SEC play is back for Tennessee Football, and with it comes gambling moves to make on the Vols and their matchup. What will happen within the flow of the game between UT and the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night? Here are the five prop bets to make when the two kick off.
Tennessee -7.5 first half
Part of the belief that Tennessee Football will cover the double-digit spread is that they come out swinging. People want to dismiss revenge games, but this one specifically has been on the Vols’ minds for a year. They have South Carolina at home, and they will wear the Dark Mode uniforms, so this game screams for them to go off.
At least four total TDs each half
Although this may be all Vols in the first half, it seems pretty obvious that four touchdowns will happen that half. If it’s close, it’ll be a shootout, which means touchdowns galore on both sides of the ball all game. Should UT get an early lead, then they’ll call off the dogs, and South Carolina will go off on offense in the second half.
Spencer Rattler Over 268.5 passing yards
Against every team except the Georgia Bulldogs, Spencer Rattler has gone over this number, and he had 256 against UGA. Tennessee Football has an extremely questionable secondary. If you want to parlay this, his touchdown total is set at 1.5, and you could go over, but that’s dicey. Stay away from Xavier Legette at 85.5 receiving yards though since Ahmarean Brown should be back.
Squirrel White Over 51.5 receiving yards
Did anybody see what Lideatrick Griffin did to South Carolina last week? He had 10 catches for 256 yards. Just like Griffin, Squirrel White is a receiver under 6’0″ with insane speed. Why wouldn’t he also go for a ton of yards? White should cross this 51.5 receiving yard mark with one deep pass from Joe Milton III.
Bru McCoy Over 48.5 receiving yards
Every single go-to wideout that South Carolina has faced has gone for over 65 receiving yards. Even against Mississippi State, with Griffin getting all those yards, Justin Robinson, the go-to wideout, had 91 yards. Tennessee Football wide receiver Bru McCoy should have a field day given that stat, so this is an easy bet.
