In college football betting circles, the Sun Belt Conference has certainly earned its Fun Belt nickname over the last few years. With memorable teams like App State and Coastal Carolina providing plenty of entertainment on weekdays and weekends alike, this league is always worth keeping an eye on. Here, we look at the Sun Belt championship betting odds and break down the field in this conference in 2023.
Sun Belt Conference Odds
Sun Belt Conference Odds Preview
There are several teams inside of +1000 to win the Sun Belt championship this season. The co-favorites to win the league are the South Alabama Jaguars and Troy Trojans, with Troy looking for their second straight conference crown. But there are several teams that are within striking distance that can take this conference for themselves, as the league is wide open in 2023.
Coastal Carolina, App State, Marshall, and Louisiana are all being given chances to win this conference by oddsmakers. The tight nature of the odds to win this conference will make games between these six teams incredibly important. But taking care of business against the longshots to win this league will also be vital, as upset losses could be devastating to the teams in the Sun Belt.
It is also worth noting that the best team in the Sun Belt could be a team that is not eligible to win this conference in 2023. James Madison has transitioned from FCS football to the FBS and the Sun Belt. That makes them ineligible to win this conference in 2023, but they are off to a 3-0 start to this year and they could end up outperforming many of the teams in this league.
Sun Belt Conference Football Betting & Handicapping
The Sun Belt Conference is going to be tough to call this season. With so many teams that have a chance to win this conference going into the year, it will be so important for teams to get off to a good start in conference play this season to avoid falling behind the rest of the competition.
Also, it is so important to keep track of injuries and other player absences, as they can have a huge impact on Sun Belt competition. With several mid-week games for teams in this conference, being able to deliver on short rest is more important in this league and the MAC than the other conferences in the country.
