Bold Predictions for Tennessee vs Arkansas
Tennessee Wins By 1-10
The Volunteers are struggling a bit, covering the spread just twice in their last eight games. I think they’ll win though, and love getting +164 odds on the margin being between 1-10. That gives us a cushion in case it’s close and the Vols don’t cover but still win.
Tennessee has the country’s best defense, ranking first in opponent effective field goal percentage (41%). The Vols are one of the nation’s best offensive-rebounding teams as well, a brutal combination for opponents.
Trust Tennessee to get back on track with a win between 1-10 points at home.
Santiago Vescovi Scores 15+
Vescovi is coming off a dreadful seven-point performance against South Carolina in which he shot 1-of-9 from beyond the arc. The last time he shot that poorly from beyond the arc (1-of-6 against Auburn), he promptly went 4/8 from three-point range and dropped 14 points.
He scored 14 points against Arkansas last season and should get plenty of opportunities to score in this one. The key for Vescovi is getting to the free-throw line. He scored at least 15 points in each of the last two games he attempted at least four free throws and Arkansas ranks 308th in opponent free throw rate (38.1%).
Trust Vescovi to clear his points total thanks to a strong performance at the charity stripe.
Zakai Zeigler Has a Big Night
Zeigler had 13 points, six assists, and five rebounds coming off the bench against the Razorbacks last year and I expect a similar performance tonight. His points + rebounds + assist prop is way too low in my eyes.
Say what you will about his decision-making, but Zeigler shows up in big moments. He had 22 points and 10 assists against Texas, 15 and 8 against Alabama, and 13 and 11 against South Carolina. The dude’s a gamer, and you can trust him to show up tonight.
