Belated March 17 SEC Tournament final picks

Eds Note — In the deluge of preparing for the NCAA Tournament, I forgot to post my picks for the SEC Tourney final between Auburn and Florida. A link to the preview is posted for transparency purposes.

These are the condensed versions of picks for Saturday’s college basketball games for Winners and Whiners. A link to the full preview is below, and confidence ratings are in parentheses.
