They just had Arch Madness in St. Louis and now the SEC tournament is coming to town. As ESPN’s Joe Tessitore and Sean Farnham have been forecasting for weeks, the SEC tourney will be unpredictable.
Think about this, of the major and mid-major conferences in which there are daily college basketball odds, the SEC is one of only two in which the champion had five losses in league play. (The Big 12 was the other)
It would not be a stretch to think this tournament could be very similar to the recently completed MAAC tourney, in which the highest seed to advance to the semi-finals was a No.4 and the championship game featured a No.6 vs. a No. 4 seed. Just below are the current odds for all the teams to win this event, but that just scratches the surface when thinking about placing college basketball picks. After just a crazy season in the SEC in which Kentucky was never a threat to win the conference, this should be a headshaking five days. Maybe the setting is perfect for this tournament being in the – ‘Show Me’ state.
