7:00 PM EST. The Volunteers are the #1 team in the nation for the first time in over a decade. They have won 12 games in a row and their only blemish was an 87-81 overtime loss to #9 Kansas at Barclays Center in Brooklyn back in November. Tennessee isn't just winning games, but it is blowing teams out of the water by covering spreads of 32, 13, and 14 points with ease while also winning eight of its last nine by double-digits. You will now pay a massive premium to get behind them.
This line stinks, as this game is priced like the Commodores actually have a chance to win. We doubt many in the market would give them the same amount of respect oddsmakers have here, especially after getting whacked by Mississippi State 71-55 on Saturday as a small pooch. Vandy is now 0-5 to start conference play, which has their stock trading at a season low, while the Vols are obviously at their peak and that’s all we care about. Trust us when we suggest that the oddsmakers didn’t put up a bad number on the #1 team in the country. Win or lose, this is what fades are made of when the #1 team is not named Michigan State, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas or Gonzaga.
