The Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators meet in college basketball action from the Exactech Arena on Saturday afternoon.
The Georgia Bulldogs will look to build on a 76-64 win over Auburn in their last game. Terry Roberts leads the Bulldogs in scoring and assists with 15 PPG and 4.2 APG while Karlo Oquiendo has 14.5 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Georgia so far this season. Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe also has a team-high 5.3 RPG as well this season. As a team, Georgia is averaging 71.6 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 34.3% from three and 73.2% from the foul line this season.
The Florida Gators will try to snap a three-game losing skid after a 66-63 loss to Texas A&M last time out. Colin Castleton leads the Gators in scoring and rebounding with 14.9 PPG and 7.4 RPG while Kowacie Reeves has 10 PPG and Trey Bonham has 10.6 PPG to round out the group of double-digit scorers for Florida so far this season. Kyle Lofton also has 8.4 PPG with 3.6 APG to lead the Gators in assists this season. As a team, Florida is averaging 74.2 points per game on 45.1% shooting from the field, 34.3% from three point range and 74.7% from the foul line this season.
Georgia is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Florida is 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.
I get the case to be made for either side in this game but I’m leaning towards Georgia and the points here. I wasn’t overly high on Georgia coming into the year, but the fact is that the Bulldogs keep finding ways to deliver and I can’t necessarily say the same for Florida who continue to disappoint. I think this one’s going to be tight so give me Georgia and the points here.
