominate in 2021, their roster will certainly look a bit different than it did last year. With players like Mac Jones, Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith gone to play in the NFL, the reigns to the team are in new hands. Nevertheless, Alabama's ability to consistently bring in new promising talent to replace exiting players is a reason why the school finishes atop the standings more often than not.

Potential Heisman Trophy candidate Bryce Young will be starting under center for the Crimson Tide next season and has the potential to be one of the best quarterbacks in college football. Third-year wideout John Metchie III will be Young's No. 1 wideout after recording 55 receptions for 916 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns in 2020. They are just two of the important pieces that'll have to play a big role in any success Alabama sees this season.

The Crimson Tide are also favored to win the 2021 National Championship at +250 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Needless to say, Alabama fans can expect big things from their team in 2021.
