The Vols are 1-4 ATS in their last five at home and 0-4 ATS in their last four Tuesday games. Tennessee is 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Hose are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight overall. The under is 4-1 in Presbyterian’s last five overall.
PICK: I’m probably going to try Presbyterian in this one. Tennessee is coming off 50.8 percent from the field with 31 rebounds and 21 team assists against Tennessee Tech; some nice totals after a slow start. The stage is set for another victory here if the Vols keep it going.
Still, the Hose have put up some pretty decent offensive numbers in most of their games this year, with 68 or more points in four of seven outings. If Presbyterian gets going early I can see them keeping the pace.
