Auburn vs. Tennessee Odds

Most of the online sportsbooks began offering Auburn vs. Tennessee at Vols -2 ½ starting Thursday.  Prior to this time we saw the line fluctuating between -2 and -1 ½.  70 percent of the spread action was on Auburn at -2 ½ while almost all the money line action was going Auburn's way.  The money line would pay slightly better than even odds and requires that the Tigers win outright.  Bookmaker.com was offering Auburn vs. Tennessee odds at -2 ½.  There is pretty strong demand for this game in terms of betting heading into Saturday's game day here at Gambling911.com. 

Auburn comes into this one with a record of 4-0 while Tennessee is 2-2.  Auburn also owns this series, having won the last four, though we would be remiss in pointing out that the Vols dominated during the 90's. 

Important Auburn vs. Tennessee odds trends to consider when betting this game:

The Tigers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

The Tigers are 16-6-1 ATS in their last 23 games following a SU win of more than 20 points.

These are great stats but there are also a number of negative trends that hurt Auburn.

The Tigers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

Auburn is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 conference games.

They are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss.

The Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games.

The Volunteers, meanwhile, are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 conference games and 9-20 ATS in their last 29 games as a home favorite.

Despite a few bad trends going against the Tigers, it is difficult to fathom them being an underdog in this situation.  The problem is the defense, which has yielded an average of 328 yards per game (174 passing and 154 rushing).  Still, they do have eight interceptions.

Here at Gambling911.com we like Auburn at +2 ½ judging mostly by recent history and their ability this season to beat two solid teams: Mississippi State and West Virginia.
