Furman vs. Tennessee Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Furman vs. Tennessee 12/20/17

Can No. 21 Tennessee bounce back from its loss this weekend when the Volunteers play host to Furman tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Tennessee is favored at home in this game, as the Volunteers are getting odds of -14 points against Furman. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 146.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Thompson-Boiling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee and will air live on the SEC Network.

Tennessee is coming off a 78-73 loss to UNC this weekend to fall to 7-2 on the season. The Volunteers are 4-3 against the spread, failing to cover in their last two games. Tennessee is averaging 78.7 points per game on offense while giving up just 67 per game on defense. Grant Williams is leading the team with 16 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while Admiral Schofield is adding 11.7 points per contest.

Furman is riding a five-game winning streak entering tonight’s game. The Paladins are 9-3 on the season and 4-2 against the spread. Furman has covered in its last three lined games. The Paladins are averaging 77.2 points per game on offense while allowing 74.3 per game on defense. Furman is being led by Devin Sibley, who is averaging 15.7 points per game while Matt Rafferty is adding 11.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Furman vs. Tennessee

These two have no recent meetings to consider tonight. Furman has covered the spread in 10 of its last 13 non-conference games and 12 of its last 17 following a win. The Vols are coming off a tough loss, but haven’t been able to cover in their last two. Furman has been able to be competitive and I think they will play strong tonight and keep this game close. The public betting is siding heavily with Tennessee, but I like Furman to cover.
