The quarterfinals of the 2023 SEC Tournament will roll on through Friday afternoon as the No. 4 Missouri Tigers battle the No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers at 3 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, and will air on ESPN.

Let’s take a look at the odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook and make some picks.

Tennessee vs. Missouri odds in SEC Quarterfinals

Spread: Tennessee -6
Over/Under: 139.5
Moneyline: Tennessee -230, Missouri +195

The Pick: Tennessee -6

Tennessee will have a distinct advantage on the offensive end that could very well decide this contest. Per KenPom metrics, the Vols have the fifth-best offensive rebound percentage in the country while the Tigers are the second-worst team in the nation when it comes to yielding offensive rebounds. That means UT could live off of second-chance opportunities in the paint and ultimately limit the number of Mizzou possessions on the other end. Give me Tennessee to cover as the favorite here.
