Tennessee vs LSU Prediction & Pick

Tennessee was so solid and strong in their 38-33 win over Florida. The Vols rushed for 227 yards and passed for 349. Quarterback Hayden Hooker is passing for nearly 300 yards per game with 2 TD passes in each game and yet to toss an interception. He's currently the highest-rated quarterback in the SEC. Despite missing leading receiver Cedric Tillman last game and not as likely to play vs LSU after ankle surgery, Tennessee continues to roll up points and yards at 48 PPG and 559 YPG.

LSU is 2-0 in SEC play following last Saturday's 21-17 win at Auburn. But the Bayou Bengals were outgained 438-270 in that contest and LSU allowed 337 passing yards on just 50% completions by the Auburn quarterback. New LSU coach Brian Kelly will need to get his players best performance to take down Tennessee, and try to attack the Vols weak secondary that is without CB Warren Burrell the rest of the season with an upper-body injury. But JC transfer CB Dee Williams is set to make his Volunteers debut this week and help a pass defense that has allowed 309 passing yards per game.

Final Score Prediction: Tennessee: 35 | LSU: 23

Tennessee vs LSU Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels has only passed for 210 and 80 yards against Mississippi State and Auburn, and he's been sacked 15 times this season. Daniels also leads the Tigers in rushing with 315 yards. Louisiana State Coach Brian Kelly says the Tigers offense has been conservative, but working towards being more aggressive. The Tigers defense has been the difference in victory, but Tennessee has far more firepower and an underrated defense allowing just 19 points per game.

Tennessee is the fastest-paced offense in the SEC and top-3 in the country with talented receivers on an offense leading the country averaging 559 yards per game including 365 YPG passing. That style can also impact the defense having to be on the field more.

The linemaker got this one right making the Volunteers the road favorite, and Tennessee is tied with Ohio State and Alabama as the country's highest scoring teams averaging 48 points per game.

Bet: Tennessee -2.5 (-115)
