NCAA Basketball Betting Trends

Washington

The Huskies are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games versus the SEC. Washington is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games overall. 

Tennessee

The Volunteers are 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games. Tennessee is 1-5 ATS in its last six games overall.

Prediction:

The Volunteers might be the team here that is not ranked, but I think they are the better squad. Washington benefited last season from a soft PAC-12 schedule and I don't trust it offensively to keep up with a talented Vols squad that will look to build off their awesome second half last game. I'm taking Tennessee in this spot.
