KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Volunteers and Arizona Wildcats will make up a ranked matchup on the college basketball slate.

Tennessee will take their home court as the lower-ranked team in the meeting, but legal online betting sites favor them over the higher-ranked Arizona.
Tennessee vs Arizona Spread Odds
- Arizona Wildcats +2.0 -110
- Tennessee Volunteers -2.0 -110
The Wildcats are ranked sixth in the country, have an undefeated 11-0 record and are 8-2-1 ATS on the season. The Volunteers are 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS on the season but are a perfect 6-0 on their home floor.
Although Arizona is undefeated, their best win is against a now-unranked Michigan Wolverines. Tennessee is more battle-tested with games against Villanova, UNC and Texas Tech and could very well prove sportsbooks correct in labeling them as the favorite.

- Tennessee Volunteers -125
Those who do want to take a shot on the underdog can find the Wildcats with a +105 betting line, giving pretty good value for a team that’s ranked sixth nationally. The matchup doesn’t seem too favorable, but it’s far from impossible.
Betting The total: 154.0 Points
The total for the game is set at a seemingly achievable number, especially considering just how high-powered these offenses can be. College basketball betting sites may be overvaluing the defensive capabilities of these teams.
Tennessee vs Arizona Total Odds
- OVER 154.0 -110
- UNDER 154.0 -110
The Wildcats are the single-highest scoring team in the country with 91.0 points per game and seven of their 11 games have had at least 154 points in it this year.
However, it is worth noting that Arizona actually has one of the best defenses in the country with their fourth-ranked 36.11% field goal defense. The Volunteers also have a top-25 defense in opponent field goal percentage with their 38.02%. With that said, Arizona averages the seventh-most possessions per game as they have a high pace of play which more or less offsets their defensive efficiency.
