Why Is Kentucky the SEC Tournament Favorite?

Kentucky entered the 2019 SEC Tournament as the favorite to go all the way, but the Wildcats weren’t able to get the job done, as the Auburn Tigers emerged triumphant. Kentucky, which had won the tournament four years in a row, is looking to get back on track as the true class of the SEC.

In total, the Wildcats have won a record 49 SEC championships, well ahead of the runner-up LSU Tigers, who boast 11. Led by Brandon Boston Jr. and Olivier Sarr, the Wildcats once again look like a force to be reckoned with. They should make yet another deep run in the tournament and are a reliable choice in SEC basketball odds.

Tennessee Offering Plenty of Value

Given the big-name recognition of a blue-blood school like Kentucky, it’s unsurprising to see the Wildcats as the very early favorites to win the SEC tournament. But the Volunteers are getting undervalued in the eyes of oddsmakers, so their +265 price in SEC basketball odds looks appealing given the amount of talent on their roster.

Prior to the season getting underway, Tennessee has been voted the likeliest team to win the 2021 SEC Tournament by a select panel of both SEC and national media members. This is the first time since the 2008-09 season that the Vols find themselves in that position.

John Fulkerson and Yves Pons are the core pieces of this team and both are in line to have huge seasons, with Fulkerson predicted to be on the all-SEC first team and Pons to be on the second team. It won’t be easy to get through Kentucky, but if any team in the conference is going to accomplish the feat, it’s Tennessee.
