The Auburn Tigers will travel to play the Tennessee Volunteers in a SEC game on Saturday.

The Tennessee Volunteers are 20-7 (11-4) this season and have won six of their last seven games. Tennessee defeated Missouri by a score of 80-61 in their last game. Tennessee held Missouri to 36.5% shooting from the field and was +6 in rebounding margin in the game. Kennedy Chandler led the Volunteers with 23 points and 8 rebounds in the win.

Auburn is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The over is 13-4 in Auburn’s last 17 Saturday games. Tennessee is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. The under is 5-1 in Tennessee’s last 6 home games against a team with a winning road record. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
This is going to be another great game on Saturday between two of the top four teams in the SEC. Auburn dropped a game to Florida before beating Ole Miss, while Tennessee dropped a game to Arkansas before beating Missouri. Tennessee has played great defense this season, but is facing one of the best offenses in the SEC. Tennessee defeated Kentucky at home a few games ago and I think this will be a similar game. I like the Volunteers.
