Tennessee won their opener at South Carolina but it did not help their narrative of a team on the come.
Missouri lost against Alabama. It was expected but they were not very competitive overall.
This is a great spot for the Volunteers to get off to a 2-0 start.
The Eli Drinkwitz era might have a hard time getting started. They took on Alabama last week then have back to back road games at Tennessee and LSU.
The first half against Alabama they looked a bit like a deer in the headlights but they eventually settled down.
Shawn Robinson played mistake-free football last week. That is probably going to be the theme this season but I am not sure it is going to be good enough to win in the SEC with this team.
Mizzou needs to stay balanced so they can work in running back Larry Rountree III. He is their best playmaker.
The defense is probably ahead of the offense right now and matches up much more favourably against the Vols than the Crimson Tide.
Tennessee got a close win to start the season, beating South Carolina by four. It was a good thing too otherwise there would be some heat down in Knoxville.
Quarterback Jarrett Guarantano looked alright but it is always game to game with that guy. This is a game where if he doesn’t make mistakes they should win.
Tennessee got the win last week even though they converted only one third down all game long. That is a bit of an anomaly. They are going to have to be better with that moving forward.
Giving up 27 points to South Carolina, a team with a new offensive coordinator and his old quarterback coming across country was not a great sign for the defense.

I feel pretty confident that Tennessee is a good team, but I am not sure I want to be backing them as a big favourite just yet. They are definitely further along than Missouri.

I know some of it was after the game was pretty much decided but the Tigers scored 19 against Alabama last. I think they can match that against Tennessee or even do better now that the first game is out of the way.
If the Vols are going to be in control and cover they should be in the 30s which gets us that over. They can be better offensively this week too.
