Tennessee vs. Texas Prediction and Odds 


The Volunteers handled business in the Round of 64, crushing Saint Peter’s 83-49. They shot nearly 51% from the floor and nearly 46% from three-point range. They out-rebounded Saint Peter’s by more than double, recording 53 to their 25. Dalton Knecht, a future first-round NBA Draft pick, had 23 points and eight rebounds while Jonas Aidoo added 15 points. Zakai Zeigler had 11 points and ten assists. In the blowout win, 14 Volunteers saw the court. 

As a unit this season, Tennessee has scored 116.9 points per 100 possessions and allowed 91.1, per KenPom. They’re also the No. 7 team overall. 

Tennesse also holds opponents to under 39% shooting, and they’re 17-15-1 against the spread this season. 


Texas had a tough battle against Colorado State but came away with a 56-44 win. Three players, including Dylan Disu, Max Abmas, and Chendall Weaqve, had double-digit points, while Ithiel Horton had seven rebounds. They were OK from the floor, shooting 40%, but they made just one three-point shot all night on 14 attempts. Defensively, Colorado State couldn’t do anything. They shot less than 30% from the field and 25% from three-point range. Regarding rebounds, Texas lost to Colorado State by a margin of five. 

KenPom ranks Texas as the No. 29 team overall. The team scores 118.3 points per 100 possessions but allows 100.3. 

Texas was 13-20 against the spread this season and just 4-16 coming off of a win. 

Tennessee vs. Texas Kentucky Pick

Tennessee may be slightly worse offensively, according to KenPom, but they have a star in Dalton Knecht that Texas doesn’t quite have. Texas will perform better from three-point range here, but Tennessee is still notorious for preventing shots from going in. They’re third in the nation in opponent shooting percentage allowed at 38.6%. 

We’ll see an intriguing rebound battle between Mitchell and Aidoo, but overall, offensively, Tennessee just has more firepower and a season worth of statistics that illustrate they have one of the better defenses.
