2011 LSU Tigers vs. Tennessee Volunteers OddsThe LSU Tigers and the Tennessee Volunteers will battle this Saturday at Neyland Stadium. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

LSU is listed as 12½-point favorites against the Tennessee, and the game's total is sitting at 43½.

If you watched No. 1 (or No. 2 depending on the poll) LSU perform its hydraulic press crush-job on Florida last week, you’re not going to think much of this pick.

Not only have the Vols averaged a mind-blowing -14.5 rushing yards per game in two SEC wars with Florida and Georgia, Tennessee may also be without QB Tyler Bray, who left with a 4th-quarter thumb injury against the Dawgs (check status).

But our powerful database has spit out so many stats favoring Rocky Top that we’ve decided to step in front of the LSU train just one more time.

Just 2-7 ATS after hosting the Gators, the Bayou Bengals make things worse for their backers with a wallet-emptying 1-5 ATS mark as double-digit road chalk.

Head Tiger Les Miles contributes to the money drain in a big way: he’s a paltry 2-13-1 ATS with the Tigers off a SU and ATS win versus SEC opposition, plus the Mad Hatter is just 1-8 ATS versus a foe seeking revenge when an LSU revenge game awaits on deck (Auburn).

Yes, we’re aware the Tigers lead the nation with only three
turnovers – including NONE in their last three outings – but that’s the type
of stat that tends to come back to the norm sooner rather than later.

Word out of Knoxville is the heat is already rising beneath head coach Derek Dooley (9-9 overall midway through his second year with the Vols) and with a three-game meat-grinder versus LSU, Alabama and South Carolina staring him down, Dooley may be on the phone soon seeking wisdom from daddy Vince (mom Barbara is already on board, stating that she expects her son to be calling the shots in Knoxville “for 25 years.”).

Derek does bring a 19-8 SU and 14-7-1 ATS home record as a head coach into battle today, including 5-1-1 ATS when hosting a .666 or greater conference foe.

Hey, you know the saying: no guts, no glory. Summon up some courage – bottled or otherwise – and volunteer to take Tennessee.
