SEC Championship Game: Alabama Crimson Tide (-17, 74) vs. Florida Gators
Edwards: If the total stands at 74 points, it will be the highest total in SEC Championship Game history by a full 12 points. It’s also the highest total Florida has seen this season and matches the highest total Alabama has seen in 2020.
Those would normally be red flags for anyone mulling an Over play, but the Crimson Tide have just been different this season.
When Alabama won 63-48 at Ole Miss with a 74-point total, the 111 combined points soared Over. When Florida won 51-35 in Oxford, the combined score was 86 points. The Gators also had a combined score of 98 points in a 63-35 win vs. Arkansas and 79 in a 41-38 loss at Texas A&M.
Florida quarterback Kyle Trask has a 40-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio, while Alabama QB Mac Jones has a 27-3 TD-INT ratio. Both have weapons galore at their disposal.
