Tennessee Volunteers Odds - Pearl leads experienced Vols deep into March

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/4/2014 4:26:10 AM

Sportsbook players will have a great time watching how the SEC East unfolds, if not for the action on the court, but for the interaction between Kentucky’s John Calipari and Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl, whose Volunteers have owned the East since he joined the fray. The Vols will be buoyed by the memory of last year’s NCAA first-round exit, so look for Tennessee in the Sweet 16.

Tennessee Volunteers Odds: +2000 to win national title/+500 to win SEC East

  • With Calipari in the SEC, Pearl will have to take abilities to the next level
  • Smith, Chism leads deep and experienced roster
  • Preseason top-10 ranking puts target on Vols

Tennessee Volunteers odds maker breakdown: THE COACHING
Bruce Pearl has had the Vols in first place in the SEC East in three of his four years, and he knows the task just got much harder now that John Calipari is leading Kentucky. Pearl now has a coach in his division that can match his ambition as well as his mouth. The Vols also have a slew of returning players, and as Tennessee underachieved last year, Pearl shouldn’t have too much of a problem motivating his players.

Tennessee Volunteers odds maker breakdown: THE STARS
Six of their top seven scorers are back in the fold, powered by Tyler Smith, who decided to come back for another year. Wayne Chism is the inside anchor and could be a double-double threat, but he can also step outside and shoot the trey, although he should leave that to Cameron Tatum and Scotty Hopson. J.P Prince is a senior forward that will help Chism down low, and the Vols will also look to frosh Kenny Hall down there as well. This is a deep lineup that many college basketball betting players should feel safe placing a wager on.

Tennessee Volunteers odds maker breakdown: THE SCHEDULE
The Vols head out to USC and their rivalry game with Memphis before a date with preseason No.1 Kansas in the new year. The SEC won’t be easy either, as Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Mississippi can all give the Vols trouble. Still, when it comes to the East, only the Wildcats are keeping the Vols from being the online sports betting favorites.

Tennessee Volunteers odds maker breakdown: THE OUTLOOK
Coming into the season ranked 10th in the nation, the Vols have high expectations for themselves after last year’s first-round exit in the Big Dance. But Tennessee has the talent to fulfill thoses expectations, and they have experience from last year’s mistakes. We know that Pearl’s high-pressure style of basketball is tough for the opposition to deal with. This is a Sweet 16 team, and with a couple breaks, possibly the Final Four.
