College Basketball Betting Trends

Tennessee 

The Volunteers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games. Tennessee is 1-5 ATS in its last six neutral site games.

VCU

The Rams are 18-7-1 ATS in its last 26 Saturday games. Virginia Commonwealth is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Prediction:

The Vols are the slightly higher-ranked team and in my opinion the better team here. While both squads are stout defensively, Tennessee is the better offensive team and converting more opportunities down the stretch will likely be the difference here.
