Team Statistical Comparison

Auburn scores an average of 79.7 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 66.9 points per contest. Tennessee scores an average of 73.7 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 62.8 points per contest.

This is a game that has important NCAA Tournament seeding ramifications. Auburn has its strong offense and a team that is loaded with shot blockers. Tennessee will have a big-time home court advantage to go along with the Vol’s stingy defense. A win by either team will likely enhance that team’s Big Dance seeding. If you are sports betting enthusiast, this game presents interesting possibilities.
