Tennessee +28.5 @ Carbon Sportsbook

The Volunteers know that they are going to have their work cut out for them in this game, but I have a sneaking suspicion that they are going to stick in front of this number. This team under the direction of Head Coach Butch Jones is going to be competitive this year in the SEC, and I’d be surprised if this club didn’t get back to a bowl game this year. The question is going to be whether the defense is going to be able to slow down this offense at all, knowing that DT Mo Couch, arguably the best player along that front four, is out of the lineup after being declared ineligible by the university.

To me though, this is more of a bet against Oregon than on Tennessee. The Ducks are square each and every week, and this week is no exception whatsoever. Yes, last season, Oregon closed out the season covering eight of its last 10 games, and there were really only a few games in which the offense didn’t come forward with just gobs of points. That will be the case in this one again as well. Oregon is going to score, and it is probably going to score in the 40s. That said, it’s going to take playing some defense as well to get the job done, and I really don’t know at this point whether the Ducks can play ‘D’ or not. They did allow 24 to Oregon State, 51 to USC, and 21 to three other Pac-12 opponents last season, and I’ve got to think if UT can get to 21 in this one, it will be good enough to cover.

Play Tennessee +28.5
