Tennessee is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 6-2-1 in Tennessee’s last 9 games. Auburn is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games following an ATS win. The under is 4-0 in Auburn’s last 4 Saturday games. The underdog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 head to head meetings.
Auburn is coming off of a very disappointing loss against Alabama in their last game, but this is a huge chance for them to solidify their spot in the tournament. Tennessee has won two games in a row, but they have had some issues on the road this year. Both teams have similar metrics but Tennessee is the much better defensive team. I think we are going to see a desperate Auburn team and I like them to get the home win.
