Colgate vs Tennessee Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Tennessee is the much better team, and they should blow out Colgate by over 20 points, but the Volunteers had trouble switching off on Auburn’s three-point shooters in the second half of the SEC Championship.

On Friday, the Vols face a team that can drain it from behind the arc. Colgate’s three-point shooting will keep this much closer than 17.5 points. The Raiders shouldn’t upset Tennessee, but they’ll make it tough on the Vols to advance.
