Tennessee Volunteers vs. Auburn Tigers Pick & Prediction NOV 21TH 2020

Tennessee Volunteers vs. Auburn Tigers Recap NOV 21TH 2020

Following a three-week layoff, the Auburn Tigers overcame a slow start to beat the visiting Tennessee Volunteers 30-17 on Saturday night.

The Tigers (5-2, 5-2 SEC), who had their game against Mississippi State postponed due to COVID-19 concerns following a bye week, rallied from an early 10-0 deficit to win their third consecutive game.

The Volunteers (2-5, 2-5) suffered their fifth consecutive defeat -- all by double digits.

Auburn prevailed despite losing freshman running back sensation Tank Bigsby to a lower body injury in the first half. Bigsby landed hard on his left hip on the Tigers' opening series. He re-entered the game in the second quarter, but exited after one play and did not return.

Auburn's running game persevered led by sophomore D.J. Williams (11 carries, 66 yards, one touchdown) and junior Shaun Shivers (14 carries, 65 yards).

Tennessee sophomore Eric Gray finished as the Vols' leading rusher (22 carries for 173 yards and a touchdown) and receiver (49 yards on three catches).

Senior quarterback Jarrett Guarantano ran for a 9-yard touchdown and senior kicker Brent Cimaglia connected on a 47-yard field goal with 13:42 left in the second quarter to craft Tennessee's 10-0 lead. But Cimaglia missed two costly field goal attempts from 50 and 37 yards in the first half.

Auburn sophomore quarterback Bo Nix completed 17 of 26 passes for 220 yards and his 54-yard touchdown pass deep down the middle to receiver Anthony Schwartz provided the Tigers' first points.

Kicker Anders Carlson made the second of three field goals with 7:25 left in the third to give Auburn its first lead, and junior defensive back Smoke Monday preserved it when he intercepted Guarantano in his own end zone and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown.

Auburn brought the pressure often on Guarantano as junior Jamien Sherwood, senior Daquan Newkirk, senior Big Kat Bryant, and freshman Colby Wooden combined for four sacks.

Freshman quarterback Harrison Bailey replaced Guarantano with 7:14 in the fourth quarter and directed Tennessee's fourth quarter touchdown drive. Bailey completed 7 of 10 passes for 86 yards.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.
