SEC Tournament: Georgia Bulldogs big underdog against Arkansas

SEC Tournament: Georgia Bulldogs big underdog against Arkansas In a string of upsets, the Georgia Bulldogs won their place in the SEC Tournament final on Sunday to meet Arkansas as underdog for the Championship. The severe weather in Atlanta during the weekend seems to have boosted the Bulldogs' confidence and with double the upset Georgia got to the SEC Championship game. First the Bulldogs won the postponed quarterfinal game against Kentucky 60-56 in overtime on Saturday, but there was no time for rest - Georgia was back at the Alexander Memorial Coliseum to land another upset - beating the favorite Mississippi State 60-64 in the SEC Tournament semifinal game.

 Two tournament games in one day, however, are bound to affect the team's condition and the odds makers are taking no chances. The exhausted Georgia Bulldogs will enter the SEC Tournament final game as a big underdog with odds +280 to win the Championship at the online sportsbook BodogLife. Arkansas are naturally big favorite with odds to win the SEC Tournament sitting at -360. The point spread on the Georgia vs. Arkansas game is sitting at -7.5 points chalk the Razorbacks and the total expected by the bookmakers is at 131 points.

 But exhaustion is not the only factor working against the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Tournament final game. Jeremy Jacob and Chris Barnes are both out for the season with injuries, while the Razorbacks have a clean injury sheet this Sunday. Both Georgia and Arkansas are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games, and while Georgia is 6-2 against the spread in its last 8 games when playing Arkansas, the Razorback could cover the spread today. Overall the SEC Tournament final will be an enormous load on the Georgia's team physics, but as proven yesterday, upsetting a favorite opponent is not out of the Bulldogs' reach.
