San Diego State vs. Tennessee

2010 March Madness odds for San Diego State vs. Tennessee had Tennessee opening as the -3 favorite with the line staying put at most books including Sports Interaction.com (see website here).  Gambling911.com has seen a half point move up at a handful of books Wednesday morning.  Around 75 percent of the backing was going towards Tennessee though many so-called experts believe that San Diego can pull off the upset here.

There is good reason to be optimistic here in regard to San Diego St..  They come into this tournament having won 9 of their last 10 games and even managed to upset heavily favored New Mexico in the process. 

Where San Diego State may lack is that the Aztecs do not have an elite scorer and their shooters tend to push 3-pointers, rarely making them. 

The Vols are forcing opponents into nearly 17 turnovers a game, and the Aztcs make just over 13 a game. The Vols are holding opponents to under 40 percent shooting while the Aztecs are hitting at a 47.7 percent clip.

Sports bettors are likely counting on Tennessee's defense to get the job done. 

From Fox Sports:

Defense remains the big key for the Vols. In their only loss in their last six regular-season games, Florida blistered the nets for 50.9 percent from the floor. In the five wins in that span, only two teams (Georgia at 43.1 and Arkansas at 40.3) topped 40 percent.

And then there were the weaknesses:

The Vols' 3-point success rate was only 32.3 percent for the regular season and 29.9 in SEC games. Hopson shot 36.2 percent for the regular season but was only 4-of-16 over his last three games and 12-of-47 (25.5 percent) over his last 11 outings. The Vols were outrebounded in six of their last eight games and essentially broke even on the boards for the regular season.
