The ASUN Conference tournament is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, and two teams are the far and away favorites.

The conference regular season champion Liberty is the favorite to win a trip to the dance at +130.

Jacksonville State has the second-best odds to win the tournament at +225.

The two teams have not played each other this season because they’re in different divisions in the conference.

KenPom rates the two squads as relatively equal. Liberty is the 115th best team in the country, according to the metric, while Jacksonville State is the 136th.

Liberty has the better offense overall, according to those advanced metrics. The Flames are 84th in the country at offense, ahead of a few tournament locks.

The only major movers have been Bellarmine, which moved from +1400 underdogs to +1000 dogs right after open.

Bellarmine had been tied for fifth in the conference but now has sole possession of fourth-best favorites.
