The Volunteers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in November and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Commodores are 8-22 ATS in their last 30 home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games in November. The over is 13-4 in Volunteers last 17 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Commodores last 5 games overall. The Volunteers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Vanderbilt and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

The Tennessee Volunteers obviously have the horses to blow the doors off here, but the loss to quarterback Hendon Hooker throws a monkey wrench into everything. The Vols aren’t nearly as good with a backup in place, and who knows just how the team as a whole is feeling. It’s a crushing blow. The Vanderbilt Commodores aren’t good, but they should have a packed house with a top-5 school coming to town. It’s a rivalry game, and the Commodores become bowl eligible with a victory. Also, there are 32 seniors on this roster. Give me the points.
