The Vanderbilt Commodores will have their hands full tonight as they make the in-state voyage to Knoxville, TN to face the No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers, who are coming off a loss in their last game – an 86-69 drubbing on Saturday night at hands of the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats. 


The Volunteers look to get back on the good foot, listed as 17.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Sports Chat Place

No surprise here as Sports Chat Place follows ESPN BPI's lead and favors the Volunteers at -17.5 in this one – keep in mind, FanDuel Sportsbook has this line listed at 18.5. They believe Tennessee will come out angry after Saturday's embarrassing defeat and channel it toward a hapless Vandy squad that has yet to win a game in SEC play this season. 


The Spread

The Spread makes it a clean three-for-three sweep with Tennessee in this one. The Vols have the second-best offense in the nation, in terms of adjusted offensive efficiency, and that should be the difference against the Commodores in this one. 

All in all, it's looking like a straight orange affair in this one. According to the team's records, it appears like Vandy doesn't stand a chance Tuesday night, and the experts seem to agree.
