Tennessee Volunteers vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs

  • Spread: Gonzaga -2.5
  • Over/under: 159.5
  • Tip: 3 p.m. ET
  • TV channel: ESPN

Tennessee and Kansas faced off three weeks ago, with the Jayhawks prevailing in overtime 87-81. The difference for the Volunteers (2-3-1 against the spread) in this enticing affair is their starting five.

Rick Barnes inserted 6-foot-6 Yves Pons for guard Jordan Bowden, delivering another scoring punch off their bench. Pons’ length will aid Tennessee’s chances against Gonzaga (7-2 ATS) from the get-go as well, giving his team a slight edge in size.
