The Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the O’Connell Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Georgia vs Florida prediction.

Georgia Coming Off Important Win

Georgia looked like they might lose their second game in a row against LSU, but the defense made enough stops late and they were able to secure the 68-66 victory. Georgia only shot 29.4 percent from behind the three point line line, and that’s going to need to be improved upon. Georgia on the season is averaging 76.2 points while their defense is giving up 71.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 135th but in this game will probably comedown to if the defense can make enough steps. Jabri Abdur-Rahim is averaging 13.7 points while shooting 38.2 percent from the field. 

Florida Has Won Two Straight Games

Florida has a ton of confidence heading into this game and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against Mississippi State, Florida scored 79 points and that was enough for the nine point victory. Will Richard had a strong game putting up 23 points, nine rebounds, and one assist. Florida on the season is averaging 84.5 points while their defense is giving up 75.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 15th in the league and they are going to need the offense to run up the score here. 

Georgia vs Florida Betting Prediction 

I am not sold on this Georgia defense. Georiga is giving up 71.6 points per game and they are going to really struggle to defend in this game. Florida is averaging 84.5 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Georgia’s offense won’t be keeping up and Florida is going to get the job done here. Back Florida to win this game and to cover the spread here.
