Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach CBB Game #675 Saturday 8* OVER the total in Tennessee Volunteers vs West Virginia Mountaineers @ 4 ET - Of course the Mountaineers have a certain reputation for defense under coach Bob Huggins. However, West Virginia simply hasn't been the same team this season. Certainly it didn't help that they lost one of the nation's top defensive players, Sagaba Konate, to a knee injury. But, overall, their guard play on defense hasn't been there either this season. That is why the Mountaineers have allowed 85 points or more in 3 of their last 4 games. Also, West Virginia has allowed 5 of their last 6 opponents to shoot 47% or better from the field. I just don't see the Mountaineers slowing down the nation's #1 ranked team. The Volunteers are highly motivated after "learning their lesson" in nearly losing at Vanderbilt Wednesday. Now back home and with plenty of motivation to keep their foot on the gas and not suffer another scare, I look for a ton of points in this one. Tennessee is averaging 86.2 points per game this season but certainly their defense has slipped up a bit of late. The Vols have allowed 36% or better from three point land in 5 straight games. Also, the Volunteers have allowed overall 47% shooting from the field in their last 3 games. The over is 4-1 in the Vols last 5 games. The over is also 4-1 in the Mountaineers last 5 games. The over is also 4-1 in West Virginia's last 5 games against SEC opponents and the Mountaineers are 5-1 to the over long-term in games in which they are a road dog of 12.5 points or more. When off a win in SEC action Tennessee is 4-1 to the over this season. Also, the Volunteers are 4-1 to the over in a home game where the total is 150 to 154.5 points. 8* OVER the total in Tennessee
