College football betting line tells us that Tennessee has named fifth-year senior Jonathan Crompton as their starting quarterback.
It is not a huge college football betting odds surprise but with new head coach Lane Kiffin you never know what to expect with Tennessee. The Volunteers are 30-point home favorites in college football betting odds at the online sportsbook as they open up the season at home versus Western Kentucky on Saturday, September 5th.
College football betting line action at the online sportsbook will be interesting on Tennessee this season. They have a new head coach in Kiffin and a new philosophy. A big part of the Volunteer’s success this college football betting line season will be the play of Crompton and he just barely won the starting QB job. "It really came down to Jonathan was a little more accurate," Kiffin said. "Both guys made a number of plays during camp. Both protected the ball very well with very low interception numbers and very good numbers in general in all preseason games [scrimmages] combined. Jonathan had a slight edge for accuracy."
College football betting line info showed that junior Nick Stephens nearly won the job. Last college football betting line year it was Crompton and Stephens splitting the time. Neither of them played very well a year ago and Tennessee was a bust versus the college football betting line. Last season the two quarterbacks combined to throw just eight touchdown passes with eight interceptions as college football betting line stats indicate. College football betting line shows that in five of the last six games the Vols finished with fewer than 140 passing yards.
Tennessee has a new offense this online betting season as college football betting line info tells us and Crompton seems to be better suited for the job. "We all know we’re going to be playing for our jobs in Week 10. That’s a good thing. The more you compete, the better you get," said Crompton. There is no question that Crompton needs to improve as college football betting line stats have him with nine career touchdowns and nine career interceptions.
Tennessee is a 15-1 longshot in college football odds to win the SEC this season. They are a 9-1 longshot in college football odds just to win the SEC East and that makes sense since Florida is in that division. The Gators are a -1100 favorite to win the SEC East which shows you just how dominant they are expected to be versus the college football betting line.
