The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Stegeman Coliseum.
The Florida Gators look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Florida Gators are averaging 72.3 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 66.4 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Keyontae Johnson is averaging 13.9 points and seven rebounds while Kerry Blackshear Jr. is averaging 13.3 points and 7.5 rebounds. Andrew Nembhard is the third double-digit scorer and Scottie Lewis is grabbing four rebounds. The Florida Gators are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 72.8 percent from the free throw line. The Florida Gators are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.6 rebounds per game. The Florida Gators have lost four of their last six road games.
The Georgia Bulldogs need a win after splitting their last six games. The Georgia Bulldogs are averaging 75.6 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Anthony Edwards is averaging 18.9 points and 2.9 assists while Rayshaun Hammonds is averaging 12.3 points and 7.1 rebounds. Tyree Crump is dishing 1.1 assists and Sahvir Wheeler is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Georgia Bulldogs are shooting 30.1 percent from beyond the arc and 69.8 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Bulldogs are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35 rebounds per game. The Georgia Bulldogs have split their last six home games.
The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Florida Gators are just 3-7 against the spread on the road, but they're playing their best ball of the season down the stretch and are a team capable of a deep tournament run when they're playing to their potential. The Georgia Bulldogs are 9-7 against the spread at home, but they're also a team that's underachieved a bit and can be sloppy at times defensively. The Florida Gators have issues on the road, but they're the better team here no matter where the game is played. I'm laying the small number with the better team in Florida.
