Bet on the SEC Tournament

It’s had to beat a team three times, especially when you are the underdog all three times. Florida should be motivated to win this game, but the Commodores are playing at a much higher level than their record indicates. Their lone loss over nearly a month was to Kentucky on the road by six points. They have also covered in eight straight games as an underdog.
