Georgia was picked to win the East with 2011 points, including 265 first-place votes. Tennessee was second with 1682 points and 14 votes to win the division, while South Carolina was third with 1254 points.
Alabama was picked to win the West with 1899 total points, topping LSU with 1838 points and Texas A&M was third with 1144 points.
Taking the Bulldogs to repeat as champion is the easiest bet with how the SEC East has played against Georgia as of late. The West is more intriguing in terms of competition as LSU looks to hold of Alabama and Nick Saban.
