The final 2016 S&P+ projections are complete, but since I teased the idea of win probabilities in the primary SB Nation post, I wanted to use Study Hall as a repository for total win projections. Below you’ll find odds of each possible given record (overall and conference-only) for each team in the SEC. Enjoy.

SEC conference-play win projections
Your East division favorites: Tennessee and Georgia. S&P+ has been kind of a funny tool for messing with Vol fans’ psyches. They get affirmation with the top-10 ranking ... and massive anxiety from basically being division co-favorites. And on the flipside, I get to mess with the heads of Georgia fans (And yes, obviously a lot will depend on Georgia’s QB situation. Like, everything will depend on that.)
Your West division favorites: Alabama and LSU. Probably no surprise there.
Your national title contenders: Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Georgia. I’m loosely assigning anyone with at least a 10% chance of hitting 11 wins as a title contender. That means these four qualify, while Ole Miss, Florida, and Arkansas are at least in shooting distance.
