Opening line: Alabama -4; Over/Under 146
Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (ESPN)

UPDATE 11 A.M. ET SUNDAY: A couple of hours before tipoff, BetMGM has Alabama a 5.5-point chalk on the SEC Tournament betting board. That's a 2-point jump from Saturday evening's -3.5 opener, with the line going to Crimson Tide -4.5 late Saturday, and this morning going to -5.5 (-105), where it sits now.

Point-spread ticket count is 3/1 and spread money almost 4/1 on Alabama. Moneyline play is weighted toward the Tide (-210), as well, with tickets 2/1 and money 2.5/1.

The total opened at 145.5 and initially backed up to 144.5 late Saturday night. But by midmorning, it jumped to 146.5, with 62% of tickets/68% of cash on the Over.

UPDATE 6:30 P.M. ET SATURDAY: Alabama is not only the No. 1 seed and favorite in SEC Tournament odds, but also the fourth-ranked team in the country. With that lofty status, the Crimson Tide are also near the top of the March Madness odds board, even with serious off-court issues surrounding the program.

In Saturday's tourney semis, Alabama let No. 4 seed Missouri hang around into the first few minutes of the second half. But the Crimson Tide (28-5 SU, 18-14-1 ATS) then steadily pulled away for a 72-61 victory to cover as 9.5-point favorites.

'Bama has covered in both its SEC Tourney games, after failing to cash in its last four regular-season games and five of its last six.

Texas A&M (25-8 SU, 23-10 ATS) didn't have nearly as much trouble with No. 6 seed Vanderbilt. The Aggies rumbled to a 49-25 halftime lead, then coasted to an 87-75 victory laying 5.5 points.

A&M is on a 10-1 SU and ATS tear. That includes a 67-61 home win giving 1.5 points to Alabama in the March 4 regular-season closer, the only meeting this season between the two teams.

Caesars Sports opened Alabama -4 this evening, with a total of 146. There's been no movement on the spread, but the total is down a tick to 145.5. Check back through Sunday's tipoff for updates on odds, action and betting splits.
