Third-seeded Tennessee takes on 11-seed Loyola-Chicago in the second round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament at 6:10 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Volunteers are favored by six points, unchanged from the opening line. The over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 130.

Before taking a side, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model is saying. The advanced computer model entered the NCAA Tournament 2018 on an astonishing 11-1 run on its top-rated college basketball picks and was all over Tennessee covering as an 11.5-point favorite against Wright State in the opening round.

The Vols rolled to a 73-47 victory on Thursday, giving the computer the win with a ton of room to spare.

Now the computer has simulated Tennessee vs. Loyola 10,000 times and came up with some surprising results.

We can tell you it's calling for 127 total points to be scored, clearing the under with three to spare. And it also has an extremely strong pick for one side of the spread, saying you can count on it almost 60 percent of the time. You can get that pick only over at SportsLine.

The model knows that Tennessee comes into Saturday's game with a ton of momentum. The Vols (26-8) won six of their last seven heading into the NCAA Tournament and had the second-largest margin of victory of any team on Thursday.

Tennessee's offense can be inconsistent at times, but defense makes the Vols a tough matchup for anybody. They held Wright State to the lowest total of any team on Thursday and are ranked 25th in the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 65.5 points per game.

But Tennessee's defensive prowess might be matched by Loyola, a team that upset Miami on Thursday and comes into the second round ranked fifth nationally in scoring defense.

The Ramblers (29-5) swept the MVC regular season and tournament titles and have won 11 games in a row.

They were also one of the best teams against the spread in the nation this season, posting a 21-9 ATS record overall and a 14-4 mark ATS away from home. Their hard-nosed, defensive-minded squad has a chance to limit Tennessee's top scorers and make this a low-scoring, competitive game.
