Team Statistical Comparison

Tennessee scores an average of 73.7 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 62.8 points per contest. Georgia scores an average of 70.5 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 78.1 points per contest.

This matchup is another game with SEC championship and postseason NCAA tournament seeding ramifications. Georgia has had a tough season, one of their worst ever in the modern college basketball era. However, Tennessee must win this one to have a shot at winning the SEC regular-season championship. Auburn sits on top of the SEC right now with a 1-victory edge. Tennessee, along with Kentucky and Arkansas, can slip into the top spot with some timely losses to Auburn and Volunteers fellow conference second-place members. This game appears to be an easy win for Tennessee but remember that the Bulldogs knocked off a pretty good Alabama team in Athens earlier in the season. Anything can happen in the ultra-tough SEC so those who enjoy sports betting should make careful choices.
