Struggle here between 2 very different teams and a bargain of a total for Syracuse to be honest....no team in the country gains less yards per drive as regard to the yards on the field ahead of them (OAY)...and Liberty has a top 10 ranked defense...not to mention Cuse doesn't run at a torrid pace...and should have merely 7 or 8 possessions to get to this total and that is a dream scenario!

30 DIME play on Tennessee at home over Kentucky. The Vols are -6 1/2 at 1:25 am pacific. Buy down the 1/2-point on Tennessee if your price is anywhere between -6 and -7 1/2.
Amazing how empty Tennessee's bandwagon got after a 44-21 loss at Georgia last Saturday, a game the Vols actually led 21-17 at halftime before the Dawgs put the clamps on them defensively. But was any other outcome to be expected considering the huge jump up in class Jeremy Pruitt's team was making?
Tennessee carried an eight-game win streak into Athens after opening the season with a rare win in Columbia against the Gamecocks (31-27) and a home rout of Missouri (35-12). Now the Vols return to Rocky Top to host a Kentucky team they've absolutely owned on the field (33-2 SU) and in Vegas (7-1 ATS) with a deflated line courtesy of last week's beatdown at Georgia.
And that line got added value courtesy of Kentucky's 24-2 home win against Mississippi State last Saturday, a victory in which the Wildcats were miserable offensively (157 total yards; 4-for-14 on third down), but were on the receiving end of six Bulldog interceptions, one a pick-six and the other that led directly to another seven points.
UK opened the season 0-2, falling 29-13 at Auburn and 42-41 in OT at home to defenseless Ole Miss,, blowing a double-digit, second-half lead to Lane Kiffin's Rebels.
Look for Tennessee to re-establish the run behind it's offensive line dominated by 4-and 5-star talent, one of the best in the SEC. It was stonewalled (47 gross yards on 27 carries) in Athens, but that - again - was no surprise considering the tenacity of Kirby Smart's talented defense.
Under Pruitt the Vols are 2-0 against Kentucky. In a low-scoring game that perfect record stays intact as Tennessee prevails 27-17.
