What We Like

LSU coming off two straight losses and having a dominant run against Tennessee in recent meetings.  The Tigers are a good play at -2 or less or as an underdog.  You will also get them priced cheap on the moneyline. See note below before betting.

Saturday marks the second meeting between Tennessee and LSU this season, with the Tigers winning the first matchup in Baton Rouge on Jan. 8. Since 2018.

LSU has played its last three games without starting point guard and third-leading scorer Xavier Pinson, who was injured in the first meeting between the Tigers and Vols. Before getting injured, Pinson started all 15 of LSU’s games and was averaging 10.9 points and 4.6 assists in 27 minutes per game.

LSU was also without senior forward Darius Days, a Preseason First Team All-SEC selection, for the majority of Wednesday’s loss at Alabama. Days exited the game due to injury late in the first half and did not return. Days is the Tigers’ second-leading scorer (13.5 ppg) and leading rebounder (7.3 rpg).  His ankle was believed to have been sprained.

Both players were currently listed as questionable for Saturday's play but will likely be on the court.

DO NOT BET LSU IF ONE OR BOTH ARE OUT.
