The Tennessee Volunteers and the Georgia Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from Stegeman Coliseum on Wednesday.
Tennessee is sitting at 10-5 so far. After losing consecutive games versus Wisconsin and LSU, the Volunteers have gotten wins in their last pair versus Missouri and South Carolina.
In the win over the Gamecocks, Tennessee’s John Fulkerson had 15 points with 10 rebounds. Santiago Vescovi had 13 points with three rebounds and three assists there, and Josiah-Jordan James had 10 points with six boards.
Over on the Georgia side, they’re 10-5 this year as well. Following four straight wins over SMU, GA Southern, Austin Peay and Memphis, the Bulldogs have lost their last pair to Kentucky and Auburn.
In the loss to the Tigers, Georgia’s Anthony Edwards topped the team on 18 points with three rebounds and three assists. Rayshaun Hammonds added 12 points with nine rebounds and one assist there as well.
Georgia is 1-4 ATS in their last five Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss. The over is 4-0 in the Bulldogs’ last four Wednesday games and 7-2 in their last nine home games.
Meanwhile, the Vols are 1-6-1 ATS in the last eight Wednesday games and 2-6 ATS in the last eight overall. The over is 14-3 in Tennessee’s last 17 road games and 13-3 in their last 16 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Tennessee had a little trouble putting away a mediocre Gamecocks team, but to the Vols’ credit they regrouped and had a pretty good second half for a 56-55 victory. Still, it was the fourth straight game Tennessee has finished below 70 points.
Georgia hasn’t seen the other side of 70 themselves in three games, but they’ve also faced a string of ranked opponents in that time. I’m going to go with the Bulldogs having a good game here and covering.
