Saint Peter’s vs Tennessee prediction

The Saint Peter’s Peacocks enter the tournament playing their best ball of the season, which includes three straight wins. Saint Peter’s has also covered 8 of its last 10 games and has outright won 4 of its last 5 games as an underdog. With that said, Saint Peter’s is one of the worst offensive teams in the tournament, shooting under 40 percent from the field and ranked 339th in points per game. The Tennessee Volunteers and third in defensive field goal percentage, so don't expect this to be the game where the Peacocks break out offensively. This has the potential to be an ugly, lopsided first round game. Give me the Tennessee Volunteers in a beat down.
