Vanderbilt has won and covered the number in two consecutive games, including a 22-6 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats as 11-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total of 51.5.  The Commodores are in search of their eighth consecutive November win dating back to the 2011 season, which is surprising due to their 3-32 mark in that particular month in the decade prior to head coach James Franklin arriving on campus.  Vanderbilt is 2-3 SU and 4-1 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Commodores will be seeking their first win in Knoxville since the 2005 campaign, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks in Week 13.  Vanderbilt has scored on 39 of 44 red-zone possessions during the 2013 campaign, with 31 of those drives turning into touchdowns.  It’s also important to point out that the defense has forced 16 turnovers in its last four games.

Tennessee is mired in a three-game losing streak, as it has been out-gained by a triple-digit margin in each of those affairs, including a 55-23 setback to the Auburn Tigers as 7.5-point home underdogs on Nov. 9.  The Volunteers are 73-28-5 all-time against the Commodores, including a 37-10-1 record at Neyland Stadium, which is hard to ignored when looking over the college football odds page.  Offensively, the team is averaging 29.0 points per game in its last 15 meetings in this series—leading directly to a 13-2 record.  Tennessee is 2-14 SU and 4-12 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record since 2011.

The Volunteers are a remarkable 27-1 in their last 28 Senior Day games, while they hope to improve to 79-18 during this particular calendar month since 1990.  Tennessee is led on the football field by an offensive line that has a total of 168 starts, which has resulted in averaging 185.9 yards per game on the ground offensively.

Sports bettors will likely back the Commodores due to their 6-2 ATS mark in their last eight road games.
