With reports coming in suggesting Johnny Manziel's NCAA investigation is over, Bovada has updated its betting lines for the Aggies. A&M has now surpassed LSU as the leading contender for Alabama in the west, and is tied with Georgia for second in the general conference odds. It should be a tight race at the top of the SEC, with six teams owning legitimate shots at the title.

Alabama remains strong favorites, but it appears Vegas has a high opinion of this Manziel kid. Seems like they think he could go places.
Back in July, Texas A&M had 15/4 odds to win the division and 15/2 odds to win the conference. With rumors of a suspension for Manziel running wild, Braxton Miller took a significant lead in the Heisman betting race -- one that will likely be mitigated shortly. Previously, Bovada has given us an estimate on how a significant Manziel suspension would alter the national title race (hint: a lot).
