The Florida Gators are 19-13 this season and they are coming off of a win over Arkansas on Thursday to land in this game. Florida is averaging 73.8 points per game and they are shooting 42.2 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 68.5 points and their opponents are shooting 41 percent. Dorian Finney-Smith leads the Gators averaging 15 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

Texas A&M is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, 7-17 against the spread in their last 24 neutral site games, and 4-1 against the spread following a win. Florida is 3-8 against the spread against the SEC, 3-8-1 against the spread in neutral site games, and 2-8 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Florida has covered the point spread in five of the last six meetings of these two teams.
The total is set at 140.5 and with the sharp shooters on the court in this one I like the over. I also have a play on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as at SportsChatExperts.com.
