Against The Spread Pick
The Volunteers are just trying to keep their NCAA hopes alive as they make a visit Auburn Arena to face the Tigers. Tennessee has been hit or misses with a 3-2 record in its last five games. Auburn’s two-game slide has knocked them behind Kentucky in the SEC standings. The Volunteers have covered the spread in 10 of the last 15 games against the Tigers. Auburn is also just 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Auburn Arena has been a hard-place to play all season, and the Tigers haven’t lost when playing at home this year. Auburn will likely pull out the win, but taking Tennessee to cover 6.5 points is the right play.
Over Under Pick
Tennessee has been far less efficient this season in scoring and it is really showing as they average less than 67 points per game. Meanwhile Auburn is among the best scoring teams in the country. When the Volunteers and Tigers last met they combined for an over 145-point total, as Auburn rolled to an 84-64 victory. Each of the last three meetings has all resulted in totals exceeding 145 points. Taking an over 135-point total is the right move.
