The Tennessee Volunteers and Kentucky Wildcats are fixing to tangle on Saturday night. The Vols and Wildcats are in third and second place in the SEC East right now, with UK holding a one-game edge in the loss column. Kentucky is already bowl eligible at 6-2, while Tennessee needs two more wins to get there, as they’re at 4-4. Both these teams have lost their last two games going into this one, so one will be ending a losing streak on Saturday.

Spread: PK
Total: 56.5
Moneyline: Tennessee -110 | Kentucky -110

This one could literally go either way right now. Tennessee holds a pretty sturdy advantage on offense over UK. They have proven pretty staunch at running the ball and throwing the ball too. They’ve also been one of the better big-play teams in the nation and the same can’t quite be said for Kentucky.

I am looking to see which team can finish the most drives against each other. Kentucky is one of the best teams in the nation at finishing drives. And on the flip side, Tennessee hasn’t fared well at preventing teams from finishing drives with points against them. However, the same can be said for these teams with the roles reversed too.

This one may come down to a game of stops. Kentucky has their home crowd in their back pocket, which should help them out largely. The Vols could also stand up pretty well to them if they are able to handle the noise in Lexington and if Hendon Hooker can keep up his great play.
