Default O/U for Wins Set at 5 for 2017

This is just from one sports book but the over/under for wins they have set for 2017 is as follows:

SC: 5
Clemson 9.5
Georgia: 9


They have us as the lowest projected win total in the SEC, along with Miss St.

Thoughts?

They probably spent about 10 seconds making this prediction.

I think we get to 7 wins. Maybe 8 with some luck. 5 is not out of the question though, but I believe injuries would be the only factor there imo.

I agree - that's what I'd call a "safe bet" for them. based solely on last year's wins/losses.

I think it's right. We beat one decent team last year.

I'll take the over and say 6 or 7 wins, but I can see 5.

We would have won 2 more if we had a good QB the first half of the season.

Our defense isn't going to win us any games, but we really do have some skill position talent at QB, RB and WR for the first time in a few years. I think we can score enough to win 7, maybe 8.

Definitely over 5 for the Carolina. Honestly, I really like the NC State game as an opener bc I feel like its a very good measuring stick to see where this team can go in the season.

The real question should be, is anyone taking the over of the 9.5 on Clemson? Im leaning 65/35 on the under.

Clemson's defense alone will win them 9 games.

That number will change once some betting occurs and we move towards the season.
Opeing lines are meaningless.

with the losses of their best 4 offensive players and ass grabber on defense now gone, they may struggle to win 9. and let's not forget, if they hadn't been so lucky, they lose 3 last year.

I would take the over on both Clemson and South Carolina. Clemson's schedule isn't as difficult as folks make it out to be.

We can beat NC State, Mizzou, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas, and Wofford. So they must think we lose 2 of those.

That's understandable. I think we will lose one from that group, Arkansas or NC State, but beat UT or Florida.

I'm not sure I like our chances against NC State or Arkansas. To say we definitely beat them is not realistic.

Going through our schedule, I see 5 wins, maybe 6.

Only our best teams in history have won 8+ games in a regular season. I think you're spot on with seven wins. I also think over 5 is good safe bet. Take the over.
