Why Auburn can cover

Auburn has only faced one ranked opponent this season, but it never trailed in its 72-59 win over then-No. 13 Arkansas last month. The Tigers have won six of their last eight games, including a 94-73 win over Georgia on Wednesday, easily covering the 12-point spread in that victory. Johni Broome scored 19 points and matched a career high with 18 rebounds, posting his seventh double-double of the season. 

Veteran Allen Flanigan scored a season-high 22 points, going 8 of 10 from the floor in his best scoring performance since February 2021. Tennessee's tendency to go cold on the offensive end was too much to overcome on Wednesday, as Florida pulled off the 67-54 upset as a 5-point underdog. Auburn has won and covered the spread in six of the last seven meetings between these teams. 

Why Tennessee can cover

Tennessee is coming off a disappointing showing against Florida, but it had won its previous four games by double digits. The Vols cruised to comfortable road wins at Mississippi State and LSU before beating Georgia and No. 10 Texas by double figures at home. Guard Zakai Zeigler led Tennessee with 15 points in the loss to Florida on Wednesday, scoring at least 11 points for the fifth straight game. 

Zeigler came up huge against Texas last Saturday with 22 points, 10 assists, three rebounds and two steals. The Vols still have the top-ranked defense in college basketball, and they are holding opponents to a 22.5% mark from 3-point range. Auburn has been one of the nation's worst outside shooting teams this season, ranked No. 335 in 3-point percentage (29.9), so it will be difficult for the Tigers to improve from downtown on Saturday.
