Florida answered a lot of questions and shut a lot of critics up by beating down on Missouri despite having three weeks between games. On the other hand, Georgia scraped by Kentucky, but a lot of that low-scoring result was weather implicated. With that said, this rivalry is as old as it gets, and despite it being a rivalry the games haven’t been all that close over the last decade. However, Georgia’s been winning games mostly because of their defense and Florida is going to pose as much of a test to that Georgia defense as Alabama did, and that game didn’t end well for the Bulldogs. Both teams have a strength, for Florida it’s the high-octane offense and for Georgia it’s the defense. I know defense is highly coveted in today’s game, but I just get this feeling that the Gator offense is going to come to play in this one. It’s a game I’d much rather watch than bet, but if forced to pick, I’ll take my chances with Florida and the points.
