The Florida Gators have been on a roll as they are unbeaten in SEC play and in first place in the conference standings.

Florida has been a handful since the start of the New Year.
Kentucky is 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, and 5-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
My free pick in this game will be on the total and at 131 I like the over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
