While there is little doubt Tennessee has the better team and will win at home outright, there is doubt about covering the number. Samford has covered the nut in 10 of its last 11 and in each of its last 6 on the road. Tennessee has failed to cover 6 of its last 8 against teams from the Southern Conference. Final Score Prediction, Tennessee Volunteers win but fall short ATS 88-61.
