Auburn vs Florida Betting Prediction

Auburn rolls into this game on a five game winning streak and their defense has been very strong in their last two games. The Tigers have allowed 66 and 55 points in their last two games, which is a great complement to their high scoring offense. Florida has won three games in a row and they have scored 95, 102, and 85 in their last three games. The Gators are scoring over 85 points per game this season, but they do not play very well defensively. Florida won the only regular season meeting by a score of 81-65 and I like them again here. We should have no shortage of points in this game and I think either team could win, so I will gladly take the points with the Gators.
