College Football Odds: Tennessee opens as favorite against South Carolina

Vegas likes the Vols over the Gamecocks.

The Tennessee Volunteers have opened as three point favorites over the South Carolina Gamecocks.

It’s somewhat of a surprise, considering the product that the Vols have put on the field the past couple of weeks. But they are coming off a bye week and playing at home. That matters in the eyes of Vegas.

South Carolina blew out the Arkansas Razorbacks yesterday, 48-22. They’ve been up and down with wins over N.C. State and Arkansas, coupled with losses to Texas A&M and Kentucky. They probably should have lost to Louisiana Tech, however.

What are we going to see out of Tennessee? I don’t have high hopes. Butch Jones lost to this very team in a (somewhat) similar spot last year off of a bye. I don’t buy that Tennessee’s offensive issues will be solved by Saturday.

This line feels odd, right?
