The Gators are 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The Rebels are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss. The underdog is 11-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
Florida is still getting respect from oddsmakers, and I just don't get it. The Gators can't score and can't win on the road. I'll take the Rebels and the free bucket but they probably win outright.
