Current Vols Top 25 Ranking

The final AP college football poll on January 9, 2024 put the Tennessee Volunteers at No. 17. Most recently, the ESPN college football rankings had the Vols at No. 15. There are seven (7) other SEC teams ahead of Tennessee in the ESPN poll which includes the Texas Longhorns who'll compete in the SEC this fall for the first time in school history.

Vols Top Competition For College Football Playoff Bid

As of TWIG the Volunteers odds to make the college football playoffs is set at +180. The above-mentioned Longhorns, along with the Georgia Bulldogs, will be two of the toughest to Volunteers opponents to beat in the SEC in pursuit for a CFP bid. While Tennessee won't face Texas in the regular season the two teams could meet in the SEC Championship game and will have to travel to face the Bulldogs in November. 

Currently ranked 18th in the ESPN polls, the other blue-blood program making the move from the Big 12 to the SEC is the Oklahoma Sooners. Tennessee's matchup against Oklahoma on September 21 is not only their first SEC matchup of the year but could prove crucial when it comes to the Vols odds for the playoffs in 2024-25.

Promos to Use on Tennessee Volunteers Football Odds in 2024

Below is a list of the top TN sportsbook offers & promos Volunteers fans should check out.

Top Tennessee Vols to Bet on in 2024

QB Nico Iamaleava

There'll be a lot of talk this fall in Tennessee surrounding Nico Iamaleava's Heisman odds, currently set at +1600. The 6-foot-6 true Sophomore made his first start at the collegiate level in Tennessee's 35-0 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl, finishing his freshman campaign with two touchdowns on 45 pass attempts.

In Head Coach Josh Heupul's offense, Iamaleava has high expectations thanks to his size and arm strength which is why he has the seventh-best Heisman odds over on the BetMGM sportsbook.

WR Bru McCoy

Bru McCoy is set to be a key player in the Tennessee Volunteers' offense for the 2024 season. Like Iamaleava, McCoy is known for his impressive size and athleticism, providing a reliable target for his young starting quarterback. McCoy is excellent in contested catches and gaining YAC which routinely makes him a solid betting option each Saturday. 

Come the start of the season McCoy will be 24 years of age making him a key veteran in the Vols offensive success.

RB Dylan Sampson

Taking over for the graduated Jaylen Wright, Dylan Sampson is expected to be the top running back in the Tennessee offense. Samson tied for the lead on the team with seven rushing touchdowns in 2023 and has averaged 6.1 yards per carry through his first two seasons with the Vols.

One of the top bets among sports fans are anytime touchdown bets; with Sampson's output of 13 touchdowns in 22 games played he'll be a fun bet this fall.

Ways to Bet on Vols Football Odds

Vols Moneyline Bets

Moneyline bets are straightforward: you're simply betting on whether the Tennessee Volunteers will win or lose a game. For example, if the Vols are playing against the Florida Gators and the moneyline is set at +150 for the Vols, a $100 bet would win you $150 if Tennessee wins the game.

Vols Spread Bets

Spread bets are wagers on the margin of victory/defeat, or the amount a team will win or lose by. If the Vols are favored to win by 7 points against the Kentucky Wildcats, the spread might look like this: Tennessee -7. If you bet on the Vols, they need to win by more than 7 points for your bet to be successful. Conversely, if you bet on Kentucky, they need to either win or lose by less than 7 points.

Vols Over/Under Bets

Over/under bets involve wagering on the total points scored in a game. If the over/under for the Vols game against the South Carolina Gamecocks is set at 55 total points, and you bet the over, you are betting that the combined score of both teams will be more than 55 points. If the final score is 30-28, for a total of 58 points, you win the bet.

Vols Prop Bets

Prop bets are wagers on specific events within a game, often not directly tied to the final outcome. This could include betting on individual player performance or specific occurrences during the game.

An example of a prop bet would be on Tennessee’s Heisman hopeful Nico Iamaleava to throw for over 300 yards in a game against the Missouri Tigers. If he achieves this, you win the bet regardless of the final score.

Vols Futures Bets

Futures are bets placed on events that will happen in the future, such as the Vols winning the SEC Championship or making it to the College Football Playoff.

Before the season starts, you place a futures bet on the Tennessee Volunteers to win the SEC Championship at odds of +500. If the Vols win the championship, a $100 bet would net you $500.

Recent Results in SEC

In arguably the toughest conference in college football, Tennessee has had their fair share of struggles over the last 10 years. Just three times have the Volunteers finished over .500 in the SEC in 2015, 2019, and most recently 2022. Their 6-2 SEC record was their best in-conference record since 2007 when they also finished 6-2 under the direction of former Head Coach Phil Fulmer. 

Recent Results in Bowl Games

Over the last decade the Volunteers have been in seven bowl games, winning six. Their most recent bowl game came in January 2024, beating Iowa in the Citrus Bowl. The year prior Tennessee made the Orange Bowl and won 31-14 over the Clemson Tigers. The Vols are still chasing their first College Football Playoff bid.
