Down in the heart of Atlanta, the 12 teams in the SEC will be at it in NCAA basketball betting action for the 2011 SEC Tournament. But before you make your SEC Tournament picks this season, be sure to check out our analysis of the college basketball odds for this huge event.

Perhaps the sneakiest team in this field is the team that is the favorite, the Kentucky Wildcats (1.50 to 1 Odds to Win SEC Tournament at BetUS Sportsbook). There is no doubt that this is a team that is chock full of talent, and the win over the Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday made it so it could get a bye in the first round of the tournament. The Wildcats don’t have the deepest team in the world, and this could be a big time issue, making that one extra game that they don’t have to play incredibly pivotal. We know that Head Coach John Calipari has been down on his team all season long, but this is a chance for UK to really shine for the rest of the SEC.

Perhaps the most important team to watch in this tournament is the Alabama Crimson Tide (8 to 1 SEC Tournament Odds at BetUS Sportsbook). Of all of the teams that have byes in the first round of the SEC Tournament, this is the one with the longest odds and a reasonable chance to get the job done. Bama really needs at least one more win in this tournament to get into the field of 68 in all likelihood, and it very well could come down to a prospective game between it and Georgia. The Tide have a tremendous defense, and this unit could be the difference in winning and losing a lot of games in this tournament and in the future.

It’s going to be really hard to count out the Florida Gators (1.75 to 1 SEC Tournament Lines at BetUS Sportsbook). This is the only other team that we would really consider at this point, as we know that this is an incredible squad. Head Coach Billy Donovan knows what it takes to win the SEC, and he knows how to get his team ready for these huge games. Chandler Parsons is one of the best players that this conference has seen in quite some time as well, and he is inevitably going to be the hero of this tournament if the Gators end up winning it.
