The odds for the SEC Tournament are out with Tennessee and Kentucky holding the top spots on FanDuel Sportsbook.
No. 3 seed Tennessee is the favorite at +155 despite dropping SEC matchups to LSU and Auburn in the last month of the regular season.
Tennessee is coming off a loss to Auburn in its final regular season game, but it's still the favorite (+155) to win the SEC Tournament on @FDSportsbook over Kentucky (+180) pic.twitter.com/hLkkDwme4R— The Duel (@TheDuelSports) March 11, 2019
No. 2 seed Kentucky dropped its matchup with Tennessee in February, but have won six of its last seven SEC matchups. The Wildcats need to win a rematch with the Volunteers if they want a shot at the SEC Championship.
The most surprising odds come in for No. 1 seed LSU, which now sit at +750 to win the tournament in the wake of the suspension of HC Will Wade. Wade was suspended after the FBI uncovered an alleged illegal recruiting ring in the team.
LSU is still riding a five-game win streak with a win over Tennessee during that span, but overcoming the adversity of a new coach this late in the season will be challenging.
The SEC Tournament tips off Wednesday, March 13 with the championship on Sunday, March 17.
