The UConn Huskies and Vanderbilt Commodores face off on Saturday in a Week 5 college football showdown at Vanderbilt Stadium. When these two teams faced off in September of 2011, Vanderbilt won 24-21. 

Vanderbilt has really struggled this season and their only win came against Colorado State and even that game was only by three points. Vanderbilt has losses to East Tennessee State, Stanford, and Georgia. In the last game Vanderbilt’s offense couldn’t get on the board, which led to a 62-0 defeat at the hands of Georgia. Vanderbilt is averaging 12.5 points while their defense is giving up 36.8 points. Under center for Vanderbilt is Ken Seals who has thrown for 561 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions. The top rusher for Vanderbilt is Re’Mahn Davis who currently has 211 yards and one touchdown. 

On the other side of this matchup is the UConn Huskies who sit with an 0-5 record, but they almost pulled out their first win in the last game. UConn was actually leading into the 4th quarter, but they were outscored 14-9 and that led to the 22-20 loss. UConn is averaging 14.2 points while their defense is giving up 41.6 points. The starting quarterback in the last game was Tyler Phommachanh and it looks like he will get the start again in this game. On the season he has thrown for 280 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.

UConn is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games played as underdogs. Vanderbilt is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games as an underdog. The under is 4-1 in UConn’s last five games against the SEC. The over is 5-2 in Vanderbilt’s last seven games at home. 

There are a lot better games on the board than this one, but just because it’s a bad game doesn’t mean there is value. UConn’s offense is bad, and so is Vanderbilt’s. I expect bad offense is going to trump bad defenses, and that will lead to this game staying under the total.
