Saturday 1/10/09 Basketball Picks

SEC play kicks off this morning and it looks to be a good day to be a home team.

Tennessee @ Georgia
Raycom, 11:00AM

Tennessee exerts its inside muscle and wins this one easily.

Vanderbilt @ Kentucky
Raycom, 1:00PM

Patrick Patterson will be too much for Ogilvy and company to handle. 20+ more from Jodie Meeks and Kentucky opens SEC play 1-0.

Ole Miss @ Florida
FSN, 5:00PM

This had the potential to be a good game, but with the Rebels' injuries, hard to see them keeping pace with the up-tempo Gators.

Mississippi State @ Arkansas
FSN, 5:00PM

The Razorbacks have knocked off two much better teams than MSU at home the last couple of weeks, but I smell a barn-burner here. Too much Courtney Fortson in the end though. Arkansas wins the best game of the weekend.

Auburn @ South Carolina
No TV, 6:00PM

AU's Korvotney Barber poses a lot of matchup problems for USC's front court, but look for Devan Downey to will the Gamecocks to victory.

LSU @ Alabama
Raycom, 12:30PM

The Tigers have been up and down so far in the early going, but the Tide has been just as inconsistent. Look for the Bayou Bengals to right their ship and get a tough road win to open the SEC slate.
