SEC Basketball Odds for March 4

Let’s look at all seven games in order of when they tip-off, the odds for each game at the best online sportsbooks, and discuss what SEC Tournament scenarios each game presents.

No. 2 Alabama at No. 24 Texas A&M — Noon ET, CBS

  • Point spread: Alabama -1
  • Moneylines: Alabama -115 | Texas A&M -105
  • Total: 150.5 points

The opening game of the day has nothing on the line in terms of the conference tournament. Alabama has already secured its second SEC championship in the last three seasons, and both teams are locked in as the top two seeds.

Georgia at South Carolina — 1 p.m. ET, SEC Network

  • Moneylines: Georgia -115 | South Carolina -105
  • Total: 141 points

The Bulldogs have nothing to gain as they are two games back from Mississippi State, Arkansas, and Florida and have a three-game cushion on the teams below them. Georgia will play the last-place LSU Tigers on Wednesday, March 8, in the first round of the conference tournament.

South Carolina will be facing off against Ole Miss in the first round regardless of this game’s outcome. South Carolina is in control of the 12 seed outside of a loss and Ole Miss win.

No. 12 Tennessee at Auburn — 2 p.m. ET, ESPN

  • Point spread: Auburn -1.5
  • Moneylines: Auburn -115 | Tennessee -105
  • Total: 131 points

Tennessee beat Auburn in their only matchup this season, 46-43 on Feb. 4. 

The Vols control their own fate as they can lock up a double bye with a win at Neville Arena on Saturday. Tennessee can fall anywhere from the third to sixth seed:

  • 3 — Tennessee wins and Kentucky loses.
  • 4 — Tennessee and Kentucky win, Missouri and Vanderbilt lose
  • 5 — Tennessee loses and both Missouri and Vanderbilt win
  • 6 — Kentucky and Tennessee lose, Missouri and Vanderbilt win

Auburn will either be the sixth or seventh seed:

  • 6 — Auburn wins, Vanderbilt wins, and Missouri loses
  • 7 — Any other result

No. 23 Kentucky at Arkansas — 2 p.m. ET, CBS

  • Point spread: Arkansas -5.5
  • Moneylines: Arkansas -210 | Kentucky +180
  • Total: 141.5 points

As stated above, Kentucky can lock up the No. 3 seed with a win over the Razorbacks. A loss by the Wildcats and wins by Tennessee and Missouri would drop Kentucky to the five seed. In the event of a four-way tie between Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, and Vanderbilt, Mizzou jumps up to the No. 3 seed followed by Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee.

A win for Arkansas and losses by both Florida and Mississippi State would place the Razorbacks as the No. 8 seed. If all three teams were to win, the seeding would be Mississippi State (8), Arkansas (9), and Florida (10).

Ole Miss at Missouri — 3:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network

  • Point spread: Missouri -9.5
  • Moneylines: Missouri -440 | Ole Miss +330
  • Total: 148.5 points

Ole Miss doesn’t have much to gain here, as its only outcomes are the No. 12 or No. 13 seed. If Ole Miss beats Missouri and South Carolina loses, the Rebels will get the 12 seed. Any other outcome and they end as the 13 seed.

For Missouri, the Tigers can land anywhere between the third and sixth seed:

  • 3 — Missouri wins and both Tennessee and Kentucky lose
  • 4 — Missouri wins and one of Tennessee or Kentucky lose
  • 5 — Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee all win
  • 6 — Missouri loses and Vanderbilt wins

LSU at Florida — 6 p.m. ET, SEC Network

  • Point spread: Florida -8.5
  • Moneylines: Florida -360 | LSU +295
  • Total: 141.5 points

LSU is locked into the No. 14 seed and has nothing at stake in their regular season finale.

The Florida Gators are tied with Mississippi State and Arkansas and can land anywhere from 8 to 10:

  • 8 — Florida wins and both Mississippi State and Arkansas lose
  • 9 — Florida wins and Mississippi State loses
  • 10 — Florida, Arkansas, and Mississippi State all win or lose
