Noah Thomasson is averaging 12.8 points and 2.7 rebounds, while Jabri Abdur-Rahim is averaging 12.2 points and 3.5 rebounds.

Georgia Bulldogs vs Florida Gators prediction

The Georgia Bulldogs have had issues stringing together success and I doubt things improve on the end of a back to back. The Florida Gators have the offense to bury Georgia and that improves here with the rest advantage. Florida beat Georgia twice this season. The Florida Gators should also be eager to get a nasty taste out of their mouth after blowing that game against Vanderbilt. Georgia also never beats Florida. The line is more than reasonable. Give me Florida to advance in the SEC Tournament.
