4* National TV SMASH (ESPN2) on Tennessee +3
Motivated by 3 consecutive defeats and last year's loss to the Cougars, expect Tennessee to take care of business tonight.
Tennessee is 1-3 when playing away from home this season but 3-1 ATS in those games. Also, while Austin Peay shot the lights out last game (59.1%) to hand the Vols a loss, their other losses have come to quality foes. The Vols especially showed well in games against Duke, Memphis and Pittsburgh. College of Charleston is yet to play a team of the caliber of those three, and it is hasn't even played a team of the caliber of Tennessee (in my opinion).
The Volunteers are a solid 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog and 29-13-1 ATS in their last 43 games as an underdog of 6.5 points or less. Look for this hungry Tennessee team to pull off the minor upset tonight.
