The Florida Gators continue to roll as they have a firm grip on first place in the SEC standings. Florida is 13-0 in SEC play and 9-2 away from home. Casey Prather leads the Gators averaging 15.7 points and 5,4 rebounds. Scottie Wilbekin is averaging 13.6 points, Michael Frazier II is averaging 12.1 points, and Patric Young is averaging 10.7 points and 6.4 rebounds. Florida is averaging 71.1 points and they are shooting 45.8 percent while defensively they are allowing 58.3 points and their opponents are shooting 39.8 percent. Florida has simply been outstanding at putting their opponents away when they have them on the ropes.
Ole Miss is 11-1 against the spread in their last 12 games following a double-digit home loss and 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against Florida. Florida is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread and 4-1 against the spread in their last five games at Mississippi. The underdog has covered the point spread in the last seven meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total . My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
