FanDuel’s Sportsbook set the win total of the Tennessee football team at 6.5 wins. Is that too high, too low, or just right?

On Tuesday afternoon FanDuel’s Sportsbook released their updated betting win totals for all the SEC teams. No surprise, Alabama and Georgia lead the win with a number of 11. I’d say both of those are pretty safe bets if you want to win a little bit of money.

Both Florida and LSU come in with a win total of nine. Mississippi State surprisingly is next with a number of 8.5, and Auburn rounds out the top six with a win total of eight.

FanDuel listed the Vols halfway down the list with a win total of 6.5. Is that too high, too low, or just the right spot?

Tennessee opens up the 2019 football season against Georgia State in what should be a for sure win. BYU and Chattanooga follow the opening game. The Vols should be 3-0 when they travel down to Gainesville, Florida to take on the Gators.

The Florida game begins a tough stretch of SEC opponents that ends with a matchup with South Carolina. Although it isn’t likely, the Vols could lose all five games, and that would make getting to six wins somewhat hard.

However, I doubt that happens. You would think getting to seven wins would be a safe bet, but I just can’t believe it until I see it. Most people will take the over of 6.5, but I’m not sure that is the safe bet at the moment.

This coaching staff has already taken huge strides in showing player development, and there is nothing that says that won’t continue. But, I’ve been burned by the Vols many times, and until I see it, I just can’t believe it.

FanDuel got this one right at 6.5. I certainly wouldn’t talk anyone out of taking the over. However, I would just advise you not to be surprised if the Vols finish 6-6 next season.
