The Georgia Bulldogs (16-16, 5-13 CONF) and the Florida Gators (19-12, 11-7 CONF) will meet on Thursday, March 12th for the 2nd Round of the SEC Conference Tournament. The game will be played at a neutral site location at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, and the game is scheduled for a 3:00 PM ET start time. 

Georgia defeated Ole Miss in the 1st Round of the tournament, 81-63. Georgia is the type of team that could make a sneaky run through this SEC Tourney, as they have some pieces that can be electric at times. Florida has a bye in the 1st Round of the tournament and they understand completely that this will not be an easy game against Georgia. Florida ended their regular season with a heartbreaking one-point loss to Kentucky in a game where they led by double-digits for a large part of it.

The line has not been released yet, therefore I will make my final score prediction and update this article in the morning. Florida beat Georgia twice this season, and I do not see them having too many troubles in this one. Georgia should keep it close at the half, but I think Florida will prevail in the end. Florida wins 67-59

UPDATE: I will take the under, as there is no room for me to take a side based on my final score prediction.
