The Vols are coming off a humiliating 30-6 home loss to the arch rival Florida Gators and did not even come close to covering the NCAA betting line for the game. On the other side of the gridiron, the Tigers are coming off of a close 26-21 home loss to LSU and need a win to salvage any chance for an SEC West title.
Last Saturday in Neyland Stadium, the Vols fell behind 17-0 in the first quarter and were never in the game against #4 Florida. The defense was solid in holding Heisman Trophy winning QB Tim Tebow to 122 total yards and the high octane Gator offense to only 243 total yards.
However, the offense and special teams were horrible all game long and set up Florida in scoring position the entire afternoon. QB Jonathan Crompton again looked very erratic and put up pedestrian numbers (18/28 for 162 yards and one interception). With the loss, Tennessee is now 0-3 ATS for college football betting fans against the closing football betting line so far in ‘08.
This game against Tennessee is Auburn’s fourth home game already this young football season. Against LSU last week, the difference was the success of the running games. While Auburn combined to have 36 carries for 70 yards, the LSU rushing attack racked up 178 yards on 38 carries in their win.
QB Chris Todd did show some leadership in throwing for 250 yards and a touchdown, but his two interceptions proved costly in Auburn’s defeat. After starting the college football wagering season with a win and a cover against Louisiana-Monroe, the Tigers have now lost three consecutive games ATS per the closing NCAA odds.
Currently, the NCAA lines have the Tigers as a 6.5-point home favorite in this game. Whether you are a veteran or new to the game, the place for all your sports betting in 2008 is Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook, your home for the NCAA and pro football gambling seasons.
