Tennessee Volunteers Getting Closer to Kickoff
The college football season is set to begin later this month, and the Tennessee Volunteers are set to take the field on September 2 to kick off the year against Bowling Green.
Tennessee should have little trouble winning that first game as they are at least 33 point favorites at most of the sportsbooks in the state.
The Volunteers will have to turn things around in a hurry if they want to be competitive in the SEC this season as they managed to go just 3-7 a season ago. There were only two teams in the SEC that had worse records than the Volunteers, and Vanderbilt was one of those teams.
Josh Heupel is now the new man in charge at Tennessee, and the schedule is set up for him to get off to a good start with the Volunteers. Tennessee will play three straight home games to begin the season, with Pittsburgh and Tennessee Tech coming to Neyland Stadium after hosting Bowling Green.
Even though Tennessee is expected to show some signs of improvement this season, they don’t expect to be a major factor in the SEC title race. Alabama and Georgia continue to be the betting favorites to win the league with Texas A&M and Florida also expected to contend.
Tennessee is currently being offered at +10000 to win the SEC Championship in 2021, and they are at +3000 to win the East Division. The Volunteers can always find a way to pull off some upsets, but it would be a major shock to see them win the conference.
Alabama is currently the overwhelming favorite at -160 to win the SEC while Georgia is next on the list at +190. Both teams are also ranked in the top-five of the AP Preseason poll and should be in the mix to make the College Football Playoff. Mobile sports betting in Tennessee expects to see a lot of action this season.
The over/under for regular-season wins for the Volunteers is now set at 6.5 total wins, which would be a massive improvement over what took place a season ago. This is still well below the standards that used to be set at Tennessee, but the Volunteers have struggled to compete in the SEC.
Another Rough Year for Vanderbilt?
Life in the SEC has not been kind to the Vanderbilt Commodores and winning just one game has been a challenge some seasons. Vanderbilt was once a real threat to pull off some upsets in the mighty SEC, but the betting odds for 2021 don’t look too favorable.
Vanderbilt is currently listed at +25000 to win the East Division of the SEC, which means that a last-place finish is expected. South Carolina is the team listed just above Vanderbilt and the Gamecocks have odds listed at +10000.
The over/under for regular-season wins for Vanderbilt is currently set at 3.5 games, which means that the Commodores would have to win at least one SEC game to go over that total. Vanderbilt is on the road against Tennessee on November 27, 2021, and that could be a game that comes with plenty of betting importance.
