  • In 2023, the Alabama Crimson Tide won the SEC Tournament

  • The 2024 SEC Tournament will be held from March 13th through March 17th at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee

  • Tennessee is favored to win the tournament at -550

While some other tournaments have already taken shape in terms of the favorites, the field in the SEC is a bit bigger as three teams—Alabama, Tennessee, and Auburn—appear ready to take one another on. 

Alabama won in 2023, and Tennessee won in 2022. The last time Auburn won was in 2019, before there wasn’t a tournament in 2020. 

We’ll bring you the latest SEC Tournament betting odds and discuss our best bets on a bi-weekly basis.

Favorites to Win the 2023 SEC Tournament

Below, we’ll discuss the top three teams to win the SEC Tournament. As of February 20, 2024, those teams include Alabama, Tennessee, and Auburn. 

Tennessee Volunteers

Led by Dalton Knecht, the Volunteers aim to give the SEC trouble again this year. They’re 23-6 on the season and 13-3 in the conference. They’re 14-1 at home and 7-3 on the road. 

Knecht is projected to be a borderline top-10 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. 

They have big man Jonas Aidoo at six-foot-eleven under the rim, averaging 7.5 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. They have four players averaging 4.7 rebounds per game or more. 

Offensively, they average 80.7 points per game, shoot 45.4% from the floor, and just 34.7% from beyond the arch. 

While their shooting percentages leave a bit to be desired, their defense is their strong suit. 

Teams average 67.4 per game against them. They hold teams to a mere 38.3% from the floor and 30.7% from beyond the arch, the best shooting percentage allowed from the floor in the country. 

Tennessee is on a six-game winning streak and has also won eight of its last ten. They’ve defeated Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Texas A&M, Auburn, and Alabama in their winning streak. Their win over Alabama has vaulted them to the front of the pack. They beat them 81-74 on the road.

South Carolina Gamecocks

When we last checked in with the Gamecocks on February 20, they were +4000 to win the SEC Tournament. 

So, what’s changed?

Since February 20, South Carolina has won three straight games, including wins over Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and Florida. They’re now 24-5 with a 12-4 record in the conference. They’re 14-2 at home and 7-3 on the road. 

The Gamecocks have two players averaging double-digit points, including Meechie Johnson and B.J. Mack. 

They average 72.1 points (193rd), shoot 44.1% from the floor (186th), and shoot 34.2% from three-point range (162nd). They also hold teams to 65.6 points (21st), 42.1% from the floor (66th), and 33.1% from three-point range (128th).

Alabama Crimson Tide

While the Crimson Tide lost Brandon Miller to the NBA, that hasn’t slowed them down. This season, they’re 20-9, 12-4 in the conference, and 13-2 at home. 

Mark Sears leads this team. He averages 20.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.8 steals per game. Their top rebounders include Grant Nelson (5.5 per game) and Aaron Estrada (5.4 per game). Nelson also averages 11.9 points and 1.5 blocks per outing. 

This Crimson Tide squad has the best offense in the country. It averages 90.7 points per game (leads the country) and shoots 48% from the floor and 37.5% from the three-point range, which is in the top 27 in the country. 

Their defense has severely suffered this season. They allow 79.3 points per game, which is 333rd in the country, but their offense tends to make up for it, averaging a nation-best 90.9 points.

Since our last check-in on February 20, though, they’ve been 1-2, with losses on the road against Kentucky, 117-95, and at home to Tennessee, 81-74. They beat Ole Miss on the road 103-88 in that stretch. 

While Alabama’s offense is used to powering through their defensive struggles, that hasn’t really been the case lately and doesn’t bode well for these SEC Tournament projections.
