Tennessee vs. Auburn Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Matt Fargo: March 5th 2014

College Basketball Betting Pick: Auburn +4.5 -110 odds (March 5th 2014)

Despite an 18-11 record overall including 9-7 in the SEC, Tennessee is on the inside of the proverbial bubble for the NCAA Tournament. The Volunteers have an RPI of 54 which has them on very thin ice so they cannot afford to lose any marginal games and this would be considered a bad loss. Tennessee is coming off a 38-point trouncing of Vanderbilt on Saturday as it doubled up the Commodores. Vanderbilt’s 38 points are the fewest scored by an opponent in Thompson-Boling Arena history. While this game is important for obvious reasons, coming off that game will be a challenge. Tennessee is just 3-7 on the road both straight up and against the number while going 1-3 ATS as a road favorite. Auburn meanwhile is coming off a big loss at Alabama and that was a big revenge game for the Tide as they were roughed up badly in the first meeting in Auburn. Now the Tigers are back home where they are 12-5 on the season including wins in four of their last six. Additionally, this the final home game for senior starters Chris Denson, Asauhn Dixon-Tatum and Allen Payne and they will also be out for revenge following an 11-point loss at Tennessee back in January. Tennessee is 6-15 ATS in its last 21 games after allowing 25 points or less in the first half last game while Auburn is 24-11 ATS in its last 25 games after trailing in their previous game by 15 or more points at the half and those two opposite efforts leads to this contrarian play on Wednesday where Auburn should come away with the outright upset.

Florida vs. Tennessee Basketball Betting Pick & Odds from Jack Jones: February 11th 2014

Basketball Betting Pick: Tennessee +2.5 -110 odds (February 11th 2014)

At 15-8 on the season, the Tennessee Volunteers are certainly a bubble team in terms of making the NCAA Tournament. A win over Florida today would clearly put them on the right side of the bubble going forward.

The Vols will not be lacking any motivation after suffering their worst loss of the season in a 41-67 setback at Florida in their first meeting of the season when absolutely nothing went right. However, the Vols had won three straight over the Gators prior to that defeat despite being a 7.5-plus point underdog in all three contests.

Tennessee has been a dominant home team this season, It is 11-2 in all home games, outscoring opponents by an average of 16.8 points per game. It has impressive home wins over the likes of Virginia (87-52), Arkansas (81-74) and Ole Miss (86-70) this year to name a few.

The Vols are 14-3 ATS versus good rebounding teams that outrebound their opponents by four-plus boards per game over the past two seasons. That’s because they are a great rebounding team themselves, outrebounding opponents by nine boards per game this year.

Tennessee is 8-1 ATS as a home underdog or pick over the last three seasons. Dating back further, the Vols are 24-5 ATS as a home dog of 6 points or less in their last 29 games in this situation. Tennessee is 9-1 ATS revenging a loss where it scored less than 60 points over the last three years. Bet the Volunteers Tuesday.

College Football Pick: Matt Fargo advises to bet Tennessee +10 on November 2nd 2013

College Football Picks: November 2nd 2013
Tennessee Volunteers vs. Missouri Tigers
Prediction: Tennessee +10

We played against Tennessee last Saturday and it lost big in Alabama which we expected after coming off an upset the previous week at home against South Carolina. The Volunteers hit the road for a second straight week but this time we will be on them as they are getting a very favorable line in my opinion. Yes, Tennessee is winless on the road but two of the losses came against the top two teams in the BCS rankings and in the other, it was able to stay within the number at Florida. The quarterback situation is the concern as Justin Worley was hurt last week and will be out a few weeks while Joshua Dobbs takes over the starting duties. He was decent in backup role last week and with a week of preparation, he will be fine. His teammates say they have no doubt he’s ready as they’ve marveled at the poise Dobbs has shown since arriving on campus. His mobility gives Tennessee’s offense an element it lacked with Worley and Missouri has no idea how to prepare. This play is also based on the Missouri loss last week and how difficult it is going to be to recover from. The Tigers jumped to a 14-0 halftime lead, and carried a 17-0 lead into the fourth quarter, only to see Gamecocks quarterback Connor Shaw come off the bench to engineer a big comeback to force overtime on a touchdown pass with just 42 seconds left in regulation. The game ended in double overtime when kicker Andrew Baggett’s 24-yard field goal attempt was no good when it hit off the left upright to give South Carolina the win. Missouri was 7-0 at the time and had its sights set on really big things but all that hope is gone and letting that go will be near impossible to do. Tigers quarterback Maty Mauk is expected to make his third career start this week, but James Franklin was upgraded to questionable as his separated throwing shoulder continues to heal. The offense struggled last week and I expect that to carry over here. Tennessee falls into a great situation as we play on road underdogs after a game where they forced one or less turnovers against opponent after three consecutive games where they forced three or more turnovers. This situation is 61-26 ATS (70.1 percent) since 1992. Additionally, the Volunteers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game. Play (335) Tennessee Volunteers

Memphis vs. Tennessee College Basketball Prediction: January 4th 2013

Memphis vs. Tennessee
College Basketball Prediction: January 4th 2013
Pick: Tennessee -2

The Tennessee Volunteers should be a bigger home favorite tonight against the Memphis Tigers. I’ll gladly back the Vols at this price as they look to remain unbeaten on their home floor this year.

Tennessee is off to an 8-3 start this year, which includes a perfect 6-0 home record. Its only losses have come on the road to Oklahoma State, Georgetown and Virginia. It has even beaten a very good Wichita State team as well as Xavier at home this year.

Memphis comes in overvalued due to its 9-3 start, which features very few impressive wins. Its three losses have comes to Louisville, Minnesota and Virginia Commonwealth, all by 9 points or more. Somehow, the Tigers have yet to play a true road game as this will be their first one tonight. That first true road game is always tough for any team.

The Vols want revenge from two losses to Memphis last season, including a 99-97 overtime setback on a neutral court. Neither of those losses were at Tennessee last year, so they’ll relish this opportunity for payback at home tonight.

Memphis is 0-6 ATS after playing 3 consecutive home games over the last 3 seasons. Tennessee is 6-0 ATS in home games after scoring 55 points or less over the last 2 seasons. The Tigers are 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 non-conference games. The Vols are 15-4 ATS in their last 19 home games overall. Bet Tennessee Friday.

College Football Picks: Tennessee vs. Mississippi State: October 13th 2012

College Football Picks: October 13th 2012
Tennessee vs. Mississippi State
Pick: Tennessee +3

Mississippi State is 5-0 but it hasn’t played anybody yet. Tennessee is 3-2 but its losses came to Florida and Georgia – teams currently ranked in the top 15. The Vols also have an impressive 35-21 win over an NC State team that upset Florida State.

Tennessee has had a bye week to prepare for this game, and it’s hungry for a signature win. Because it has been battle tested early, I believe it can go into Starkville and come out with a “W”.

The Vols have won 6 in a row against the Bulldogs with each of those coming by at least 10 points.

Mississippi State has been good defensively against weak competition. They rank 11th in the country in scoring defense with 13.4 points allowed per game. However, it is worth noting that Tennessee is 13-4 ATS in its last 17 road games versus good defensive teams that give up 14 points or less per game. The Vols have only lost by an average of .4 points in this situation.

Much of Mississippi State’s early success can be traced back to the turnovers it has been able to force. The Vols know a thing or two about forcing turnovers as well. The fact they’ve come up with 3 takeaways in each of their last two games is significant. Consider that plays on road teams when the line is +3 to -3 after 2 consecutive games where they forced 3 or more turnovers are 24-4 ATS the last 5 seasons. This system tightens up to a perfect 9-0 ATS the last 3 seasons.

Tennessee has one of the most explosive offenses in the country. It averages over 506 yards per game and might be averaging over 600 yards per game had it played Mississippi State’s schedule. I’ll take the points as I believe the Tennessee offense will be a little too much for the Bulldogs.
