Auburn Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers Betting Pick

A pair of Top 12 teams will get together on Wednesday in Knoxville. The Auburn Tigers are on the road at the Tennessee Volunteers. Both teams come into the game with a 21-6 record on the season. Auburn is 6-4 in their last 10 games, and coming off a blowout win on the road at Georgia. In that game, the Tigers scored 97 points.

For Tennessee, they have moved into a spot where they could grab the fourth and final #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Volunteers are 21-6, and have won four straight games. Tennessee has won 8 out of their last 10 games.

Tennessee is -6 at home in this game over Auburn.

Tigers Seeking Road Upset

Bruce Pearl and the Auburn Tigers are 4-2 in February, with their two losses both on the road. They lost at Florida by 16 and Kentucky by 11. The Tigers will look to break their road struggles with another tough test; this time in Knoxville.

Auburn is putting together quite an offensive season. The Tigers are scoring more than 82 points per game. They shoot the basketball at a 47% clip, and make 8 three point shots per game. The Tigers are also over 75% from the free throw line.

The top scorer for the Tigers this season has been Johni Broome. He is scoring more than 16 points per game. Auburn after this game will host Mississippi State, play at Missouri and then finish at home against Georgia.

Volunteers Looking to Stay Hot

The last time Rick Barnes and his Tennessee Volunteers lost was February 10th at Texas A+M. Since then, they have won four straight games. In February, the Volunteers are 6-1. Three of their last four wins have come by 29+ points. The lone close game was against the last place team in the conference; Missouri, by 5.

The Volunteers are scoring 80.3 points per game as a team. They are also one of the top rebounding teams in the country; as they are averaging over 36 per game. The top offensive threats for the Volunteers have been Dalton Knecht, and Jonas Aidoo. Knecht is scoring more than 20 points per game, and playing less than 30 minutes per game. Aidoo is adding 12 per game.

Tennessee finishes the regular season with back to back road games at Alabama and South Carolina, and then goes home to host Kentucky. This final stretch of four games is likely one of the toughest in all of College Basketball.

Volunteers Win at Home

The Volunteers are going to win this game at home. Bruce Pearl and his Auburn team have had a great season, and will be tough to beat in the SEC tournament, and also in the big dance. But, for now, with this game being played in Knoxville, we like the Volunteers.

The final bet for this game on Wednesday is the Tennessee Volunteers -6 over the Auburn Tigers. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your NCAA Basketball betting!
