Tennessee vs Pittsburgh Prediction & Pick
A good match-up for Tennessee, who plays with redemption following last year's early season loss to Pitt, 41-34. The oddsmakers are not fooled by the rankings or Pitt's win last week. Tennessee can stretch the field against Pitt's press coverage and senior QB Hendon Hooker will have success through the air. Tennessee can balance the attack after rushing 51 times for 218 yards last week. Pitt allowed 190 rushing yards to West Virginia, and the Vols figure to control the trenches and make more big plays in victory.
Final Score Prediction: Tennessee: 37 | Pittsburgh 24

This is a tricky spread as bettors will react to last week's results and how they saw Pitt struggle and pull out a fortunate win over rival West Virginia. But Pitt's well-regarded offensive and defensive line was out-played last week, and Tennessee is stronger. Vols coach Josh Heupel's offense is set to outscore last year's team that averaged 39.3 points per game.
