Florida is 4-10-1 against the spread in their last 15 home games, 7-2-1 against the spread in their last 10 Wednesday games, and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games against a team with a losing road record. Vanderbilt is 1-4 against the spread following a win and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games at Florida. The home team has covered the point spread in the last six meetings of these two.
It is tough to have any kind of confidence in Florida these days but I look for the Gators to get it done here.
