The college football betting odds have the Vanderbilt Commodores favored at a -4 points spread against the Tennessee Volunteers going into their match up this coming Saturday. The spread is close for a reason, as both teams have their own set of strengths and weaknesses. When it comes to the Volunteers, they have a offense, and passing game in particular, while the Commodores can stop most anything that comes their way with their tenacious and hungry defense.
The Tennessee Volunteers have scored the 20th most points in all of college football as of this week’s match ups. They have managed an average of 37 points per game and have not relented at all throughout the course of the year. A large part of why they have played so well on the offensive side of the ball is because they have found a way to get things rolling when it comes to receiving yards. Overall, they have thrown for 334 yards this year and do not look to be slowing own. If Vanderbilt wants to stop them, they will need to dig deep and use their 16th ranked defense to fluster the Volunteers receiving core. Vanderbilt have allowed an average of just 18 points per game this season and will need to keep that going if they do not want this game to turn into a blowout. Tennessee certainly knows how to score points and will stop at nothing to get another point in their win column by the time that the game comes to an end this Saturday.
With such a close point spread, this game really comes down to which team can stop the others strong points. For Vanderbilt it will be their defense and for the Volunteers it will be their offense. Needless to say, this game is a must watch.
