The Vanderbilt Commodores (21-10, 14-13 ATS) are probably the second best team in the SEC this year, so look for a double-digit win on the CBB lines over the upstarts from Georgia (15-16. 13-14 ATS) in the SEC Tournament from the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, LA on Friday, March 9th at 10:00 ET.
Vanderbilt finished in a three-way tie for second in the SEC at 10-6 with Florida and surprising Tennessee, but remember that the Commodores got off to a slow start this year on the CBB lines while their starting center Festus Ezeli was recuperating from an injury. They are 15-6 overall since Ezeli made his belated debut and they have now climbed all the way up to 20th in the country on the Pomeroy Ratings.
Georgia got to this point by upsetting Mississippi State yesterday, but we have been saying all year long that MSU is overrated and Vanderbilt is underrated, so look for Georgia’s attempt at a Cinderella run to come to a screeching halt with the rise up in competition tonight.
It is easy to forget that Vanderbilt was ranked in the top 10 in the preseason polls on the CBB lines, as this is one of the most experienced teams in the country. With Ezeli in the lineup, the team starts four seniors and a junior, with the junior being one of the best point guards in the nation in John Jenkins.
The Commodores have three projected early round NBA draft picks in Ezeli, Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor, so the optimism around this team before the year was understandable. Vanderbilt has lived up to that billing at times since Ezeli returned, but the six losses with the big man in the lineup have been a sign of inconsistency.
Still, this should be a dangerous out in the NCAA Tournament when playing to the best of its abilities. Vanderbilt ranks an excellent 15th in the country in offensive efficiency and 64th in defensive efficiency, and the offense has as good of an inside/ outside game as any in the land.
Jenkins spearheads a perimeter offense that is ranked 11th in the country in three- point shooting at an even 40.0 percent, and the return of Ezeli has allowed the two- point offense to rise up to 66th nationally at 50.6 percent.
Georgia has a losing record and it ranked only 110th by Pomeroy on the CBB betting lines. The Georgia Bulldogs are a terrible shooting team, ranking 295th in effective shooting percentage, 296th in two-point offense and 272nd in three-point offense, so if the Commodores get their offense in gear, we see no way for Georgia to keep pace.
Vanderbilt swept both regular season meetings between these teams and we look for the ‘Dores to complete the hat trick easily by double-digits in the SEC quarterfinals.
