College football season is still six months away, but Las Vegas oddsmakers are already at work. FanDuel released a handful of early betting lines for the 2024 season this week including a pair of Tennessee rivalry games.
The Vols opened as seven-point favorites for their SEC opener at Florida. Tennessee heads to Gainesville on Sept. 16 and is looking for its second straight win over Florida and its first win in Gainesville since 2003.
Tennessee knocked off the Gators 38-33 at Neyland Stadium this fall as Josh Heupel won his first meeting against Billy Napier.
The Gators struggled in Napier’s first season, posting a 6-7 record including a loss against Vanderbilt. With quarterback Anthony Richardson off to the NFL, Florida brought in Wisconsin quarterback transfer Graham Mertz.
While Florida is breaking in a new quarterback, so is Tennessee. The Florida game is expected to be the biggest start of Joe Milton III’s career.

Georgia is the back-to-back National Championship winner, becoming the first program to achieve the extremely impressive feat since Alabama did in 2011-12.
