SEC Tournament Prediction
The SEC Tournament odds paint the picture that three teams stand above the rest: the No. 7 Kentucky Wildcats, No. 5 Auburn Tigers and No. 13 Tennessee Volunteers.
Although Kentucky is the +200 favorite, taking Auburn at +270 is the better bet. For starters, the Tigers just finished as the SEC regular-season champions with a 15-3 in-conference record this year.
Not only that but Auburn has Jabari Smith Jr., who's could potentially go first overall at the 2022 NBA Draft. The 18-year-old phenom has been nothing short of outstanding this season, averaging 17.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
Considering how the Tigers won the SEC Tournament in 2019, it wouldn't be a shock to see them pull it off again this year.
