Randy’s Free Pick
The Alabama Crimson Tide is the more talented team, and they've blown the doors off at home, so you can understand the line being what it is. However, Florida has come along these last couple of weeks, and it's 5-2 ATS on the road. The Florida Gators are one of the best defensive teams in the country, so I don't see a blowout happening. Give me the points.
