Auburn vs Tennessee Betting Prediction

Tennessee comes into this matchup on a four game winning streak and they have scored at least 86 points in three of those wins. The Volunteers are 13-1 at home, while Auburn is just 4-4 on the road. The Tigers have been a bit inconsistent in recent games, but they do have a higher shooting percentage than Tennessee this season. The Volunteers have been pretty dominant on their home floor for most of the season and I think their defense is going to step up here. Take Tennessee to continue rolling at home.
