The SEC has become one of the most exciting sports betting conferences in the world of college sports, for both football and basketball. With the 2011 – 12-basketball season set to begin this weekend; bettors will be looking closely to find out who the best SEC team is. With Missouri entering the SEC next season, the worlds top bookie software conference will get a whole lot tougher. Here is a preview of the SEC entering this weekend.
Kentucky looks to be the favorite again this season, as John Calipari has added several players that should make the National title game this season. Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb return to help guide new recruits Anthony Davis and Marquis Teague and Michael Gilchrist to one of the most impressive seasons in Kentucky history. All five players have the potential to not only be drafted to the NBA in the next few years, but also be lottery picks for several lucky NBA teams. Kentucky should dominate the SEC, as most of the teams are in rebuilding years.
However, with that being said, do not underestimate the likes of Vanderbilt or Florida. The Commodores return basically the same roster last season, except for one injured player. Vanderbilt’s lineup is made up of juniors and seniors, who have been able to form good chemistry over the last couple of seasons. After getting bounce from the March Madness tournament early last year, the Commodores will be entering the 2011 – 12 season with a chip on their shoulder. If Kentucky struggles, look for Vanderbilt to slide in and take the SEC crown.
Florida Gators are another interesting team, as they have the talent to go far in a tournament like March Madness. One of the main concerns for Florida is that they have a ton of talented defenders, but not enough offense. The Gators inability to score could be their undoing as the season progresses.
