Tennessee Vols Head To The Swamp This Weekend To Take On Florida Gators

Posted on September 22, 2021

The Tennessee Vols head to The Swamp this Saturday, Sept. 25 to face off against their long-time rivals the Florida Gators. It will be the team’s fourth regular-season matchup of the year.

According to Tennessee sports betting odds, the Vols will have to work very hard to pull off the upset.

Gators welcome Vols back to The Swamp

The well-established college clash between Florida and Tennessee has been fairly one-sided as of late. The last time these two played each other was in December 2020 when the Gators walked away with a 31-19 win.

Tennessee hasn’t claimed a victory in this matchup since September 2016, when the Vols won 38-28 at Neyland Stadium.

As far as the initial three games of the current season have gone, both teams have had their share trials and triumphs.

The Vols claimed a shutout 56-0 victory against Tennessee Tech this past Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

The win came after a tough 41-34 home loss against the Pittsburgh Panthers in Week 2 as the Tennessee defense struggled to keep its opponents out of the end zone.

Despite Florida’s considerable upper hand in this matchup, these two SEC East teams both currently boast a 2-1 season record.

The Gators have already started their season off strong, coming close to claiming an upset over No. 1 Alabama last week with a final 31-29 score. Before that, they beat South Florida 42-20 and began the season with a 35-14 win against Florida Atlantic.

Tennessee at Florida odds

Moneyline odds for Tennessee are pretty long, so those betting on the Vols will have to be confident in the team pulling off a big upset.

Tennessee sportsbooks currently situate the Vols with odds of a win.

In the case of a Tennessee victory, a few lucky bettors will be looking at a sizeable payday. For instance, a $20 wager on a Tennessee win at +800 odds would pay out $180.

Alternatively, sportsbooks are so confident in a win from the Gators that you’d have to put a lot down on a Florida moneyline wager to win a small profit. As of now, Florida has odds for this weekend’s game.

Florida bettors would have to wager $12 on the Gators for a chance of a $1 profit.

When it comes to the point spread, odds currently position the Vols at for this matchup.

The over/under for this game is set at points with -110 odds.

The teams have recorded an average of 53 total points per game during each of their five matchups since 2016.

 

Those that don’t want to wager on the outcome of the game as a whole can wager by the half or by the quarter.

Bettors can also get more specific with their wagers by selecting the over/under of total points for each particular team or the game’s overall winning margin.

Fans can stream the game live on Saturday beginning at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, Hulu, FuboTV or YouTubeTV.
