It looks like the SEC is going to get 4 teams into the Tournament this season.
The team with the best chance at being the 5th is Alabama…but they have to finish strong.
Georgia is dangerous but too many of their close calls have been losses. At this point their only real shot is a conference tourney run.
The Dawgs might have been able to salvage their season if they had been able to complete the upset of Kentucky last weekend. Maybe
Now they are playing out the string and hoping to get hot at the right moment. That is a tough go for an experience team.
An equally tough blow was the loss of Yante Maten in that game against UK. He is the Dawgs top scorer and important player on the boards and on defense.
No Maten puts a lot of scoring pressure on diminutive J.J. Frazier. He was electric against the Wildcats, scoring a season high 36 points but it is likely too much to ask him to carry the team for the rest of the season. He should put up some numbers though.
There will be more touches up front for Derek Ogbeide but Georgia’s leading rebounder is more of a worker than a talent. He has scored in double figures just twice in league play.
The Bulldogs could really fall off the map over these final few games. It is probably best to stay away from them.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Bama scored a big win on the road at South Carolina two week ago. They have four winnable SEC games left and at least a shot to be an at large bid if they win them all and don’t embarrass themselves in the conference tournament.
The fact that the Tide are finishing strong could have something to do with the fact that top scorer, freshman Braxton Key, has gotten more comfortable.
He is still a bit of a turnover machine but he dropped 26 and 9 on the Dawgs when Alabama beat them on the road by 20 in January.
Sophomore Dazon Ingram is the only other double digit scorer for Bama. The sophomore provides a little of everything leading in assists and steals.
Alabama is a strong defensive team and they are going to make it challenging for this limited Georgia squad.

Free Georgia Bulldogs vs. Alabama Crimson Tide NCAAB Prediction:
Bama will be the favourite once this line gets released but they might get a little too much respect.
The injury to Maten and the fact that they blew them out last time could inflate the line.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Bama -4.
I am not sure where this line should be. Alabama as a big favourite makes me nervous.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Alabama 74 – Georgia 66
