College Football Betting Lines: Tennessee Huge Choice over Vandy

The Tennessee Volunteers are 27.5-point favorites over the Vanderbilt Commodores. The over-under is set at 56.5 points in this rivalry matchup for The Volunteer State. Let’s get into my college football predictions today for the Nov. 25 SEC contest.

When looking at the history of this series, you see a lot of orange as the Vols have dominated the rivalry. Tennessee has won the last four games.

As the spread indicates, Vandy faces a tall task in trying to break this streak in 2023. Prior to Tennessee’s latest run, the Commodores had a rare winning streak in the series with three straight victories from 2016-18.

Here is a look at my college football picks for Vanderbilt-Tennessee.

Commodores Are Struggling

Vanderbilt has lost nine straight games. The Commodores would love revenge for the 56-0 thumping at the hands of the Vols last November.

Tennessee is looking to bounce back from a 38-10 loss to Georgia in Week 12. The Volunteers are coming off two straight blowout losses. Notably, Tennessee quarterback Joe Milton has thrown one touchdown pass over the last two games.

Vanderbilt-Tennessee Pick

Neither of these teams have quite lived up to preseason expectations. Admittedly, the Vols have a higher bar as a potential SEC contender heading into the season.

I’ve been looking for reasons to back Vandy in this matchup, and the only one I can find is Commodores superfan Nate Bargatze. For as funny as Bargatze is, this matchup has Tennessee team blowout written all over it. Instead of a Vandy pick, here’s a funny bit about the Commodores.

After losing two straight games, facing Vanderbilt is going to feel like a breath of fresh air for Tennessee. The Volts have a strong history of beating up on lesser opponents this season.

Normally, I would run far away from a spread in a rivalry matchup that is close to four touchdowns. Bet online for the Vols to cover the massive spread.
