SEC Basketball Predictions January 23

Been a while since I posted. Still missing football, but starting to get into basketball. National Signing Day is probably on the minds of most every SEC fan except for maybe Kentucky (though UK has a big recruiting weekend). Onto the basketball predictions for the weekend.

Mississippi State at Alabama 12 ET
Alabama has lost some close games at home recently while Miss State has needed their home court advantage to win some close ones. Today, the Bulldogs have to go on the road though where I like the Crimson Tide to break through their slump with the win.
Pick: Alabama

Auburn at Vanderbilt 1:30 ET
The Commodores in Memorial Gym are too much for a struggling Auburn team whose only roads wins are LSU and Alabama A&M
Pick: Vanderbilt

Ole Miss at LSU 1:30 ET
LSU has won the last three in this series and seven of the last 10, but is struggling mightily this season having lost their last four and six of their last seven. The Rebels have road wins at UTEP and Georgia while just losing to Tennessee in Knoxville. Baton Rouge doesn't faze Ole Miss.
Pick: Ole Miss

Arkansas at Kentucky 4:00 ET
The Razorbacks are losers of five of their last six. Make that six of their last seven.
Pick: Kentucky

Tennessee at Georgia 5:00 ET
A game pitting two of the rising stars in college basketball. One is already getting the notoriety (Bruce Pearl) while another is flying under the radar (Mark Fox). But the Vols have too much depth and talent for the young Bulldogs to overcome.
Pick: Tennessee

South Carolina at Florida 6:00 ET
Both the Gamecocks and the Gators have been a little disappointing this year when they thought they could challenge for the East title. But fortunately both team's struggles have come outside of SEC play thus far.

South Carolina has just one road win on the season at Auburn while losing to BC, Wofford, Clemson, and Miami. Florida falls more into that second group of teams.
Pick: Florida
