KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee has opened as a four-point favorite over Kentucky in offshore sports books.

The Vols (4-7, 1-6 SEC) and Wildcats (2-9, 0-7) will play their final game of the season on Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium (TV: ESPNU, 7 p.m.)

Tennessee lost to Vanderbilt 14-10 on Saturday to fall out of bowl contention and ensure the program’s fourth consecutive losing season.

In the Sagarin predictor ratings, which are sometimes frighteningly accurate, the Vols have a 5.19-point edge over Kentucky.
