Tennessee's trek through the SEC was filled with up and downs. The Volunteers (16-15 and 15-14 ATS) started 2-5 SU and ATS, then rattled off four straight wins and covers, including one over Kansas State in out of conference play and upsetting Kentucky in Knoxville 82-80.

Tennessee vs. Georgia

Tennessee lacks height and needs to play fast and avoid the half court game, where opposing teams can take advantage of them, which is why the Vols were 2-6 SU and ATS in their next eight outings before Senior Day win over Alabama. Tennessee has to get into transition game with Georgia and the SU winner of their games is on 21-0 ATS streak.

Georgia (18-13, 14-13 ATS) confounds backers, playing at times like one five best teams in the SEC and on other moments like LSU or Missouri. The Bulldogs would have picked three or four more wins if games were 36 minutes in length, not 40, being unable to finish late. One game they did finish was at Tennessee, being a 76-75 winner as 4.5-point road favorite. The Dawgs opened as a 1.5-point favorite and they have not excelled in that role at just 4-10 ATS. Nonetheless, coach Mark Fox has the better squad and if senior guard J.J. Frazier gets his guys to put forth max effort, Georgia has date with Kentucky on Friday. For college basketball picks, it's the Bulldogs by 8.
