4* TOTAL NO BRAINER on Ole Miss/Tennessee UNDER

Ole Miss has been routing teams and that is setting up some value with this number for us to take advantage of today. The Rebels have scored 81+ points in four straight games and are averaging 83.1 ppg on the year. Last time out they trounced Fordham 95-68.

Tennessee on the other hand has been doing their damage on the defensive side of the floor. The Vols are allowing just 58.7 ppg on 40% shooting. Opposing teams shoot just 27.5% from outside the 3-point line against them. Another reason there is some value in this line is Memphis just got done putting up 85 against them. You can expect this team buckled down the last few days in practice to make sure that kind of defense won't continue in SEC action, since the Vols can't when high scoring games.

Last year these two teams met twice with totals of 128 and 125. Sure, they went over both times but that shows you just how different odds makers are treating this game. I think the value is with the UNDER here tonight as Tennessee controls the pace at home, slows things up, and keeps the point totals low.
