Vanderbilt shot 16-of-48 from the floor, 5-of-23 from 3-point range and 16-of-21 from the free throw line.

Vols fall flat at Wildcats

Tennessee had its 19-game winning streak come to a close Saturday night with an 86-69 defeat at Kentucky.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Vanderbilt

The Commodores are 17-39 ATS in their last 56 games overall. Vanderbilt is 5-12 in its last 17 SEC games.

Prediction:

This is the perfect bounceback spot for Tennessee against a team it beat narrowly 88-83 in overtime on the road. Don't expect that much of a pushback from Vandy here. The Vols will be focused and ready to get rolling again after its setback at Kentucky. I can't imagine the Commodores can hang with the second-best offense in the nation in terms of adjusted offensive efficiency.
