LINE: Tennessee -22, o/u: 47.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
You always like those point total games when one team has an honest shot of hitting the mark by itself.
The Tennessee offense isn’t explosive, and it’s not going to score 48 points, but …
Charlotte gave up 45 to Appalachian State earlier this year, and UMass hung up 49 on the board in a win.
The 49ers were able to keep the loss to UAB loss, and there’s a concern over the lack of an offense that won’t help the cause. Three of the last four games haven’t hit 47.5, however, none of those games came against a motivated Power Five team looking for a blowout win in front of the home crowd.
Tennessee needs this as it has to keep on pushing to get to six wins and a bowl game. After losing two straight and three of the last four, it’s going to open it up.
You’re not asking for much. All Tennessee has to do is get to around 35 points. The D will give up at least ten, and close to 14.
Seven of Tennessee’s eight games have gone past 47.5 without a problem.
