08:21 AM ET 06.21 | If you're having trouble deciding between Alabama or LSU for your pick to win the SEC in 2012, you're not alone. Bovada, one of the world's largest online sports betting websites, revealed its 2012 conference and division odds today. The most favorable don't belong to just one SEC team, as Alabama and LSU are both listed as 11/5 favorites to take home the SEC championship. Looking just at the SEC West, both teams carry an 8/5 chance to finish on top. Both the Tigers and Crimson Tide carry an 11/2 shot at winning the 2012 BCS Championship, according to Bovada. The only team with better odds is USC (3/1). Last week, the Golden Nugget sportsbook in Las Vegas listed LSU as a two-point favorite in the highly anticipated rematch set for Nov. 3.

Seems a little ridiculous - is it normal to have a line already published for a game 5 months away? I'm ignoramous of most of the Vegas stuff, sorry.

If you are a gambler place a bet on both of them to win the West and win some pocket money.
