Who We Like: Even though Mississippi State’s offense was firing on all cylinders last night versus LSU, this is a good spot to take the under. Tennessee re-established itself defensively in the final four games of the regular season, holding three teams to less than 40 percent shooting. The under is 4-0 in the Volunteers’ last four games overall, is 5-1 in their last six games coming off a win, and is 9-2 in their last 11 games following an ATS loss. On the other side, the under is 5-2 in the Bulldogs’ last seven games versus a team with a winning record and is 11-5 in their last 16 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
