College Basketball Betting – Wildcats should roll to SEC Title

March Madness betting odds2010 March Madness odds have had Kentucky near the top of the list all season, and the Wildcats completed one part of their mission by romping their way to the SEC regular-season title. The Wildcats are big favorites in the SEC tournament this week, and they should be able to win this tournament for the first time since 2004.

The Wildcats are favored at -250, and they are such a dynamic team in the open court that it doesn’t matter how they play in the halfcourt. However, they’ve improved that facet of their game and Kentucky is definitely a force to be reckoned with. John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins could end up being lottery picks in next year’s drafts, but the Wildcats are still incredibly young and that could be a problem at this point of the season. Vanderbilt and Tennessee are both rated at +300, and the Volunteers defeated the Wildcats in Knoxville this year, one of two No.1 teams (Kansas was the other) to fall at Tennessee this season. The Volunteers recovered nicely from an early-season scandal that resulted in the suspension of Tyler Smith, their best player, and that’s a testament to the coaching job done by Bruce Pearl, who gets overshadowed by John Calipari at Kentucky.

Watch out for Ole Miss at +1200 in your sportsbook odds, as the Rebels won four straight to end the season. The Rebels are powered by Chris Warren and Terrico Smith, who would get more shine if not for the freshman duo of Wall and Eric Bledsoe in the Kentucky backcourt. Murphy Holloway is another player that flies under the radar in the SEC.

You wouldn’t want to follow the Florida Gators into an internet super casino, as they’ve been very streaky over the second half of the season. The Gators ended the season with three straight losses at Georgia and Kentucky, along with a home loss to Vanderbilt, and even though these losses were close, a loss is still a loss and that has to be bad for a team’s psyche at this point in the season.

Kentucky probably will have to go through Tennessee to get to Vanderbilt in the final, but the Wildcats have more than enough talent to get past their inexperience. Wall is a monster in the clutch, and no one can stop him from getting into the lane. The Wildcats also have a huge presence in the post with Cousins and Patrick Patterson, who also tends to step outside to the perimeter. They may face a scare in this tournament, probably from Tennessee, but go with Kentucky this week, and look for the Wildcats to be a popular pick among those who bet March Madness.
