Vanderbilt Commodores | SEC (East)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+8500), Win Conference (+50000)
SSA Model Pick: None
Mason enters this season on the hot-seat and unfortunately for Vanderbilt, they have the worst athletes in the SEC. Academic standards at Vandy are exponentially higher compared to anywhere else in the SEC, thus the Commodores can’t compete with the big boys in the SEC.

Win Total Analysis
4.5 wins (+105/-125)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Low Confidence)
While Vanderbilt is routinely out-athleted, Mason did guide this team to a bowl game in 2016. Factor in that he’s beaten in-state rival Tennessee the last two years and you can see a path to five wins for the Commodores.
