In early offshore lines, Tennessee a 3-point favorite over Vanderbilt

We’re waiting for Vegas books to weigh in, but Tennessee (4-6, 1-5 SEC) has opened offshore up as a 3-point favorite against Vanderbilt (6-4, 3-4). The teams meet Saturday at Neyland Stadium (TV: ESPN2, 7 p.m.)

The line means the game would essentially be even on a neutral site. We’ll see if the numbers change when Vegas opens a line later today.

When home-field advantage is factored in, Tennessee is a 2.5-point underdog in the newly updated Sagarin predictor ratings.
