Maten is the only Georgia player averaging in double-digits this year with 19.4 PPG and a team-high 8.7 RPG. William Jackson is the next-closest to that mark with 9.1 PPG and 3.7 APG on the season.
As for Florida, they’re sitting at 17-8 this year. The Gators have won their last two games, taking out LSU and South Carolina. In that Saturday game, Florida guard Chris Choizza logged 12 points and seven boards.
Jalen Hudson leads the way for the Gators in scoring this season on 15.7 PPG, and Egor Koulechov is second with 14.0 PPG and 6.9 RPG. Also in double-digits for the Gators are Choizza (11.9 PPG) and KeVaughn Allen (11.0 PPG).
Georgia is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Bulldogs are also 1-5 ATS in their last six Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six versus the SEC.
Meanwhile, the Gators are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five versus the SEC. The under is 4-0 in the Gators’ last four overall and 4-0 in their last four versus the SEC.
Georgia sat at 11-3 on January 6, but they’ve been in a tailspin since then and won just two games out of 10. The Bulldogs haven’t scored more than 66 points in any of their last three games either. The door is wide open here for a Florida home win and cover—and I think the Gators will get some payback after losing 72-60 to Georgia on January 30. I’ll take Florida.
