Tennessee Volunteers vs. Missouri Tigers Betting Odds
Tennessee is 23-9 on the year and is ranked #17 in the country. The Vols are averaging 71.9 points per game while shooting 43.5% from the field. They are the #5 seed in the SEC Tournament and knocked off Ole Miss yesterday 70-55 in the first round. In that game, Tennessee made ten 3-pointers and shot 47.1% from the field. Santiago Vescovi is the leader on this Tennessee team, averaging 12.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game.
Missouri is 23-8 this year and is ranked #25 in the country. The Tigers entered the SEC Tournament as the #4 seed and had the first-round bye. They are averaging 80.1 points per game and are shooting 47.7% from the floor. Kobe Brown is the leader of this team, averaging 15.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game this year. Brown is questionable today with an illness. If he cannot go, that would be a huge blow to this Missouri team.
Tennessee lost a close one in game one, but they are playing better and have their eyes set on winning the SEC. We need to monitor Kobe Brown’s status as game-time approaches; we may see some major line movement. Lock in Tennessee on the ML; even if Brown is able to play, how effective will he be? This will be an entertaining game, but I think the Vols will come out on top.
