The Iceman’s 2016 College Football Preview – SEC EAST

July 31st, 2016

The SEC Champion has come out of the West for seven straight seasons, and the bookmakers expect that trend to continue in 2016. The SEC EAST is a lot more top heavy than the West, with a steep drop off after the Top 3 (Tennessee, Florida and Georgia). Las Vegas bookmakers have the Vols favored to represent the East in the SEC Championship Game, and that makes plenty of sense when you consider they finished last season with six straight victories.

Lets take a look at all seven SEC East teams, and where they stand heading into the 2016 season:


1. Tennessee Volunteers

Odds: -$123 to win SEC East, +$1,450 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 9-4 Straight Up – 8-5 Against The Spread.

Projection: Tennessee was one of the youngest teams in the country last year, and they return 18 starters from last year’s 9-4 team. They weren’t far off from greatness, with all four of their losses coming in games decided by five points or less. The biggest question mark for the Vols is their passing game, with Josh Dobbs struggling to connect on intermediate and deep passes. Even if Dobbs doesn’t show improvement, they can lean on Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara, who might be the best backfield duo in the country. There is little doubt that Tennessee should be the favorite in the East.


2. Georgia Bulldogs

Odds: +$275 to win SEC East, +$6,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 10-3 Straight Up – 6-7 Against The Spread.

Projection: The Bulldogs come into the 2016 season with a new coach, as Kirby Smart replaces Mark Richt after a disappointing 2015 season. Star running back Nick Chubb suffered a gruesome knee injury last October in a loss to Tennessee, but the latest reports have Chubb expected to be 100 percent for the season opener versus North Carolina. Even if Chubb hasn’t fully recovered, the Bulldogs will be in good shape with Sony Michel who ran for 1161 yards and eight TDs in just eight games as the starter last year. There is a lot less certainty at the quarterback position, where they hope to see improvement from fifth year senior Greyson Lambert. The defense should be a strength under Smart, who made a name for himself as the defensive coordinator at Alabama. The Bulldogs also have a favorable schedule, facing both Florida and Tennessee at home.


3. Florida Gators

Odds: +$480 to win SEC East, +$6,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 10-4 Straight Up – 8-6 Against The Spread.

Projection: Florida comes into 2016 as the defending SEC East champs, but they closed out last season with three straight losses. While the Gators had a Top 10 defense in 2015, they only averaged 26.5 points per game on offense, ranking 85th nationally. They will have a new quarterback under center this year, and it will be their ninth different starter since Tim Tebow’s final year in 2009. Whoever wins the job will hope that an offensive line that allowed the most sacks in the country last year will show significant improvements. Not only were the Gators out-scored 97-24 in their final three games, they looked terrible in a 9-7 home win over Vanderbilt, and a 20-14 OT win at home to FAU. I don’t like Florida’s chances of repeating as SEC East champions.


4. Missouri Tigers

Odds: +$2,700 to win the SEC East. +$150,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 5-7 Straight Up – 3-9 Against the Spread.

Projection: The Tigers lost seven of eight games within the conference a year ago, and their struggles came largely due to poor play from the offensive line. A lack of depth up front could be an issue again in 2016. Missouri averaged just 13.6 points per game in 2015, ranking 128th nationally. Defense should be a strength, with plenty of returning talent from a squad that ranked in the Top 10, allowing just 16.2 points per game. With an unproven quarterback throwing to a mediocre receiving corps behind an offensive line that is being held together by duct tape and rubber bands, it might not matter how well the defense plays.


5. South Carolina Gamecocks

Odds: +$3,000 to win SEC East, +$60,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 3-9 Straight Up – 6-6 Against The Spread.

Projection: The Gamecocks lost their best offensive player (WR Pharoh Cooper) to the NFL draft, and their leading tackler in each of the last three seasons (LB Skai Moore) will miss the entire 2016 season after having off-season neck surgery. South Carolina ranked 99th in the nation in sacks with 20 and 102nd in tackles for a loss with 64 last year. This is a rebuilding year for the Gamecocks, and it will likely take a miracle just to become bowl eligible.


6. Kentucky Wildcats

Odds: +$3,300 to win SEC East, +$200,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 5-7 Straight Up – 3-9 Against The Spread.

Projection: Kentucky has more starters returning on offense than any other team in the SEC, but plenty of work needs to be done on the defensive side of the ball. The Wildcats ranked 70th nationally allowing 27.4 points per game in 2015, and they return just one full time starter from that unit. New co-offensive coordinators Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw come over from Cincinnati, where they had plenty of success with a Bearcats offense that ranked in the Top 10 in passing yards (359.9) and total yards (537.8). It’s probably unrealistic to think that such success can be as easily achieved in the SEC as it was in the AAC.


7. Vanderbilt Commodores

Odds: +$4,000 to win the SEC East, +$250,000 to win National Championship (5dimes)

Record in 2015: 4-8 Straight Up – 7-5 Against The Spread.
Projection: The Commodores took some steps in the right direction last year, and a bowl game isn’t out of the question in 2016. Despite improving on a disastrous 3-9 season in 2014 that saw them go 0-8 in SEC play, they still have a long way to go after winning just two games in conference play last season.

NCAA-F | Syracuse vs Notre Dame
Play on: Syracuse +9 -108 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

This is a Free #NCAAF play on the Syracuse Orange. The Notre Dame Irish have been cruising through a rather average schedule, and they are currently ranked #3 overall with their sights set on the College Football Playoffs. Standing in their way are the #13 ranked Syracuse Orange, who have lost two games by an average margin of 5.5 points. Their loss to Clemson by a score of 27-23 is more impressive than most of Notre Dame's wins. This a team that has already proved it can hang with the big boys, last year they handed Clemson it's only regular season loss. Senior quarterback Eric Dungey has been lighting it up with his arm and his legs. He's got a dozen rushing TDs and 690 rushing yards so far this season. The Orange have covered the spread in five straight non conference games, and they are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 against teams with a winning record. I'll take the points with Syracuse. Take CUSE. GL,

SERVICE BIO

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Career Highlights:

- Perfect 5-0 Super Bowl Card (2018)

- Perfect 6-0 NBA Finals Futures (2017)

- Perfect 8-0 card X-Mas Day (2016)

- Perfect 8-0 NCAA Tourney picks Sweet 16 - Final (2015)

- Picked Germany +$700 to win World Cup (2014)

- Picked Marcus Mariota +$700 to win Heisman (2014)

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 5-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.2 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to two percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
