This really isn't a neutral site game for the Florida Gators with the game taking place in Lakeland. St Bonaventure is certainly no pushover and has a ton of experience, but Florida has been extremely impressive in two games and looks to have an improved offense. This could be an exciting year for the Gators if the shots continue to fall, which has been a problem the last couple of years. I'll take the Gators by double digits.
