Iowa vs Tennessee Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Tennessee might have suffered through some nerves in the win over Colgate, but it’s hard to say that’s the only reason they didn’t beat the 15-seed by more than 7. Colgate shot 51.7% from three versus Tennessee’s defense.

In the game before versus Auburn, the Vols allowed the Tigers to shoot only 37.5% from three overall, but Chume Okeke went 5-of-9 from behind the arc and Bryce Brown went 5-of-10 from behind the arc.

Iowa shot over 50% from three in their win over Cincinnati. Tennessee’s got a serious flaw in their three-point defense. It’s hard to see the Vols solving that issue in a day. Iowa not only covers, the Hawkeyes beat the Vols straight up.
