Bleacher Report

Expert Prediction
Brian Marron Kentucky Wildcats

Bleacher Report’s Brian Marron is expecting Kentucky (EVEN) to complete the three-peat. But he does mention a pair of legitimate threats in Florida and South Carolina, which are priced at +140 and +1,000, respectively, to claim the SEC title.

The Gators have the depth and experience, including a go-to scorer in KeVaughn Allen and playmaker senior Kasey Hill, to dethrone John Calipari’s men. Meanwhile, the Gamecocks’ defense-first approach can cause serious trouble for the Wildcats, especially in times when their offense struggles.  South Carolina is holding fellow SEC tenants to 39.4 field-goal percentage, among the best in the nation.

Expert Prediction
Henry Bushnell Florida Gators

Henry Bushnell of Yahoo! Sports foresees a championship showdown between the SEC’s top two squads in Kentucky (EVEN) and Florida (+140), with the latter as the eventual winner.  He didn’t really give any explanation for doing so, but he clearly has enormous confidence on the Gators, who finished the regular season just two games behind the top-seeded Wildcats.

Campus Insiders Oregon Ducks or Florida Gators

According to the experts at Campus Insiders, everybody will get their wish: a Kentucky-Florida championship game. The likely (and boring) outcome is a three-peat for the Wildcats (EVEN), but keep your hopes up on the Gators (-140). They, after all, handed Kentucky its worst beating of the season—an 88-66 win on Feb. 4.
