SEC College Basketball Auburn Tigers at Florida Gators Start Time, Odds, Free Pick

The Auburn Tigers travel to take on the Florida Gators in SEC College Basketball action tonight. The game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on ESPN2. Currently the odds for the game have the Gators favored by a comfortable margin in this one.

Florida has dealt with injuries all season and because of that, Billy Donovan's team has struggled on the court. The Gators are just 9-6 on the season, but have been able to pick up victories in both of their conference games to date. Donovan's team certainly looks like they are going to have to start piecing things together in conference action if they want to play in the tournament. Most of their games the rest of the season are winnable, and how scary would the Gators be as 10th seed in the tournament?

Auburn wants to have a resurgence under Bruce Pearl, who left the ESPN studios to come back to college. The Tigers have not been a good basketball team in recent years, and Bruce has been tabbed as the savior of Auburn basketball. It certainly won't be easy, but this year the Tigers are playing solid. A decent year in the SEC would certainly be a step in the right direction for them.

The Tigers are led in scoring by KT Harrell, who pours in 17 points per game. Auburn has gotten a double-digit scoring threat back in guard Antoine Mason, a guy that averages almost 15 points a game. Both are going to have to play well tonight in order for the Tigers to hang around in Gainesville tonight.

Florida will rely on Dorian Finney-Smith and MIchael Frazier II, who combine to score almost 28 points and 10 rebounds per game. Both are veterans for Donovan and will be key components to tonight's game. The Gators have a ton of players that log minutes on the floor, with 10 guys averaging at least 16 minutes on the floor per game. 

Auburn comes in having won six of their last seven games overall and just knocked off Missouri on Saturday. The Tigers are one of the hottest teams in the SEC and although they aren't the best offensive team in the country, they should be able to hang within the spread in this one. Auburn will look to slow the game down and grind it out against Florida, who has picked up two straight wins.

Tonight the Gators win again at home, but Auburn should be able to stay close.

Free Pick: Florida 65, Auburn 59
