Tennessee Betting Predictions againts LSU
For the first time since 2016, the Tennessee offense has been on fire through the first four games and has been a major factor in the Vols’ 4-0 record. The Vols are second in scoring nationally with 48.5 points per game and first in yards per game (559.3).
Cedric Tillman, a top wide receiver, suffered arthroscopic ankle surgery after the Florida game, therefore his health is now in doubt. He’s caught 17 passes for 246 yards and 1 score.
The quarterback Hendon Hooker’s most frequent target has been Jalin Hyatt. Hyatt has 325 yards and three touchdowns on 23 receptions.
Hooker, who has +1400 odds to win the Heisman Trophy, is enjoying a fantastic season.
Hooker has already completed 71.7% of his 113 ball attempts for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns without throwing an interception. He has three touchdowns and 175 yards running as well.
In his matchup with Florida, Hooker was almost unbeatable. He ran for 112 yards and a score in addition to throwing for a season-high 349 yards and two touchdowns on 22 of 28 passing attempts.
Tillman was replaced by Bru McCoy, who ended with five receptions for 102 yards and a score that spanned 70 yards.
With Anthony Richardson having 453 yards through the air against the Gators, Tennessee’s pass defense faltered. His previous career best was more than quadrupled by that.
With 407 yards per game allowed, the Vols’ overall defense ranks only 99th in the FBC. However, with a 19.0 average, the scoring defense ranks 31st overall.
