Can No. 18 Tennessee pick up a double-digit win at home when the Vols host Ole Miss tonight at 6PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Tennessee is favored at home today, as the Vols are getting odds of -10 points against Ole Miss. The over/under total for the game is listed at 145.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee and will air live on the SEC Network.
Tennessee is riding a four-game win streak right now following an 84-61 victory over LSU this week. Tennessee is now 16-5 overall, 6-3 in the SEC and 12-7 against the spread. The Volunteers are averaging 77 points per game on offense this season while giving up 67.3 points per game. Grant Williams is leading Tennessee with 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game while Admiral Schofield is adding 12.4 points and 6 rebounds per contest.
Ole Miss is coming off a 79-70 loss to Auburn at home for its fourth loss in five games. The Rebels are 11-11 overall, 4-5 in the SEC and 9-12 against the spread. Ole Miss is putting up 78.1 points per game while allowing 76 per contest. Deandre Burnett is leading Ole Miss this season with 15.2 points and 4.5 assists per game while Terence Davis is adding 13.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
Ole Miss has won three of its last four meetings with Tennessee, but the Vols are 4-2 against the spread in the last six meetings. Tennessee has been on a nice run in SEC play, winning six of their last seven. The lone loss was by four points on the road. At home, the Vols are 4-0 in conference with three covers. I think they handle an Ole Miss team that has struggled to get on track all year. The public betting is strongly backing the Vols tonight as well.
