Tennessee vs Kansas Game Info

2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
No. 22 Tennessee Volunteers (4-1) vs. No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks (6-0)
Date: Friday, Nov. 25, 2022
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Imperial Arena — Nassau, Bahamas
Coverage: ESPN

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Friday, Nov. 25 with a Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis matchup between a pair of ranked schools as the No. 22 Tennessee Volunteers go one-on-one with the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks.

USC gave Tennessee a run for its money on Thursday before the Volunteers walked out with the 73-66 victory in overtime. Kanas also needed overtime for its 69-68 win against Wisconsin yesterday, leaving many wondering if we're in for another marathon tonight.

Can Tennessee hand the Jayhawks their first loss of the season? Or will Kansas remain perfect with another Battle 4 Atlantis victory?

Tennessee vs Kansas Prediction & Pick

Even though Kansas is undefeated, it isn't like the team has been head-and-shoulders better than its opponents. The Jayhawks only have a plus-4.3 average scoring differential in their last three games, whereas the Volunteers own a plus-21.3 mark in that stretch.

Kansas is also only 1-5 against the spread (ATS) this fall on top of being 1-4 ATS in its last five outings against SEC schools. Although Tennessee is only marginally better with a 2-4 ATS mark thus far, the Vols are 4-1 ATS against their last five Big 12 opponents.

The Jayhawks had issues scoring against USC and now must face the 17th-best scoring defense in the nation. With Tennessee also owning the eighth-best defensive efficiency, I just don't see Kansas getting much going tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Tennessee: 70 | Kansas: 64

Tennessee vs Kansas Best Bet

Even if there won't be a ton of offense tonight, both teams should be able to hit the over on the 132.5-point total. After all, it's a mark that Tennessee and Kansas have surpassed in each of their previous six meetings, averaging a final total of 153.5 points.
